May 23, 2017 Records of the Day

One of the best known and popular Doo Wop songs is “Get a Job” by the Silhouettes. The group made several appearances on American Bandstand as their smash hit reached #1 on Billboard. The original 78 rpm version on Junior records from 1957 is worth up to $350.00. An original maroon label 45 on Junior records can sell for $400.00. “Get a Job” was the Silhouettes’ biggest claim to fame. However, a copy of their 1968 single “Not Me Baby,” released on Goodway records, can get you $2,000.00 today.
