Product Description

63 original 1956 – 1961 Hollywood and Nashville recordings by the Queen of Rockabilly! In the early 1980s Wanda Jackson became aware that there was once again a market for her 1950s recordings overseas in Europe and Scandinavia. Since that time she has appeared in rock 'n' roll concerts, at rockabilly weekenders and has had her profile raised immeasurably by hooking up with the likesof modern pop stars such as Jack White and Adele, and a new best-selling album. "The Party Ain't Over" on Nonesuch Records, all following her 2009 induction into the Rock'n' Roll Hall of Fame. To her loyal rockabilly fans, however, such renaissance events are inconsequential when held up against her classics featured on this 2CD set, cherry picking her best Hollywood and Nashville recordings, on which she was accompanied by the likes of Joe Maphis, Buck Owens and Roy Clark, Skeets McDonald, Big Al Downing and Merrill Moore. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Format: Audio CD
The great lady was in the UK at the tail end of last year promoting her Jack White produced new album with appearances on Jools Holland and so on. It was pretty apparent that she was a very feisty lady. But then she would have had to have been to have broken into the male dominated world of rock'n'roll the way she did.

"Rockin' with Wanda" is based on her second album for Capitol which came out in the US in May 1960 though certain tracks on it came from singles recorded and released as far back as 1956, the big breakthrough year in the US for rockabilly and rock'n'roll generally i.e. she was there way back in the beginning or nearasdammit. Her first album "Day dreamin'" was a typical label copout - whilst it had a few rockers (including her most famous number "Let's have a party"), the bulk of the content was pop ballads or C&W - Capitol were obviously not fully convinced that rock'n'roll had a future. This album though doesn't suffer from any lack of conviction. AllMusic refer to it as "Absolutely the best collection of Wanda Jackson's rockabilly recordings" and go on to refer to it as "the leading candidate for the best female rock & roll album of the 1950s".

Of the two earliest tracks on this album, "Hot Dog, that made him mad" could have come straight from the Sun Studio, it has all the attributes. The other is the unusual "I gotta know" which switches from heartfelt country waltz with great fiddle to Elvis style rockabilly and manages both modes extremely successfully. "Cool Love" from `57 has strong similarities to the Gene Vincent sound of that time when the Be-bop-a-lula man was backed by Johnny Meeks on very electric sounding lead guitar and the Clapper Boys on vocals. "Honey Bop", a great rocker, from the following year also shows Vincent touches.

I have the original 1950`s UK release, and the early 80`s re-release of this album and on both copies `Let`s Have A Party` is present. So what happened to it here? Maybe it wasn`t on the US original?
Still a great album that shows a good range for Wanda`s voice, found one of the tracks a bit weird for my taste but an album well worth buying for this original female Rockabilly artist.

Wanda Jackson is one of the first young women to create a place where women could really be equal with young men singing
very high and low ballads and rough and raw rock n roll as good as their male counterparts which started up in the early days
of rock n roll in the early 1950's and continues up until the days of now 2013You have to listen and understand what Wanda
has done to bring in young rock n rollers for todays generation of young people coming into and enjoying the early days of how rock n roll began with the wonderful voices of Brenda lee and the likes.

Wanda is great but I bought this album mainly for the guitarists featured in it. Fantastic album.
