Joan Selects Volumes 17 and 18 (re-ups)


Two more volumes of "Joan Selects" have been re-upped for your delectation. Volume 17 has 30 mainly croonin' and swoonin' vocal group sides. Subtitled "Joanie" after the track by The Bay Bops (who?), this is the one for those of you into dancin' and romancin' to the crackly sound of old doo wop discs.

Volume 18 is a stone classic. 32 slices of the finest New Orleans R&B with a smattering of swamp pop and zydeco. If you didn't get this one first time round, I strongly recommend that you download now!

Here are your new links:

Oops! Sorry about that - there is no track 28. A bit of bad tagging on my part I'm afraid ...
