A few years ago I stumbled across an old box of 45's, and I started down the rabbit hole of looking for compilations of older obscure B-sides, undiscovered gems, and tracks that perhaps didn't fit contemporary popularity but have aged well. And I must say that Backbeats is my favorite series for tracks that otherwise may have been "lost" or never made it off the singular medium of vinyl. There's a little something for all tastes within the 40 or so CD compilations, and it's certainly broadened my music-artist horizons, with these CDs being fantastic "jumping-off points" to encourage vinyl DJs and music lovers to dig deeper into tunes you never knew existed. "Crate Diggers Delights", "Party Time," and "Gimme That Beat" are my personal favorites. The label has been on hiatus for a few years, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the creators of these comps are gearing up for a similar project! Prices are low here on Discogs and other online retail outlets, and I HIGHLY recommend experimenting with a few different titles purchased simultaneously.
