Wanda Jackson: The Ballads of Wanda Jackson

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!

Capitol 5789 - master 54142-7

Although Wanda Jackson was a star in Germany with songs she'd learned phonetically and didn't understand, she was nearly invisible at home, singing songs she understood all too well. Most of her showdates were in Reno and Vegas lounges, together with some seasonal fair dates. Once or twice a year, she'd go to Nashville to meet her A&R man, Ken Nelson. She had been under contract to Capitol since 1956, but she'd placed just two records in the Country Top 10 and three in the pop Top 40. Pressure from Capitol's European parent might have been the only reason she was still on the label. Tears Will Be The Chaser For Your Wine was recorded in April 1966, and released at year's end. It featured both steel guitar and Dobro.

Two steel guitarists, Lloyd Green and Weldon Myrick, were listed on the session, so Myrick probably played the Dobro. Tears Will Be the Chaser was a song Wanda had found back home in Oklahoma. The cowriter, Dale Davis (aka Dale Siegenthaler), had kicked around the music scene since the late 1950s, briefly owning and recording for Stardale Records, a label that once had rockabilly freaks digging deep in their pockets. (Stardale was one of those labels that assigned different catalog numbers to the A & B sides of its records, just to ensure no one ordered them). Later, Davis wrote Marvin Rainwater's late-blooming Scandinavian hit, Henryetta Oklahoma. No one could handle these heartbreak songs better than Wanda. Her wounded small-town-girl innocence, offset by an ever-so-slightly sluttish voice, was a beguiling combo that should have made her a bigger star. As she saw Tammy Wynette rising fast, Wanda could have been excused for thinking it should have been her.
