Wanda Jackson, Queen Of Rockabilly, 2000

Born October 20, 1937) Jackson is an American singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist who had success in the mid-1950s and 60s as one of the first popular female rockabilly singers and a pioneering rock and roll artist. She is known to many as the Queen (or First Lady) of Rockabilly.
Jackson mixed country music with fast-moving rockabilly, often recording them on opposite sides of a record.

As rockabilly declined in popularity in the mid-1960s, she moved to a successful career in mainstream country music with a string of hits between 1966 and 1973, including "Tears Will Be the Chaser for Your Wine", "A Woman Lives for Love" and "Fancy Satin Pillows".

She has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity among the rockabilly revival in Europe, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an Early Influence in 2009

This album was Recorded between 1956 and 1963. Includes liner notes by Rob Finnis and digitally remastered by Duncan Cowell (Sound Mastering Limited). 

Wanda was the first country and rock n roll singer to teach me a woman could growl! I would say Jackson's music is the epitome of rockabilly, with heavy, twangy guitars, a good, solid base and some serious drum shuffling. With such a great gritty voice and superb skill, it's surprising this album was released in 2000.
