iTunes Review

At 75, Wanda Jackson is the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. She played the mean and greasy stuff long before most rockers were even a notion in their parents' minds. While the Jack White–produced The Party Ain't Over brought Jackson the mainstream attention she's long deserved, the Justin Townes Earle production for Unfinished Business comes closer to what she usually serves up. The band is solid without overwhelming the singer. Her vocal power might not be what it used to be—just like Bob Dylan or Roger Daltrey can't quite reach their marks these days—but her phrasing and smarts are as playful as ever. She tears through The Valentinos' "It's All Over Now" with great joy. The Jeff Tweedy interpretation of Woody Guthrie's "California Stars" is sad and touching. Earle joins Jackson for the worthy country duet "Am I Ever a Memory?," and they touch on honky-tonk with "What Do You Do When You're Lonesome?" She still brings her best to everything she does, and just as Johnny Cash played out his legacy with class, Jackson intends to continue fighting the good fight until she can fight no more.

Worthy successor to ’The Party Ain’t Over'

This time the queen of Rockabilly teamed up with Justin Townes Earle (first time producer & son of Steve Earle) to add more authentic Country Rockabilly Blues Gospel Rock atmosphere to a mix of covers and originals, and it worked.

California Stars is by far my favorite track. I loved it instantly! Other tracks I favor are Graveyard Shift and What do you do when you're Lonesome, but they are all good. I love her sound.

Wanda Jackson was only halfway through high school when, in 1954, country singer Hank Thompson heard her on an Oklahoma City radio show and asked her to record with his band, the Brazos Valley Boys. By the end of the decade, Jackson had become one of America's first major female country and rockabilly singers. Jackson was born in Oklahoma, but her father Tom -- himself a country singer who quit because of the Depression -- moved the family to California in 1941. He bought Wanda her first guitar...
