The vinyl LP was introduced by Columbia Records in 1948 but the 45 inch single remained the primary market for the music industry until the dawn of the album era, which began in the mid-1960s. In the album era, for a variety of reasons, many fine musical acts released only one studio album, making them One Album Wonders.

THE MO-DETTES - THE STORY SO FAR (1981) 



The Mo-dettes were a post-punk band originally comprised of June Miles-KingstonJane Crockford,Kate Korus/Korris (formerly of The Castrators and The Slits), and Ramona Carlier and who formed in 1979 in London. After having a hit with “White Mice,” they recorded their sole album, the optimistically-titledThe Story So Far. In May 1982, Sue Slack replaced Carlier on vocals and later in the year, the band split.
