3 Irresistible 45s from the 1960s

by Administrator 19. July 2021 16:52

We are bringing you a nice mix of slow and up tempo 45s this month from King & The Sharpettes, Sonny Knight, and Emmett Kennedy. You won’t be disappointed with this months list so be sure to check out the audio files on our site provided below and order your 45 today!

 

King & The Sharpettes: How Do I Stand Today / Did He Know



 

Label: Aldo 503. Released 1962.

Label Owner: Gerald Hille. Madison, New Jersey. (1961-1962)

A Side: How Do I Stand Today

B Side: Did He Know

 

You are going to have this 45 from King & The Sharpettes on repeat. The drum groove in “How Do I Stand Today” uses a nice blend of rim clicks and tom rhythms and the female-lead vocals come deep from the singers belly, making this an irresistible track. This one is hard not to like!

Sonny Knight: If You Want This Love / I Just Called to Say Hello



 

Label: Aura 403 (Promo). Released 1964.

Label Owner: Richard Block. 8255 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA. (1965-1966)

A Side: If You Want This Love

B Side: I Just Called to Say Hello

 

You might be familiar with Sonny Knight from his 1950s hit “Confidential”. If not, this 45 is a great introduction to Knight’s music as well. The A side “If You Want This Love” has a slow, ballad feel to it and really lets Sonny’s vocals shine. I wouldn’t be surprised if Frank Sinatra took some inspiration from Sonny back in the day.

I don’t know about you, but the A side of this 45 immediately pulled me in with its island sounding vibes. From gypsy guitar licks, flute runs in the background, and a simple, steady drum groove to keep the pulse. Close your eyes and you might just find yourself on the beach with your feet in the sand. Flip the 45 over to side B and you’ll likely find “Through a Long and Sleepless Night” oddly familiar. You won’t be disappointed with this rendition by Jimmy Radcliffe.

Along with her solo career, Linda Carr worked as a backing singer for James Brown and his band. Side A, “Trying to Be Good for You”, is driven by a repetitive guitar rift that plays throughout the majority of this track. On Side B, lives “Everytime”, a truly beautiful song and piece of art that must be added to your 45 collection! “Everytime” really showcases Linda’s amazing vocals and even begins with a nice marimba run to set the mood.

If you like drums, you’ll like Lucky Clark and this 45. “So Sick” begins with a big drum groove with lots of reverb. It makes you wonder what the drum room looked like when this was recorded.
