Wanda Jackson, born and raised in Oklahoma, recorded a handful of country songs from june 1954 (when she was still only 16) to 1956. Then she moved to Los Angeles and adopted a different persona, a wild, rebel and sexy girl who could compete with the most lascivious rockers of the era. Her I Gotta Know (agosto 1956), Honey Bop (1956), Hot Dog, Fujiyama Mama (1958), Mean Mean Mean (1960), and Let's Have A Party (1960, recorded in 1958) are full of sexual innuendos and were sung in a manic euphoria. The albums, Wanda Jackson (Capitol, 1959), Rockin' With Wanda (Capitol, 1960) and There's A Party Going On (Capitol, 1961), summarized on Rockin' In The Country (Rhino), show a singer that was still maturing.

In 1961 she abandoned rock and roll and Los Angeles, and joined the ranks of Nashville's country singers (Right Or Wrong). Married with children, she continued recording country and gospel music throughout the 1970s.

Nata e cresciuta in Oklahoma, Wanda Jackson registra una manciata di canzoni country dal giugno 1954 (era appena sedicenne) al 1956. Quindi si trasferisce a Los Angeles e diventa una ragazza selvaggia, sexy e ribelle in grado di competere con i pi— lascivi rocker dell'epoca. I suoi I Gotta Know (agosto 1956), Honey Bop (1956), Hot Dog, Fujiyama Mama (1958), Mean Mean Mean (1960) e Let's Have A Party (1960, registrato nel 1958) sono zeppi di allusioni sessuali e cantati con maniacale euforia. Gli album Wanda Jackson (Capitol, 1959), Rockin' With Wanda (Capitol, 1960) e There's A Party Going On (Capitol, 1961), riassunti in Rockin' In The Country (Rhino), mostrano una cantante gi… matura. Nel 1961 abbandona Los Angeles e il rock and roll per entrare nei ranghi dei cantanti country di Nashville (Right Or Wrong). Si sposa e ha dei figli. Continua a incidere musica country e gospel per tutti gli anni '70.
