   "She was hipper than most,she had the Cinnamon Toast 45's and not a
    single 33."
 The way I took the line was with an emphasis on "hipper". "She" bought
all the 45's as opposed to a late-comer like me who bought the 33 rpm
compilation Trim Crusts....which compiled tracks from each CT 45 single.
Any takers??
