WANDA AND JACK
Jack White is developing quite the reputation for squiring around countrys greatest dames: first, Loretta Lynn (Van Lear Rose), and now Wanda Jackson, whose The Party Aint Over (out January 25) was produced by White on his Third Man Records imprint. We trust he understands his fortune in collaborating with these ladies; Jackson, one of rockabillys most exciting pioneers, has led a solid and fruitful career since her debut hit single, 1956s I Gotta Know. Gospel and more straight-ahead country has ensued since her glamorous rockabilly start; The Party Aint Over is described, per Third Mans site, as a retro modern collection. We sincerely cant wait for the next chapter of her reckless love affair. Performing tonight with the Third Man House Band featuring Jack White.
