Jackson’s 31st studio album and marks the producing debut of fellow renowned musician and songwriter Justin Townes Earle. . Jack White declared “Wanda is influential to every modern female singer, whether they know about her or not. She broke down those walls in the beginning, when it was the hardest to do.” Widely known and respected as “The Queen of Rockabilly,” Jackson is credited with being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll song,(“Let’s Have a Party” in 1958).
TIM O’BRIEN & DARRELL SCOTT
We’re Usually A Lot Better Than This (Full Light)
This recording is from two different years (2005, 2006) at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC when Tim & Darrell did two benefit concerts for the Arthur Morgan Schoolwhere they each had a child attending. They had not been touring together for a number of years when they did the shows. The idea was to raise some funds for this amazing junior high school with the student body & teachers also in attendance. The result is a glimpse into the friendship and collaborative spirit of two of the most celebrated songwriters and Americana artists.
