Break-In records go all the way back to 1955 with Buchanan and Goodman's "Flying Saucer" on the Luniverse label. The basic concept is a contrived interview with snippets of popular songs of the day as responses. They're usually pretty corny but are a pretty good snapshot of the time, as a lot of these were made over the years with different "topical" themes. The next few posts will be some of the more interesting ones that I have found recently. This one is on Leiber & Stoller's Red Bird label and references the Batman TV Series...

MP3 File It feels great to be back! Now where were we? Oh yes, I was posting a few advertising/promotional tie in records. Here's one from Chevrolet and Columbia records. The Cyrkle: Camaro b/w Paul Revere and the Raiders' SS 396. Here's to a new and exciting year Y'all!
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
