I love my 45s – but I’d be much happier if all the great 45s I’ve found had been in better shape than they are. Tonight I’m still sorting through my crates and trying to shift out the fluff. As part of my dig I ran through a bundle of Stax 45s. I’m not letting any of them go – there’s too much charm in them and *gasp* at worst they’ll make for nice room decor down the road. But I really wish I could enjoy the music. And that’s where I break down and say it’s time to look for the music on CD. That’s where this list comes in.
