Wanda Jackson – Shakin All Over (Produced by Jack White) (2010)

Scroll down to content

Wanda Jackson, the effervescent, 72-year-old queen of rockabilly, was thinking she might like to make a duets album. After all, her champions include Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, all of whom encouraged her overdue election into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year. Her publicist knew a stylist who knew Jack White, but when connections were finally made, White declined the duets offer. However, the ambitious musician, famous as a member of the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and now the Dead Weather, said he’d love to record Jackson. Furthermore, he agreed to put out a single and album on his own Nashville-based label, Third Man Records. The first fruits of their labors — a double-sided single of Amy Winehouse’s sultry “You Know I’m No Good” and Johnny Kidd and the Pirates’ rambunctious “Shakin’ All Over” — arrived in January, digitally and on vinyl. A full album is expected in the fall. [Source]
