Rock n'Roll's First Lady Gets Her Due
30 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wanda Jackson is a legendary country singer who is now most widely famous for her somewhat brief career as the first woman to record rock n'roll music during the mid and late 1950's. These records, while only modestly successful at the time, have given her an international cult following for decades, a following that amazing has grown larger with every new decade so much so that for the past 25 years Wanda has almost exclusively performed as a "rockabilly" artist to enthusiastic crowds around the world. Some of her famous fans include Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello, both of whom are interviewed for this documentary on her life and career. Wanda started out as a teenage country-and-western local radio singer in the early 1950's gradually growing to become fairly well-known but when newcomer Elvis Presley started performing on the country music scene he strongly encouraged her to join him and several other southern youngsters in singing a new genre of music, rock-and-roll. After first reluctant, Wanda jumped in with gusto before long and recorded a sizzling series of records for the Capitol label that still hold every bit of their impact over a half century later. Wanda and her husband-manager are interviewed (there's an amusing story on how they met, he was dating her best friend country star Norma Jean and Norma asked Wanda to "look after" Wendell while she was away in Nashville) as are her children and several fans, including people in the industry. This documentary ends with a fairly strong campaign to get Wanda in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which happily happened not that long after the film's release in 2008.
