Please contact me ( rchrisbishop [-at-] gmail [-dot-] com ) with all corrections, additions or suggestions. At this point I need deadwax info on some of the originals and reproductions listed here.

Also, please let me know of any titles and artists that I have missed.

I do not guarantee that this list is complete, as there may be new reproductions not listed here, or old ones that have slipped past my view. I have tried my best to make the information here as accurate as possible, but it is not guaranteed.

If anyone wants to take on the much more complex task of comparing all repro & original 45s in genres such as r&b, soul or rockabilly, please contact me.

I am not specifying which of these records are “bootlegs”, “counterfeits” or “collector’s items”. Many are unlicensed 45 boots. They are all reproductions, and the main point is to tell which is original and which is not.

Most of the repros listed have labels that reproduce the originals. I have omitted most of the obvious reissues on labels such as Norton, Sundazed, Munster etc.

A-side listed for each record is not necessarily the original designated A-side, but the song that is the reason for reproducing the 45 in the first place.

Mike Markesich’s Teen Beat Mayhem, has been a source for many of the 45s listed here. His book has more detail on reproductions than I can include here, and I recommend it highly.

Thank you also to Francisco Algarra and Peter Koopmans for their contributions, and to all of the G45 Central members.

  2. i’m interested in finding out any information on the garage band “the pages” out of oelwein, iowa…their drummer was from independence iowa
    a bill “saki” megonigle(a good friend of mine in high school in ’66)..they had one 45 rpm record out “high school/sugar on the road” in ’68…they were inducted in the iowa rock’n’roll hall of fame in ’99…eye’d like to hear that rare record….eye/m also compiling a list of all iowa garage bands who recorded a 45 record during the ’60’s….please let me know if you find out anything about “the pages” from iowa…thnxs…

  3. Information you need for your site.
    Thee Centurians were a band from ELA, we played at the Salesian battle of the bands and ELA College battle of the bands in the 60s. I also was in The Admirations, they played at the ELA Battle of the Bands and won, I think the year was 68. Aaron Balesterros the famous drummer for the midniters started his career in The Centurians. Anyway, thanks

  4. Wondering if you have ever run across anything about the E Bartlett Band out of Little Rock, AR.
    We were an 8-piece horn band that wandered all over Arkansas and mid-south. I played trombone for about two years. We cut some tapes at Cobra Studios run by Craig Noag. They decided to move to Memphis so I stayed in Little Rock. They moved to Memphis and changed their name to Leviathan and had some luck with AOR music.
    Anyway all members are kind of scattered and I haven’t had luck chasing them down. Thanks

  5. Chris, searching for another copy of the Nite Riders/Dave Daniels, 45 record ..not worried about condition of 45…just would love to purchase if possible..Dave and my family grew up together during the 60’s and 70’s. Record has very deep special memories for Dave and his band. Looking forward to hearing from you soon…regards, M
