Collection: Song Poem 45's

Song poems are tunes with lyrics by non-professional writers that have been set to music by companies for a fee.

This practice, which has long been disparaged in the established music industry, was conducted by several businesses throughout the 20th Century in North America. Although the records may be hard to find, they are not always valuable.

Guitar legend Mickey Baker and tenor sax giants King Curtis and Sam "The Man" Taylor were among the many musicians who worked numerous sessions for song poem labels.
