#187. Both Sides R&B 45s
"Git Sum" by Johnny Talbot


"Pickin' Cotton" by Johnny Talbot


Click the arrow for music


A record company will put what they expect to be a hit on one side of a 45, and almost anything on the other side. Often the flip side is a tune written by the artist, or by a song writer the label wants to reward. If the A side becomes a hit, the B side makes just as much money in sales royalties.

Occasionally, a single will have a two sided hit, or a hit with a great tune on the B side, or just have two great songs with neither being hits. Here’s a batch of 45s that I feel have winners on both sides. This gallery is obviously very subjective and pretty open ended, but here goes anyway. Also see gallery #186.
