1-CD-Album DigiPac (4-plated) with 28-page booklet, 30 tracks, playing time 77:36 minutes.
- Another fabulous release in our new series, 'The Ballads Of'.
- For the first time, all of Wanda Jackson’s finest country ballads and torch songs on one CD.
- 30 exquisitely performed slow to mid-tempo ballads recorded between 1957 and 1962! Including The Tip Of My Fingers, In The Middle Of A Heartache and many other great ballads.
Although Wanda Jackson will always be best remembered for her fiery rockers of the 1950s, the truth is that Wanda Jackson started her career singing country music and, despite a brief flirtation with rockabilly, she made her living from country music for most of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s. This compilation draws tracks from her early mid-1950s recordings to her excellent country recordings of the early 1960s, focusing on Wanda Jackson’s ballad style.
These tracks are as great as they’re sadly overlooked, in fact the case can be made that if Wanda Jackson had never recorded her rocking tracks, she would have been known as one of the greatest country female singers, afforded the same respect as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton.
This collection includes her biggest hit, Right Or Wrong, and many other great recordings in the ballad style. Once again, Bear Family offers you something unique you won’t find anywhere else!
