Probably "Like Long Hair" by Paul Revere & The Raiders. From '61, so not really that old but it is the oldest one I have.

I want to get single from 1948 I'm on the look out.

There are currently 5 records in the database with the year listed as 1948 - but it is extremely well documented that the first 45 RPM records were released commercially (by RCA) only on 31 March 1949. While some of these records may have physically existed by late 1948, pending the coming commercial launch of the format, they certainly weren't available in the shops in 1948.

Strangely my own two earliest are both R&B records from US Decca, and the A sides are both about a beverage:


(Billboard, 2 December 1950)


(Billboard, 30 June 1951)

Incredibly, the Johnson disc was issued on 78 in the UK (Brunswick 04765). I wonder who bought it in polite, 1951 austerity Britain!

Tom Hark by Elias & his Zig Zag Jive Flutes on Colombia, silver print on purple label, 1957

I've got two or three things that's even older than that - something classical or Jazz - but that's the oldest I've got that's worth listening to

Not strictly a 45 but Mr. Burt Shepherd - The Man That Came Over From Ireland. It's a one-sided 7" acetate from 12th March 1900. See entry on this database. (Sorry, don't know how to link it with the record).

This is the one.

I added this one on discogs some time ago.
I have it, but it was not my first buy.
ca. 8.888th.

In that case, Ade, my oldest 7" is Post Horn Gallop by (George) Cathy's Band; a 78RPM on Victory Records from the 1930's.

In the early 1990's - some years after I acquired it - I visited Layer Road football ground, and that same recording was played as the players ran out onto the pitch!

I would like to get single from 1949 I'm on the look out.

I just left a comment on the entry on your record. It's not an acetate, it's a commercially available 78. I'm not nearly humorless enough though to suggest that it should be kicked off the database because of this. :smile:

My oldest memories of a 45catter are of you, by the way - through some of your reader's letters to Record Collector, including the one about the "Virginia Plain" sleeve.

Blimey Boursin, that's going back a bit - what a memory you have! Still buying REcord Collector, though. Did I say that I found an album with that 'Virginia Plain' sleeve on? It was on one of those cheapo labels - Deacon or somesuch. Keep looking for it in the house, as I know I've still got it somewhere.

My memory does not go back to 1900, but it does go back to the '90s - when I still had time to pore over each new issue of RC in amazing detail. :smile:

I recall reading somewhere that there is an LP with that same photo, but I've never seen that LP. If it ever surfaces it will certainly be very interesting to see.

And don't forget wearing glasses, Paul - that's four things in common at least!

Mick - it's amazing how many West H*m fans there are around: my Stackridge Yahoo sites are full of 'em! But I'm a very tolerant man :whistle:

Might be interesting (not in a 'boastful' way, just purely for the craic/crack) to find out how many 45catters have had letters/articles published in RC, NME, Melody Maker, Sounds, Record Mirror, Disc, Q, Mojo etc.

No I haven't done anything as good as that,
But I've got my name on Slade's USA Import CD 'In For A Penny Raves & Faves' for helping compiling it. :grin:
Oakley good luck to West(and the other bit) they might get promotion.

Nice one, Paul - I've got my name on a few of the EMI reissued Donovan CDs for similar efforts and also on all the Angel Air reissued Stackridge CDs. It's a shame - and I don't mean this from the egotistical point of view - that record companies don't enlist the help of fans more. We're not always the numbskulls they suppose us to be, eh? Better than some wreitten-by-rote generic, colourless sleevenotes and the like by rent-a-scribes like John Tobler, Lorne Murdoch, Michael Heatley and many more.
