Found this little baby in a junk shop in Baton Rouge for fifty cents! Signed!
Originally released in 1957 credited to Thunderwords, this record was re-released in 1963 with the label credit you see here. Not to be confused with Rockin' Sidney. Nice Louisiana rockabilly sounds. This record demonstrates the correct way to play an electric guitar.
MP3 File Here is a DJ promo copy of the song Bigfoot by Don Jones. If you look closely at the label you'll see that the scream you hear on the record is the "real scream of the true Bigfoot (Sasquatch.)" Good to know. This optimistic single was sent out to promote Don's Lp of Bigfoot songs titled simply "Bigfoot."
MP3 File You're probably already familiar with the 1968 Creedance Clearwater cover of Susie-Q. You may even be familiar with Dale Hawkins' superior original. This version by the Crew-Cuts however, really caught me by surprise.
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.
