Product Description

Product Description

In 1956, Wanda Jackson signed for Capitol Records, a relationship that
lasted until the early '70s. Her recording career bounced back and forth
between country and rockabilly; she did this by often putting one song in
each style on either side of a single, and had big hits it both markets at
the same time.

Wanda toured regularly and was a big attraction on the road from the
mid-50s into the 70s, and she was twice nominated for a Grammy.

This set takes in both her musical genres, disc one contains classic
country songs whilst disc two features the more up-tempo rockabilly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Justifies its ultimate collection title 9 May 2008
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So many compilations are called ultimate collections but this is one of the few that justifies it, at least as far as the music is concerned. The liner notes are informative regarding her formative years (before she signed for Capitol) but don't say much about the actual music. Fortunately, there are plenty of other places from which this information is obtainable including Wikipedia.

Wanda Jackson started as a country singer but quickly switched to rock'n'roll. Later, she returned to country music although this phase of her career generally yielded mellower music than her brief early period as a country singer. On this compilation, the first CD is devoted to country music and the second to rock'n'roll. Of course, if you are only interested in one period of her career, there are plenty of other compilations of Wanda's music to choose from. This compilation is for those who enjoy all of Wanda's music.

Wanda's first Capitol single (I gotta know) opens the first CD. Also from 1956 comes Wanda's recording of Silver threads and golden needles. Wanda was the first singer to record this song but it seemed to have been ignored until Skeeter Davis included a cover of it on her debut album. The Springfields heard Skeeter's version, covered it and had an American pop and country hit with it. Linda Ronstadt recorded the song twice (once for Capitol and once for Asylum). Since then, it has become a popular song with country music fans, but few of them realize that Wanda Jackson was the original singer. The remaining tracks on the first CD are from the sixties. We'll come to those later.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredibly Versatile Artist 16 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
This may sound fairly dramatic, but to my mind Wanda Jackson is one of the all time best female vocalists. Born in 1937, she grew up in Oklahoma and on winning a talent show in her teens, she was given her own local radio programme. Even at school age, she was clearly talented.

Her recording career began in at age 17 in 1954, primarily recording Country music, before switching to Rock `n' Roll. She would juggle both genres and satisfy both camps of her fan base by putting a Country song on one side of a single and a Rockabilly number on the other. Many artists did this at the time as nobody knew how long Rockabilly/Rock `n' Roll would last.

As can be seen on early TV appearances in the 50s (see YouTube), Wanda was almost too hot to handle - beautiful, sassy, talented, and armed with incredible stage presence (not to mention swinging hips!), she was a real first and incredibly different. It's surprising but true that what Shania Twain was doing in the late 90s - combining glamour with talent and a flirtatious stage persona - Wanda Jackson was doing forty years previously.

Beginning with her Capitol debut "I Gotta Know" from 1956, the first disc - comprising her Country recordings - gets things off to a flying start. It is a fitting opener as it showcases both of this young singer/guitarist's styles. At 19, her voice was mature and strong - and here she is singing a classic. The number begins as a Country waltz before launching into Rock 'n' Roll and back again into slow-tempo Country.

Most of her best Country hits are gathered on the first disc, including her 1961 signature hit "Right Or Wrong", which she penned herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fujiyama Mama 13 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard the track ' Fujiyama Mama' on David Freemans brilliant Blues and Boogie show on Jazz Fm, so I decided that this bargain priced album would be a great introduction to the other music of Wanda Jackson.I was not disappointed and it has opened up a whole new world for me of rockabilly and country.What an shockingly underrated performer she is and I'm just sorry I didn't find my way to listening too her sooner.Fantastic stuff and people should know alot more about Wanda Jackson.
