Joan Selects Encore Appearance Volume 2


And this was the end of Joan Selects. Forty crackly examples of that vocal group record phenomenon - the talking bridge. Think The Ink Spots and those records that always had a spoken interlude, seemingly always beginning with the words "Honey Child ... " Or is my memory playing me tricks? Or perhaps that was Spike Jones and his City Slickers in one of their send ups.

Anyway as you can hear from Joan's marvelous selection, the tradition continued in vocal group records throughout the 1950s. You can find Joan's write up in the original post from 2010 here:

She knows a lot more about this than I do! Also on display on the original post are some rare label shots.

Woody, Thanks again for the re-ups. Can't tell you how grateful I am to be able to get these again. It's been a hell of a ride listening to them all over again. Many thanks and Kudos also to Joan (Yet Again) for the incredible sounds.

Thanks,

enoch
