5.0 out of 5 stars Popular British singer of the fifties 26 Jan 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Though hugely popular in the fifties, Joan is almost forgotten now. This twofer is taken from Joan's peak years. Some hits are here but most are not - they can be found elsewhere.
The first album, Just Joan, is a selection of twelve standards (all ballads) from the Great American Songbook, which includes such classics as When I grow too old to dream, That old feeling and Someone to watch over me. Joan performs all these songs superbly.
The second album, Girl next door, only had eight tracks on its original release, but has been augmented here by four bonus tracks, some previously unreleased in Britain. There is some variation in tempo here. Two of Joan's major UK hits (Ricochet, Someone else's roses) are here, together with her American hit (Till they've all gone home), which didn't chart in Britain. My favorite track is a song I'd not come across before I bought this - The bluebells of Broadway are ringing tonight (about a Scotsman in New York).
This twofer is brilliant - if you enjoy easy-listening pop music, fifties style, Joan's music is well worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting talent 26 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joan Regan had an American hit, "Croce de Oro," covered by Patti Page, after a nice career in Great Britain. These are her early recordings. She's a smooth singer with almost no passion or character and yet here's something engaging about her. Musically she's on key, has beautiful intonation and perfect pronounciation. There's more than an echo of Vera Lynn, too. The standards from "Just Joan" are performed with elegance; the singles of original material are unmemorable with two exceptions. On her covers of Teresa Brewer songs, Regan manages to sound exactly like Tess, singing to exactly the same arrangements. When those covers were recorded, Teresa was on Coral, which had no release arrangement in England. In the beginning, Regan did Joni James covers and sounded similar to her, too. Of more than passing interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars nostalgia, ballads 18 Aug 2010
By E. M Oreta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joan regan, English and an office girl, sang during the 50's and 60's, so her music is not for the hop hop afficionados of today.
But for those who love ballads, and romantic evocative singing that was the norm of that period, she is superb. Her, "I'll Close My Eyes," which can be seen in You Tube, is a song to sleep by and dream of love.
