As you are well aware, the latest version of Vogone is absolutely fantastic!!
The results that can be achieved when working directly from a suitable modern stereo studio-based (multi-track) CD recording are truly outstanding - not only removing the lead vocal but significantly enhancing the remaining background music.
However, attempting to remove the lead vocal from a pre-stereo recording source will fail - and working from an mp3 file will only make matters worse.
There is no problem converting your old 45rpm record to a digital stereo audio (wav) file, however to the best of my knowledge, no 45s were ever recorded in stereo - which generally speaking was not used in recording studios prior to 1960.
It's quite frustrating because so much fine song material pre-dates this point in time. Probably the only hope you have is to try and find a modern-day recording of it.
