Wanda Jackson #1
I've got a great treat for you today. Wanda Jackson was known as the Queen of Rockabilly. She was known as the female Elvis. She was Elvis' girlfriend for a while. Wanda recorded some great, great stuff in the rockabilly and country music genres, and she is still active in the recording industry. Just a couple months back she released a new album, produced by Jack White (of the White Stripes).
I'm very pleased to be able to share "Reckless Love Affair", a 1967 release of 12 songs. This album is closer to pure country than the rock-n-roll/rockabilly of her earlier recordings. It was also one of her best-selling records, peaking at #17 on the country music charts.
1 Reckless Love Affair
2 The Box It Came In
3 Look Out Heart
4 Because It's You
5 What Have We Done
6 This Gun Don't Care
7 Tears Will Be The Chaser For Your Wine
8 I Wonder If She Knows
9 Long As I Have You
10 Let Me Talk To You
11 My Baby's Gone
12 You Can't Make A Heel Toe The Mark
So, does the title of this post, Wanda Jackson #1, imply that there is more Wanda Jackson to come? Perhaps... :-)
