Throwback Thursday: 1970’s Jukebox 45 RPM Records

1970s 45 Records: Shaun Cassidy, The Carpenters, Andy Kim, and The Captain & Tennile

1970s 45 Records: Shaun Cassidy, The Carpenters, Andy Kim, and Captain & Tennile

Today is Throwback Thursday and theĀ Junk Lady found herself looking through some old vinyl records. 45 rpm records from the 1970’s to be exact. The Carpenters, Captain & Tennile, Shaun Cassidy, and Canadian Andy Kim’s ‘Rock Me Gently‘.

The yellow plastic 45 rpm adaptor has been known to confound more recent generations as to its purpose. It is to fit inside the 45’s larger opening so the record could be played on a regular 33 1/3 rpm turntable. The adaptors are still available and in a variety of colors.

Did you know that vinyl is alive and well and still being pressed into records right here in Nashville? United Record Pressing has the largest record pressing plant in North America and they are at capacity and almost done building their second Nashville plant.

Throwback Thursday! Co-Star The Record Acting Game With Vincent Price!

Hoping to act along with Vincent Price once we get the record player hooked up. This LP was one of a series of 15 records from the late 1950’s to early 1960s. They feature different actresses and actors including Fernando Lamas, Pearl Bailey, George Raft, Tallulah Bankhead, and Basil Rathbone. Each record comes with a script for the listener(s) to follow and play along. Can you imagine some stars from today doing something similar? I think getting to do scenes from ‘Fight Club’, ‘Pulp Fiction’, or ‘Zoolander‘ would be a hit.
