“Cream Of The Crop” by Wanda Jackson - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1968Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

A step back in the right direction after a couple of poor efforts, the “cream of the crop” referring to the songwriters selected by Wanda herself for this 12 track affair. On the opener, her treatment of “Little Boy Soldier” (released as a 45 by Curly Puttman several months earlier) is fantastic, whilst her bluesy reading of “There Stands The Glass” (Blaine Smith, 1952) is the big highlight on side two.
