Joan Selects Volume 19 (re-up)

Volume 19 of the Joan Selects series is a mix of vocal group novelties, ranging from classics such as "Louie, Louie" and "Be Bop Wino" to the downright demented such as Vito & The Salutations' crazed deconstruction of "Unchained Melody." No wonder this collection was originally subtitled "Joan Gets Silly."

Highly recommended - download, stick on your media player, put your feet up and join in with Andre Williams as he pleads "Pass The Biscuits, Please." Life don't get any better than this.

I'm always happy to learn about other women who are music fanatics and collectors. It's obvious Joan has an incredible record collection. It would be interesting to have a "mini-profile"/interview with her about how she started and/or what the collecting has meant/means to her, her favourite recordings, etc. Sound crazy?

Thank you, Great.

Hi Marie - Ain't it the truth about other women collectors. Been collecting my whole life. Got started in the Boston area, continued for over thirty years in California. Still have all my 45s and 78's. They are all old musical friends.

Marie - Nice to hear from another woman collector. I've been at this for over 45 years, getting my start in Boston, then later for 30 years in California. I still have all my 45s and 78s - they are my old musical friends. I especially strongest ties to music of the 1950's, Doo Wop, Blues, Rockabilly and straight ahead rock and roll.

Joan, meet Marie. Marie, meet Joan. I've got a good idea - why don't you interview each other, then we could post the results on here and on Marie's blog?

Now excuse me, the rugby is about to start - Scotland v Wales!

Howdy-doo! I hate to be a bother, but it seems that both Vol. 10 & 19 of Joan Selects have expired. No rush at all, but whenever you're free, might you be able to re-upload these?
