OK, these I will click w/ the sound up.
I only know about Wanda Jackson because I was channel surfing one day and I came across this documentary. It's weird how neat she was yet doesn't get nearly the attention of other artists of her time. I have this song and I think it's terrific.
I agree that she never got her due, but recent efforts aren't helping. Compared to the hillbilly rock stuff she pioneered the Jack White record stinks.She also did a bunch of country music in a poor-substitute-for-Skeeter-Davis vein.

For someone who seems to have mixed feelings about her work, that's some list!
It's slowly getting shorter.
Gotta be ruthless! That's my motto! Never liked Ruth anyway.
Jesus, that was absolute shite. Hope Jack White doesn't get his hands on Ronnie Spector next.
I kind of want to investigate how he records in order to understand how things can go so horribly wrong.
