What’s better than a delicious Thanksgiving meal? Great 45s. Fill your belly and soul with these 45s from legendary artists and groups like Julius Cobb, Chandeliers and Center Stage. This might be our best list of 45s yet, providing you with some revolutionary and innovative sounds from the 60s. Check it out and be sure to listen to the audio samples - you’ll be glad you did.


Julius Cobb: The Wind, The Sun & Me / Oh Baby, I Want You Back Home

A Side: The Wind, The Sun & Me

Growing up near the mountains in Greenville, SC, Julius Cobb spent time in the Army before seeing success in his music career. In fact, Cobb wrote his first song “The Wind, The Sun and Me” while overseas in the army during 1956. I’d say that makes this 45 pretty special! Cobb played with legendary artists like Diana Ross, Sam Cook & Smokey Robinson over the years.
