Great googa mooga! Joan comes up with a mega compilation on the theme of getting yourself from A to B and back again by train, plane, ship, motorcycle, bus, automobile or even taking part in a hillbilly hot rod race. Mixing '50s doo wop, pre-World War II blues, R&B shouters, rockabilly, boogie woogie, jump blues, real country, and rock'n'roll, Volume 25 is a wild ride. Joan has also provided a folder of label shots plus track details as listed below.

This is a bigger than usual download - 284.1 MB, but as connoisseurs of fine wine say - "it demands attention." Perhaps the best "Joan Selects" to date?
