When Jackson first toured in 1955 and 1956, she was placed on a bill with
none other than Elvis Presley. The two hit it off almost immediately. Jackson
said it was Presley, along with her father, who encouraged her to sing
In 1956, Jackson finally signed with Capitol, a relationship that lasted until
the early '70s. Her recording career bounced back and forth between country and
rockabilly; she did this by often putting one song in each style on either side
of a single. Jackson cut the rockabilly hit "Fujiyama Mama" in 1958, which
became a major success in Japan. Her version of "Let's Have a Party," which
Elvis had cut earlier, was a U.S. Top 40 pop hit for her in 1960, after which
she began calling her band the Party Timers. Jackson's popularity continued
through the end of the decade. Jackson toured regularly, was twice nominated for
a Grammy, and was a big attraction in Las Vegas from the mid-'50s into the '70s.
American country artists Pam Tillis, Jann Browne, and Rosie Flores have
acknowledged Jackson as a major influence. In 2009 Wanda was inducted into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, and Bruce
Springsteen were just a few of the high-profile artists that encouraged the Hall
to induct the Queen over the last few years.
Wanda Jackson is known as the "Pioneer of Rock 'n' Roll" and the
"First Lady of Rockabilly". Now, this collection brings together Wanda
Jackson's benchmark recordings as one of the few - and certainly the most
successful - women in the branch of early rock and roll known as rockabilly.
