“There’s A Party Goin’ On” by Wanda Jackson - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1961Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Released in January 1961. Another straight ahead rockabilly set from Wanda, solid if unspectacular. The LP is dominated by cover versions with “Lonely Weekends” (Charlie Rich, 1960), “Kansas City” (Little Willie Littlefield, 1952) and “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” (Buddy Holly, 1959) being amongst the most famous. Album highlight is her version of “Hard Headed Woman” (Elvis Presley with The Jordanaires, 1958) where she (with the help of her rocking band) gives her ex a run for his money. Next best is actually an original, “Tongue Tied”, which is in keeping with the high-energy good-time party feeling of the album.
