Product Description

20 tracks from the greatest female rockabilly of 'em all (and a heckuva country singer to boot)! Includes In the Middle of a Heartache; Right or Wrong ; her Elvis covers Let's Have a Party and Hard Headed Woman; Fujiyama Mama ; her original version of the Buck Owens hit Kickin' Our Hearts Around , and more.

There were plenty of slicked-back boys fighting for their share of the spotlight in the wake of Elvis Presley, but Wanda Jackson was one of the rare rockabilly gals of the '50s. It was Elvis himself who recommended that the Oklahoman set aside her country leanings for the time being and rock a little. That she did, drawing on a voice that cut through the din with a surplus of sass and a session band that included guitarists Joe Maphis and Buck Owens. This 20-song anthology mixes country and rockabilly sides, but while Jackson is likable tackling honky-tonk, she shines as a rockabilly spitfire. The likes of "Riot in Cell Block #9," "Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad," and "Let's Have a Party" offered an early affirmative to the question: "Can a gal rock?" The real mindblower here, however, is "Fujiyama Mama," which opens with Wanda boasting: "I've been to Nagasaki / Hiroshima, too / The same I did to them, baby, I can do to you." Pretty strange claim, considering only a dozen years had passed since two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. --Steven Stolder

This cd is a perfect introductory one for a new fan, for it offers the two sides of Wanda... the rockabilly queen and the country torch singer, although there is a LOT more rockabilyl here(thankfully). This cd features rockabilyl classics liek Fujiyama Mama, as well as a blues "Kansas City Blues", and some country/honky tonk/rockabilly "I Gotta Know" and some hillbilly stuff too. A great cd, a great price, though if you want to spend a little more and get ALL the rockabilyl classics try Ace's Queen of Rockabilly or Bear family's Wanda Rocks or just for the Gold and get Bear Family's box set, Right or Wrong! Well, you migth just want to start here, fir this sampler is such a budget price and contians all her rockabilly ESSENTIALS, and shines her in a light as more then just a rock'n'roller. A versitile and great singer who could be rough and roudy and rev ger vocie up liek a 57 Chevy or could coo sweetly like a canarie! Great cd!!!

Wanda Jackson has been unjustly ignored in her own country. She cut some of the best rockabilly period in the late 50's with such classics as "Let's Have A Party" and "Fujiyama Mama." This collection also contains some of her biggest country hits as "In The Middle Of A Heartache" and "Right Or Wrong." It's almost hard to believe, but her version of "Riot In Cell Block #9" is as good as the one by the Coasters. Wanda Jackson became a born-again Christian in 1971, but she still performs her old hits in concert. I saw on her web page that she is going to Sweden toward the end of July for a month-they still love Wanda in Scandinavia! If you love country, rockabilly, adn rock n roll, this album is a certified 5 stars. WANDA RULES!

We knew Wanda's music from when she was a rising star starting in the late 1950's. This CD is a great because it covers her Country Songs and early Rock and Roll songs. She had several #1 hits and even the ones that didn't make #1 were good, too.

The original singer of Rockabilly style music. Before my time, she was one of the best. If you like this type of music I think you will love her. Surprise! Buck Owens was a studio musician back then, and is featured on this album.

If there's any one artist who's overdue for a nomination to the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, it's Wanda Jackson. This collection showcases her early rock and rockabilly songs, along with her two big country hits and some great covers. All are excellent material. Throw in classic pickers like Joe Maphis, Buck Owens and Roy Clark and you've got a winner. And the sound! Considering that most of these songs were cut in the late 50's, the quality is remarkable--thanks to Capitol Records' first-class operation. Great stuff--Wanda at her best!

Ive never heard of this woman but kept reading reviews she's seen as a rockabilly queen. Now I dont know about that, but I see rockabilly music as fun; makes you wanna jump off your seat & move and shake it alittle. Naturally I needed this cd.I just spent weeks w an upper respitory infection, if anyone needed hints of sunshine & shakin a tail towards happiness...its been me! Lol Happy w Wanda love that classic country mixed w 50's sound. :)

Wish there were more Rockabilly tunes on this; but Wanda's voice is fantastic, low and crackly then vintage country-esk. Saw her in a small venue concert a few weeks ago, seems very true to who she is!

A Kid's Review on February 27, 2006
Format: Audio CD
This record is a must from the middle of the 50's .

Excellent singer , very good musicians and an excellent recording .

This record is still amazing and seems to sound very modern due to the quality of the recording and the mastering.

I recommend this record to all rock and roll fans
