Jack White is developing quite the reputation for squiring around country’s greatest dames: first, Loretta Lynn (Van Lear Rose), and now Wanda Jackson, whose The Party Ain’t 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 rockabilly’s most exciting pioneers, has led a solid and fruitful career since her debut hit single, 1956’s “I Gotta Know.” Gospel and more straight-ahead country has ensued since her glamorous rockabilly start; The Party Ain’t Over is described, per Third Man’s site, as a “retro modern collection.” We sincerely can’t wait for the next chapter of her reckless love affair. Performing tonight with the Third Man House Band featuring Jack White.
