If there’s on album we’re embarrassed to have omitted from our list of the 50 most important ones of 2011, it’s probably Wanda Jackson’s The Party Ain’t Over. Jack White both produced and plays guitar on the effort and if that isn’t enough to convince you, then check out the album stream over at NPR.org.
Also awesome is the newly unveiled music video for the album’s lead single/Bob Dylan cover, “Thunder on the Mountain” (via Spinner). Like the album, the clip features both Jackson and White, the latter of who looks pretty dapper with his pencil thin mustache and all pink dress shirt. He also rips it pretty hard on guitar. All and all, some really good stuff, and it should make you even more jealous when I tell you all of Jackson’s forthcoming tour dates with White and the Third Man House Band are soldout.
The Party Ain’t Over is available January 25th via Third Man Records.
