45s - Believe It or Not!

As a kid I loved Ripley's Believe It or Not!  I had several paperback reprints of the original newspaper feature, and I read them over and much weird, cool, and strange stuff out there in the just took a guy like Robert Ripley to go out & find it, then share it with the rest of us.  Fishing for obscure 45s on YouTube can be sort of like that.  I never really know what I might dig up...frantic faux "exotica," wild ventures in heavy reverb/sound effects, or just plain great records which never attracted the attention they deserved.  Thanks to the many & various obsessive crate-diggers out there who share their fantastic finds on YouTube!
