"Bits and Pieces" by the Dave Clark Five.

Don't know why I bought it as I've never liked that record much.

The first 45 in the house my brother bought in was the Everley's "Cathy's Clown."

He ran in with it, said, "Look at this, they don't break when you drop them, look!" and as he flexed it, it broke in half!

So this is for him!

I remember a stall in the indoor market selling 'ex duke box' 45's. They had a big hole in the middle and I had to use an adaptor to play them. Some of those duke boxes must have used a rusty nail for a stylus 'cos most of the records were crackly as fook with grossly distorted vocals. Some were wobbly as fook which added a weird dimension to the sound as it slowed and speeded up. My copy of Dreamer by Supertramp was particularly prone to this phenomenon.

Anyway, the 1st 45 single I ever bought with my own money was Lean on Me by Mud. Blush Before that though, my mum bought me Leader of the Gang by Gary Glitter. SurprisedBlush
