By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This Bear Family comp is very similar to the Ace comp "Queen of Rockabilly". I'm only going for this one because it has 35 tracks as opposed to 30 on the Ace one. Otherwise they're both remarkably similar. Both labels have long and honourable reputations in the oldies market and neither is going to let the punter down. There's some variation in the tracks contained but it's slight. Both have all the essential stuff i.e. the rockabilly tracks contained on the original "Rockin' with Wanda" album plus the single "Let's have a party" which is undoubtedly the most famous track from the good lady (and I'm pleased to report that it still goes like the clappers on the n thousandth hearing).

The rockabilly material referred to above is some of the earliest that she recorded for Capitol (though you wouldn't know from her original albums which scattered material all over the place) and it appears here roughly in the first third of the album. Unusually (and pleasurably) tracks are pretty well in order. The lighter rockabilly touch then fades and is replaced by a harder rocking approach. As we move through the album we're more into covers and also into a more forced styling to Wanda's vocals - she did record "Party" in this manner so one can understand the idea of sticking to it in order to find a follow-up - originally it probably arose from attempts to ape Little Richard. To me several of these covers fail in comparison to the original cuts which, of course, is always the risk when covering well known material. I also find her vocal approach a tad wearing when spread over much of an album and not leavened with a little variety. However that's personal taste only - you may well differ. Certainly there is no denying that this album lives up to its title.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Released December 2002 on Bear Family BCD 16631 AR, "Wanda Rocks" offers up 35 slices of Jackson's sexy Rockabilly and Rock 'n' Roll - and not surprisingly it's a peach. "Rocks" covers 1956 to 1963 on the Capitol label and at a crammed 79:58 minutes - doesn't scrimp it on content or value for money.

Like all the titles in this extensive series, "Rocks" comes in a 3-way foldout card digipak with a large detachable booklet in the centre (48-pages for this one). The CD label itself repros the 45" for "Fujiyama Mama" - a big hit for her in 1957 - complete with its Capitol Records label bag - and that's again repro'd in full on the flap beneath the see-through tray (a nice touch).

The substantial booklet features extensive liner notes from Page 5 to 26 by noted musicologist COLIN ESCOTT with a Discography for all 35 tracks from Page 35 to 42 by ROSS WAPENSKY and Bear Family's owner RICHARD WEIZE. Photos of Wanda with admirers GENE VINCENT, ELVIS PRESLEY and Producer KEN NELSON pepper the rest of the booklet - as well as in-studio-recording snaps with Country stars MERLE HAGGARD and HANK THOMPSON (provides an Intro on Page 2). There's black and white publicity shots, trade adverts and sheet music - and all of it rounded off on the last few pages with full track-listings for two of their extensive Box Sets on her - "Right Or Wrong" (4CDs) and "Tears Will Be The Chaser For Your Wine" (8CDs). A typically top job done by Bear Family.

The remastered sound is by one of their best tape engineers JURGEN CRASSER - he handling the stunning "Blowing The Fuse" series from 1945 to 1960 (I've reviewed all 16 volumes) and the "Sweet Soul Music" series from 1961 to 1970 (all 10 reviewed too). Alive, clean and full of well-recorded Capitol Records class - the sound is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Boppin' Girls 2000 21 May 2008
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Along with Brenda Lee,Janis Martin.Jo Ann Campbell and Janis Martin,Wanda Jackson was in the forefront of Hot Boppin' Girliana.She was in the beginning a stone country singer like her employer Hank Thompson who cut at least one great slab of crazed rockabilly in Rockin' in the Congo.
Wanda followed suit but only Let's have a party charted.Her real success came when she went back to country.
But here in one place is all her rock'n'roll stuff

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 16 Nov 2010
By alfakid
Format:Audio CD
Typical 50's rock n roll style with the odd country track but that is ok.
Not quite as good as Brenda Lee's Queen Of Rock n Roll but if it's rocker music you love go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection 12 Feb 2006
By Allen Chapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This collection brings together some of Wanda's great rockabilly hits from the early 60's. She was a league all her own at the time and seems to have been overlooked over the years. This is NOT a live album as a previous review may lead you to believe. These are all original studio recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...Start Getting' With It Baby...You're Acting Like A Square To Me..." 21 Nov 2010

Alive, clean and full of well-recorded Capitol Records class - the sound is wonderful.

Tracks from her big albums are featured as follows:
1. "Wanda Jackson", 1957 Mono LP on Capitol T-1041 (7, 8, 9, 10)
2. "Rockin' With Wanda", 1958 Mono LP on Capitol T-1384 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 11, 12)
3. "There's A Party Goin' On", 1961 Stereo LP on Capitol ST-1511 (13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25).
4. "Right or Wrong", 1961 Stereo LP on Capitol ST-1596 (26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31)
5. "Wonderful Wanda", 1962 Stereo LP on Capitol ST-1776 (32)
6. "Two Sides Of Wanda", 1964 Stereo LP on Capitol ST-2030 (34, 35)

The 3 remaining tracks are "Riot In Cell Block No. 9" and "Funnel Of Love" (20, 21) which first appeared as unreleased tracks on Bear's "Right Or Wrong" 4CD box set of 1993, while her own "You Bug Me Bad" (33) was a 7" single on Capitol F 4833 in 1962.

Musically - Jackson came across like a female Gene Vincent - like Elvis' mischievous little sister - and her less-than wholesome image beloved her to Rock 'n' Rollers everywhere. Not for Wanda to be standing on the porch of her mid Fifties suburban home with an apron around her bluster dress waving at hubby as he comes home from work with a pipe in his mouth - Wanda was all big hair, big chest and big lips - Wanda was in the hotel bar with the boys in the band - downing whiskeys and socking any local in the jaw who got fresh. "Cool Love" (lyrics above) give a good indication of her attitude that virtually set up a template for decades to come as to how women 'rocked'.

Being Capitol, her band consisted of top session men - Buck Owens and Roy Clark on guitar, 'Skeets' McDonald on Bass with Merrill Moore and 'Big' Al Downing on Piano. And when she got her Country-tinged croaky voice behind great material like "Money Honey" and "Let's Have A Party" - she made it her own. On Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally" she sings "...let's have some fun tonight..." like she meant it. As the years moved on and styles changed, she did too (but with her trademark rockin' vibe still in tow). The superb "Fallin'" is so early Sixties Presley, while "Tongue Tied" is great fun as well as boppin' like the old days (and in handsome Stereo).

Like a force of nature, like life itself, just looking at a photo of the ballsy Wanda Jackson makes me smile. And this little cracker from those nice reissue people in Germany - does her legacy proud.

And it's such good fun too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack knows his spitfires, Wanda has got what it takes. 28 April 2011
By Scott McWade - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The proof is right here in this collection. Jack White had once took an interest in Loretta Lynn and subsequently produced her Van Lear Rose. In 2011 he has released Wanda Jackson's The Party Ain't Over. And while that effort has some moments, the magic resides in her original recordings. This Bear Family best of is as good as any single disc retrospective of her 50s and 60s prime. 35 tracks, the better part of 80 minutes. Jack's interest in her is well placed. She's a one of a kind rock and roll spitfire, a voice as distinctive as Howlin' Wolf's and every bit the force of nature that he was. Her voice may be the most rockin' thing I have ever heard. It's a major headscratcher that her work has flown just under my radar for so long. JB was right, it really was "a man's world but it don't mean nuthin' without a woman or a girl". If she's the one, I'm fallin' hard.

This a very good collection of Wanda Jackson. She could really do it all in the 1950-60's on concert. She was there first for the female singers.

This cd rocks! From start to finish it's a great cd. It captures Wanda's live performance energy well. I highly recommend this album, especially if you are not particularly familiar with Wanda's music.
