Favourite Music Reads of the 00s #6 (45s)

“The 45… perpetuated the time limits of the 78, although in an admittedly greatly improved form. Miniaturized, lightweight, and unbreakable, it could be held in the palm of the hand yet contained immeasurable depths and reaches, a perfect mystical object made of cheap plastic.”
Geoffrey O’Brien, Sonata for Jukebox: An Authobiography of My Ears
