Ballads of Wanda Jackson
Although Wanda Jackson will always be best remembered for her fiery rockers of the 1950s, the truth is that Wanda started her career singing country music and, despite a brief flirtation with rockabilly, she made her living from country music for most of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s. This compilation draws tracks from her early mid-1950s recordings to her excellent country recordings of the early 1960s, focusing on Wanda's ballad style. These tracks are as great as they're sadly overlooked, in fact the case can be made that if Wanda had never recorded her rocking tracks, she would have been known as one of the greatest country female singers, afforded the same respect as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton. This collection includes her biggest hit, Right Or Wrong, and many other great recordings in the ballad style. Once again, Bear Family offers you something unique you won't find anywhere else!
