45 rpm's, does anyone remember them?
I grew up in the 60's and early 70's in the days of vinyl. I listened to variety of music back in that day of the classic music. Everything from The Who, Simon & Garfunkel, Beatles, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, Moody Blues, Janis Joplin, Mamas and the Poppas, Bee Gees, Beach Boys, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Pink Floyd, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Monkees, the Fortunes, and so many more....
I got a record player when I was eleven. I was so happy, but I didn't have many records. My dad bought me a stack of 50 records (45's) for $1. Remember this was the 60's. My husband says it was probably records from juke boxes that were discarded or replaced. Anyway, there was a wide variety of music there and I played every one of them over and over. I got a few groups that I liked and knew, but many that I didn't know. There was "Blueberry Hill" and "Annabelle". I bet no one ever heard of that. "Won't you come back to me, I'm so lonesome you see, lonesome for you Annabelle..."
