The Best of the Classic Capitol Singles is a2013 collection from the Queen of Rockabilly, Wanda Jackson. Idolized by three generations of rockers, from Las Vegas to Stockholm, Wanda Jackson has never worn her crown as to the attitude born.

Debuting on Country radio when she was still too young to drive, she would enter middle-age singing joyfully for the Lord. But in between, she would meet Elvis Presley and record her legendary Capitol singles, some of them fueled by rock 'n' roll nitroglycerin.

Yet, to hear this selection now is to also marvel at how wildly Wanda veered from style to style, as if the gorgeous, spaghetti-strapped Oklahoma rockabilly queen cared no more for the confines of genre than she did for a respectable neckline. She tore through songs that Elvis sang, The Cadillacs sang, Betty Hutton sang. She drew from jazz greats, R&B legends, and writers revered in the Nashville song factories.
