Genre:Rock / Indie
The first female singer of the early rock and roll era, Wanda was encouraged to try rock and roll by Elvis Presley himself. It was 1955 when Wanda met Elvis during the 'Ozark Jubilee,' a country tour through the south. She didn't think she had the voice for it, but he disagreed. He even recommended some songs for her. At first she was reluctant, but she signed a recording contract with Capitol and decided to give it a try. During the next few years, Wanda produced numerous examples of raw, prototypical rock & roll. The most distinctive aspect was her voice. She developed a wild, growling sound that at times sounds possessed or strangely alien, capable of going from sweet innocence to hellcat at the push of a button. Originally released in 1959 during the 'Queen of Rockabilly's' prime at Capitol Records, There's A Party Goin' On features a solid collection of songs in tune with the title track as well as covers of a handful of early rock hits such as 'Tweedlee Dee' and 'Kansas City.' The set is highlighted by the staggering guitar playing of Roy Clark as exemplified on the standout cut 'Hard Headed Woman’. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download card and 2 bonus tracks.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Wanda Jackson, when with Hank Thompson, was persuaded by Elvis Presley to hop on the Rock 'n' Roll waggon from Country and Western. 1956 brought a contract with Los Angeles based Capitol Records, and the wild stuff of label mate Gene Vincent was obviously very influential on Wanda's work for Capitol. Both, Wanda and Gene, had the same producer: Ken Nelson. Wanda's recordings are still landmarks in the history of Rock 'n' Roll. Her stage dresses were hot: very tight, high heels and long earrings, way too hot for the late 50s. Fujiyama Mama charted number 1 in Japan. Maybe that was the reason for releasing the original 10" album. Let's Have A Party, her greatest Rock 'n 'Roll hit, is also included. Although it charted in 1960, it was recorded in 1958, so we can only guess the year of the original pressing as 1959/1960. The original sleeve was covered outside and inside with clear plastic, strong foil welded all around. It was hard work to reproduce the artwork without removing this plastic. So the original is still waterproof, like this compilation with its two bonus tracks.
