"Story of Love" - The Five Keys on 45, 78 and unissued

Joan sent this great collection of Five Keys mp3s – all from recordings made while they were with Aladdin Records. Many have been ripped from original discs – both 45 rpm and 78 rpm, so, yes, there is some “surface noise”. The bitrate varies, but there is nothing lower than 128 kbps. Beneath the tracklist you’ll find Joan’s explanation of the provenance of each track, although I reckon that track 18 sounds like a 78 rpm rip.

There’s Inkspots influenced ballads and rockin’ jump tunes. The Five Keys were an outstanding R&B group as you can hear by downloading this selection.

Ripped from vinyl, shellac and what-the-heck. Variable bitrates not less than 128 kbps.
