i've recently come into around 200 american oldies 45s of varying styles. labels include Checker, Specialty, Tamla, and tons more.
in fact it's a Tamla that has inspired me to ask for some help.. in going through the tunes i set a few aside that really hit me, and searched the web for info. one i mentioned here the other day -- Mabel John "No Love".
when i searched for that, i came up with this:
http://capitolsoulclub.homestead.com/Ra ... wn45s.html
i have a few others from those lists too...
others that stuck with me were Nappy Brown "Any Time Is the Right Time", Clyde Otis "Peanut Vendor", and a Gladys Knight & the Pips on Fury...
there are a lot of less-interesting tunes, but i'd like to get some better context on what i've got.
can you guys (or anyone) please suggest good websites or other info sources?
ps- Juha i know you'll be extra glad to help since i am your favorite baffer
