Joan Selects - Volume 12 - Answers and Answers to Answers


And even an answer to an answer to an answer to an answer. Phew! I think I got that right. Check out the sequence from track 15, the beautiful “A Thousand Miles Away”, through to track 19, “Daddy’s Home But Momma’s Gone”.

Yep, the rock’n’roll mp3 compilation series without which our lives would be practically unlivable is back. This time Joan has come up with a monstrous 39 track selection of that 1950s R&B / rock ‘n’ roll phenomenon, the answer record. After all, if a record is a big hit, what better way is there to cash in on the success than to produce a follow-up which sounds kinda like the original, maybe has the same artist who helped make the original disc a success, and maybe even moves the storyline on a bit? Anyway here’s a whole heap of mainly well known originals followed by their usually not so well known answer records.

So once more it’s thanks to Joan, not only for selecting the sounds, ripping them from the original vinyl and researching the issue details, but also for a folder of more than 30(!) label scans. Big applause for Joan please!

Ripped from vinyl at various bitrates.
