Wanda-Jackson-The-Party-Aint-Ov-529466 WANDA JACKSON The Party Ain't Over

2011 Australian 11-track CD album, Third Man and Nonesuch Records release the new album from Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson. The Party Ain't Over, produced by her friend Jack White. With a remarkable career that began in 1955, Jackson, credited with being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll song, 'Let's Have a Party'; leading her to now be known around the globe as 'The Queen Of Rock' and 'The First Lady of Rockabilly,'. The Party Ain't Over was recorded in Nashville at White's studio, where he brought together a formidable band, including himself, Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather/Raconteurs), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs), Ashley Monroe, Jackson Smith, and Karen Elson, to name a few, and hand picked the songs-11 tracks dating in origin from the early 1900s to 2007. The result: a retro modern collection of music that showcases Wanda, now in her seventh decade and sounding as wickedly charismatic as ever. From the album opener, the classic Johnny Kidd and the Pirates hit 'Shakin All Over' to the final track from Jimmie Rodgers' notable blues series, 'Blue Yodle #6'; Wanda's soulful, ripping voice barrels through from song to song, moving effortlessly from rockabilly, rock and roll, country and gospel-leaving a vibrant, distinctive stamp on a release that embraces the past just as much as it embraces the future.
