There have been some requests for re-ups of volumes of Joan Selects. I have therefore updated the Joan Selects page where you can now find working links for Volumes 1 - 20 plus the "Doo Wop Christmas" volume. There are still a few volumes to add as Joan kindly compiled some additional "Encore Appearance" volumes plus "Joan Selects 2017". I hope to add those to the page soon. And then there is the short series "Joan Spins Again" to throw into the mix!
There has been a delay in posting during the last couple of weeks as the Dreaded Lurgie has laid your blogger low. I have arisen from my bed of pain to sort out the Joan Selects links and will now attempt to complete a post which has been in the pipeline for about 10 days. Be patient cats 'n' kittens!
The blog recently passed some kind of milestone when the total page views hit the 3,000,000 mark. I had no idea there were so many people with such good taste on this supposedly benighted planet. When the apocalypse arrives some of us at least will go down swingin'.

This is a site dedicated to rockin' 1940s and 1950s music, ripped from vinyl. Some cuts are a bit on the rough side. If you're looking for audio perfection you're on the wrong site baby! If you like what you hear on this site please buy this kind of music. There are many reasonably priced reissues available from web dealers or perhaps from your local record shop, if it still exists. These reissues will be in far better sound quality than the vinyl rips on this site and they will usually have more up to date liner notes and info, so go out and splash a little cash now and again. Help keep those reissue labels going in these difficult times.
No in-print CDs will be posted here. In fact no CDs will be posted here. I will occasionally list recommended purchases to help you hear more from artists featured on the blog.
"The night is the corridor of history, not the history of famous people or great events, but that of the marginal, the ignored, the supressed, the unacknowledged; the history of vice, of error, of confusion, of fear, of want; the history of intoxication, of vainglory, of delusion, of dissipation, of delirium."
