Various artists - Hard Headed WomanWanda Jackson was a maverick, a fiercely independent woman who broke the music industry’s gender barrier in the ’50s, dated Elvis Presley and inspired Elvis Costello. This album features covers of songs written by and associated with the Queen of Rockabilly. Although male artists weigh in, the best tracks are by Kelly Hogan (a torchy “Right or Wrong”), Neko Case (a spirited “Brown Eyed Handsome Man”) and Candye Kane (a raunchy “Rock Your Baby”), who all sound like Jackson’s uncompromising soul sisters.
