Three 45s to Celebrate the Start of 2020

by Administrator 24. January 2020 14:20

It is 2020 and we all made it out alive. Congratulations! To celebrate, we are bringing you a number of high-energy female focused 45s to start off your New Year. The first lineup of 2020 consists of Marva Josie, Johnette, and a collaboration between Deena Johnson and Ricky Davis. Each of these 45s offers a unique sound and we think you are going to have a hard time passing these up.

Marva Josie: Love’s Burning Fire / I’m Satisfied


Label: Julmar 254. Released in 1967.

Label Owner: Marva josie & other. J&M Production of New-Jet, Inc. 5037 Broadway, New York, NY. 201 West 49th St. New York, NY. (1967-1970)

A Side: Love’s Burning Fire

B Side: I’m Satisfied

If you are looking for a high energy 45 this Marva Josie compilation might be the one for you. The A side, “Love’s Burning Fire”, starts right out of the gate with a quick tom roll and brass melody to kick things off. Flip the 45 over and the tempo slows down a few bpms but you’ll still keep your feet tapping. Listen to both tracks using the link provided below and enjoy all that Marva Josie has to offer.

The second 45 for our listeners to start out the New Year comes from another female vocalist named Johnette. If you need a little encouragement in your relationship “I Gotta Hold On (To My Man)” is the perfect track for you. The A side reels you right in with its hooky bass line. The track uses a simple chord progression and rhythm, but sometimes that’s all you need! Check it out using the link below.

We are bringing you a call and response 45 between Deena Johnson and Ricky Davis for our third 45 of January 2020. These tracks are guaranteed to keep you entertained as the chemistry between Deena and Ricky is irresistible. The instrumentals in “There’s Gonna Be A Showdown” sounds oddly familiar to us, let us know in the comments what it reminds you of. There are few things better than a ripping blues harmonica and “Who Me? Yeah You!” delivers exactly that.
