My specialty is "vintage" children's records. Specifically, this refers to 78-rpms which for the most part were phased out in the USA by the end of the 1950s. I cannot give reliable advice on 45 or 33 1/3 rpm records.

Erick Byrd

I can answer all questions related to hit songs and pop artists of the rock and roll era. My specialty is U.S. Billboard Top 40 chart history and one hit wonders from 1950's through the 90's. I can also research lyrics to songs. I am more knowledgeable in the area of pop and rock songs, but I am willing to research soul and country songs. I cannot answer questions relating to classical, jazz, or rap songs. Also, I'm not an expert on music videos.

If you want to know who recorded what, when and how did it fare on the pop charts then give me a call! UK releases are a speciality!

I have a good general knowledge of oldies rock and roll, traditional country and some pop music up until the late '60s and especially pre British invasion stuff. Automotive songs are a specialty of mine and I love Doowop and R&B oldies.

Lou Simon

I can answer questions about pop music from the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. I can help track down hard to find songs based on lyric fragments or other minimal information. I was an expert in this field but due to a family situation, was away from e-mail for a couple of weeks and forgot to put in a vacation listing with AllExperts.

Brian Westland

I can answer questions related to a wide range of popular music from 1900 to about 1990. Specifically, I am especially well-versed in the "Oldies" of classic hit singles from around 1955, and the birth of the rock n' roll era through to the Eighties.

Stu Reben

I have been an expert on the oldies for many years, having grown up in that era and accumulating a rather large record collection. My greatest expertise is in the areas of Doo Wop and the music of the 60`s. What I do not remember I can usually find in my vast collection of music source books.
