by Administrator 25. January 2022 10:51

That’s right folks, we have not 1, but 2 lists of 45s to kick things off in 2022. There’s no special themes either, just a good variety of some of our favorite 60s and 70s artists. Some of which you might even recognize from a band called The Temptations! 

Willie White & The Bleu Matts: Everybody Dance / Can It Be You



Label: Odessa 306. Released 1963.

Label Owner: 1330 West North Ave, Milwaukee, WI. 3933 N. Teutonia, Milwaukee, WI (1962-1969).

A Side: Everybody Dance

B Side: Can It Be You


If you haven’t heard of the one of a kind Willie White, you are in for a treat. White’s energy in “Everybody Dance” is hard to forget and resembles songs like “Twist and Shout” with its swinging groove, powerful vocals and strong horns section. Listening to this 45 will surely take you back to the 60s dancing in your favorite club.

Otis Williams and the Charms: Gotta Ge Myself Together / I Fall to Pieces

A Side: Gotta Get Myself Together

B Side: I Fall to Pieces


Otis Williams, aka “Big Daddy”, needs very little introduction as one of the original founders of a little band called The Temptations. It’s always refreshing to see artists release music under their own name, giving us a different taste of what they are capable of. This 45 by Williams brings an almost country like sound to his historically soulful sound. A must have for any 45 enthusiast or fan of The Temptations.
