Editorial Reviews

"It's an exciting time to be Wanda Jackson," Austin's American-Statesman declared in October on the eve of Jackson's 73rd birthday bash at the Continental Club there. The undisputed Queen of Rockabilly - a touring powerhouse for more than 50 years - is releasing her debut disc for Third Man/Nonesuch Records, the aptly titled The Party Ain't Over.

This collection of vintage and contemporary covers was produced by fan and new-found friend Jack White at his Nashville studio and recorded with a late-night honky-tonk feel by members of My Morning Jacket, the Raconteurs, and Dead Weather, among others. The White-curated lineup of tunes, says Jackson, showcases "all the various types of music that I've done through the years-some country, some gospel, some rockabilly, some rock n' roll. It's got all of that, and we threw in a Bob Dylan song 'Thunder On the Mountain,' just to be safe."

The spirited Jackson, revered for such classic singles as "Let's Have a Party" and "Fujiyama Mama," proves that brash rock and roll attitude need not have an age limit. Her trademark growl remains intact on rockers like "Rip It Up" and "Nervous Breakdown"; she opens the set with an echo-laden sneer on a rollicking version of "Shakin' All Over" and ends it 10 songs later with a plaintive take on Jimmie Rodgers' "Yodel #6." Along the way she tackles the Andrew Sisters kitschy "Rum and Coca Cola" and a big-band rendition of the DeCastro Sisters' "Teach Me Tonight," and she out-sasses-and out-classes-Amy Winehouse on a cover of the British bad girl's "You Know I'm No Good," which has already been released as a single.

I just need to spit a little about this record. You'll see a reviews here complaining about Jack White's production, and I'll go as far to say that there's a touch of "horn porn" going on on this record. The arrangements on the horns are a little raucous, regardless of the songs vibe. But, as far as hearing complaints about the mix of Wanda's vocals- they're recorded within the spirit of the songs. But what really got my goat was reading some reviews ripped off from Sound Opinions comparing the production to Jack White pretending to be Phil Spector. You know who you are. Really? Isn't it bad enough Jim Derogatis doesn't know what he's talking about, now I see folks emulating his ignorance on Amazon reviews? Maybe it's just coincidence, and if it is and TWO people in the world think this record sounds anything like Phil Spector's work, I apologize for comparing an innocent bystander to the "frozen-in-pubescence-holier-than-thou-fatboy-snobbery of Derogatis.... *ahem* I digress.
This album is an attempt to catch the spirit of a woman's music who had been out of the limelight for years. I think it's absolutely great a 73 year old woman can make an Amy Winehouse song feel sexier. When I first heard "Shakin' all Over" on the radio, I was literally fired up! I had no idea who Wanda Jackson was, I had no idea she was in her golden years, and I had no idea Jack White had anything to do with it, and you know what? I wanted to see the dirty pin-up girl screaming out those vocals. I was thinking something like the girl from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs hot; grungy, unhinged, all-woman kind of hot. And she actually looks like an elderly waitress from Houston! I mean, that alone is enough to listen to this record! This lady still has it!

I'm still trying to come to grips with the fact that I'm 60 years old and had never heard of this amazing woman until... two days ago! I read about her in the local paper since she was doing a concert here that night. I've now spent the past 48 hours listening to pretty much everything she's ever done. Now... onto this record. In my opinion, Jack White can do no wrong and he's done absolutely nothing wrong here. There are complaints about the 'heavy-handed' production. Are you freakin' kidding me? Name me any other 74 (or 20 year old, for that matter) woman who could rise above the raunch on this album. That she rocks is the understatement of the decade. Do yourself a favour and play the first 30 seconds of her original version of 'Rip it Up', then immediately cut to the version on this. All doubt will be silenced. She sounded fantastic then and she sounds even better now. White loads up the record with rawking horns, killer guitar and drums, unbelievable reverbed vocals and a stellar song selection. Apparently Dylan's 'Thunder on the Mountain' is one of the greatest rockabilly songs ever written - who knew! Jack White is a genius, plain and simple. Did you really want him to bow down to Jackson and deliver a pleasant homage. Jack does whatever he wants how he wants and you either jump on for the ride or stay home. Wanda, to her eternal credit, jumped. This is a monster album, plain and simple - arguably the best 'rawk' album released in the past decade. Apparently Wanda's new album is a collaboration with Justin Townes Earle. While I don't doubt this will be another excellent record I don't think it will raise your pulse to the point of explosion like this one. I'm looking forward to it because I'm a big fan of Earle's and I applaud Wanda Jackson for taking chances and showing the world how it's done.

I was not prepared for what I heard on this CD. Wanda Jackson, the seventy three year old, iconic country western star, with ties going all the way back to Elvis, lives up to her profound title, "The Party Ain't Over".

This CD kicks butt with incredable arrangements of covers that range from oldies to contemporary. I particularly liked Wanda's fueled up version of Bob Dylan's "Thunder on the Mountain" from his "Modern Times" CD. The song revved up into overdrive, with Wanda belting out the lyrics at hyperspeed and just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier, the guitars kicked in and blew me away.

There were unusual and incredable arrangements of Little Richard's, "Rip it Up", Amy Winehouse's "I Cheated Myself",in which Wanda sounded remarkably like Ms. Winehouse, and even an exquisite version of the old classic by the DeJohn Sisters...."Teach Me Tonight", along with many more.

White Stripes leader, Jack White,produced the project and worked magic, in a Rick Rubin way of getting the most that an artist has in them. Along with a diverse and powerful band including Mr. White, and Patti Smith's son Jackson, among other great musicians, the final product was an eclectic group of covers that will just blow you away and lives up to Wanda's prophetic title, that "The Party Ain't Over" yet baby.
