The Wanda Jackson thread is about halfway down the first page of this sub-forum. ;-)

I was lucky enough to see Wanda a few times last year & she is still amazing. I'm betting this will be one of the best tmr releases to date!

She's doing a UK date later this year, I hope to get to it. Could be a last chance.

So excited about this. Discovered some Wanda Jackson when I raided my Grandparents' old record collection (along with a mint of Chet Atkins), pretty interested to hear the Winehouse cover myself...

hey gang, until the record comes out, why not compare all the versions of "Let's Have a Party" we have

one's i can recall:

Wanda Jackson
The Collins Kids
The 5.6.7.8s
Paul McCartney (from the Run Devil Run album)
Led Zeppelin (actually part of the Whole Lotta Love medley from How the West was Won)

I'm pretty sure Elvis Presley did it as well, but I can't put my finger on it

Well, for what it is worth, the single released on the 26th is being described as the first two song to come out of the recording session. Might be just the way the reporter choose to describe it, or maybe a single to be released before the album. Guess we will wait and see. Until then here is the original source.

and okay, I will play

It is alway fun to see what a veteran can do covering a modern song for one, and the song fits in so well with the bad girl perspective Wanda wrote her songs from 50 years ago. I think it could turn out to be a brilliant choice.

I'm going to keep an open mind to the song. Any negative feelings I have toward Amy Winehouse are really silly and have nothing to do with talent or tabloids.

More details about the full length record

Wanda interview- Tulsa world

Here is the part about the record-

The big buzz on this visit was the Queen of Rock’s recent studio work with the prince of American rock ‘n’ roll, White Stripes band founder Jack White. It’s the first new material from Jackson in perhaps decades, she and her husband and manager, Wendell Goodman, said.

After the long lines for autographs faded, Jackson sat down to talk to the Tulsa World about her new music.

“Even after all these decades, I’m finding that I’m still doing things that I’ve never done before,” said Jackson. “But when Jack White asks me to do something, I’ll bend over backwards to do it.”

White and Jackson recently paired to record songs she’s never done before – and songs she probably wouldn’t be interested in if it wasn’t for White’s instruction.

“Well, Jack is quite the musician. He really stretched Wanda,” Goodman said at the venue. Goodman is Jackson’s husband of close to 50 years – and also her longtime manager. “These are songs that she would not otherwise do.”

Jackson’s working her trademark growly vocals on a version of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good” and the Johnny Kidd and the Pirates’ scorcher “Shakin’ All Over.” The songs will be part of a two-sided, 7-inch vinyl release. The tunes will also be released digitally via iTunes on Jan. 26, she said.

“Jack’s just super terrific,” said Jackson. She said White’s not at all intimated by working with someone who’s been in the business for over half a century.

“I didn’t think I’d like the Amy Winehouse song at all,” admitted Jackson of the 2006, jazzy R&B and hip-hop influenced tune. “But once I started singing, it all changed. It is a powerful, sweet song.

“To have someone like Jack in my corner, well, he knows exactly what he wants and knows my career better than I do,” she said, then smiled.

Rock and country royalty also showed up to support Jackson’s visit, including longtime Tulsa radio personality Billy Parker, and author and Oak Ridge Boys manager Jim Halsey. Halsey noted that Jack White also penned a tune which the Oak Ridge Boys recently covered, “Seven Nation Army.” Members of the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame were also in the crowd.

Afterward, Jackson signed autographs for a long line of fans young and old – from toddlers to seniors and every age in between.

“I’m busier now than I’ve ever been in my life,” Jackson said after the event. “I can honestly say that. But these days, I take a plane instead of a car and I have bigger crowds. I also make a little more money, and that’s nice, too.”

Her tour plans this year will take her through major cities like New York City, as well as Australia and Europe, she said.

As for what else is coming with new music, Jackson said she’s left it all to White. She will return to his home studio in Nashville next week to record more tunes, she said. One thing she did confirm, though – there will definitely be more singles.

“You’re gonna hear me do some unusual things,” she said with a laugh. “I have high hopes, certainly.”

She is just a big ol' sweetheart. Every single time I've seen her she has taken the time to sign autographs & speak to every fan in line. Both she & Wendell are just good, gracious folks. Go see her if you have the chance. You won't be sorry!
