British music writer Jon Savage is in love with the 7” inch vinyl 45, and who could blame him? He’s compiled a double vinyl album, The High Sixties on 45, in which each of the four sides is devoted to the most extraordinary singles released in 1965, 66, 67 and 68. We’ll hear three key tracks from that today by The Chiffons, The Wheel-A-Ways and Norma Tanega, alongside a classic from Kraftwerk, whose co-founder Florian Schneider died this week.
