Vintage Thingie Thursday - Age of 45 rpm's

For Vintage Thingie Thursday this week I want to feature a square metal 45 rpm record box. My hubby purchased this around 1960.  Most all of the 45's are his, I think I might have added a couple.  He used to play in a band in the 60's so he had every record he could get his hands on.

Do you happen to remember any of these Vintage Record Labels? The box is overflowing. Theres just too many memories to part with any of his records, although we rarely get them out. (However, we do still have a turntable).



Do you ever visit any of those Vintage Record stores?

Linking with Suzanne @ http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/ for Vintage Thingie Thursday.

I have a lot of these size records that are very old. I do not believe any of them have these labels. Nice collection and a keeper.

I sure do recognize a few of those record labels. Mercury for one. What fun we use to have back in the 50's and 60's listening and dancing to those records. Remember those little thingys that went in the middle of the record so it would fit on the spindle?

Great collection, Ann and great Vintage Thing...thanks for sharing. Come on by CollectInTexas Gal for a look at the 1940's and how it's making a Big ComeBack Today!

I even have some of my parents 1950 record albums. I have a chest in the livin' room filled with the things datin' from 1950 through the eighties. Heck, I might be sittin' on a fortune! Heeehehehe!

God bless ya and have yourself a sunshiny kinda day!!! :o)

We have a stack of old 45's and I love digging them out and playing them but you have to stay right beside the turntable to keep changing them. Kids with their ipods have no idea what it means when you tell them to 'change the record'! :D

I have a record player downstairs, but I don't think it has the adaptor for 45's.

Oh gosh, all I remember is Mercury.

I have two boxes of 45's from when I was a pre-teen and teenager - I don't even remember some of the songs I bought. I read the titles of some of them and thought "hmmmmm ... what on earth is that?!" Too funny!

Happy VTT!

Love this! Don't think I have seen it. It would be a great vignette in the music room when you get everything switched around, if you could keep it safe from the grands lol! Love you sis

Oh, how I wish I still had my old 45's. This reminds me of Crimson & Clover, Mony Mony, and so many more. Thanks for sharing.

What a great collection you guys have here.
I only saved a few of my 45's. Mostly of Elvis. lol
We are having one of the biggest antique flea market shows setting up right now only 14 miles from me and I am trying my best to stay home and work instead of going today.
You see how hard I am working don't you.
Great post
Have a nice weekend
Love
Maggie

What a collection you have! I remember going to the department store and spending my allowance on one new record every week....a whole .99cents. Thanks for sharing and thank you for stopping over to enter my giveaway.

My dad had an 45 RPM copy of Andy Williams singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic which he sang at the funeral of RFK! I would love to have that but don't know where it went after my folks passed away.
I had a huge record collection which I lost in a termite infestation in our storage back when my folks were still living! :(
But I loved those old vinyl records. I see them at the thrift stores.
