David Knight - 25th Jan 2011

A sizzling performance from the First Lady of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson and her new sidekick/producer Jack White of the Dylan song Thunder On The Mountain, smartly captured by thirtytwo - that's Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern - shot in a record pressing plant in Nashville.

Jack is bringing the legendary Wanda - one of rock 'n roll's original female performers, and one of rock's most extraordinary female voices ever - to a unsuspecting new audience, just as he did with Loretta Lynn a few years back. Wanda was quite something back in the day - and she's still quite something now, as Will and Dylan can attest.
"This was an absolute blast to make," they write. "We didn't have a lot of money at all, but with an amazing location and a performance as insanely good as this, we didn't need it. Wanda was incredible and put us to shame. We were knackered at the end of the day, but she kept going and going.
"We originally had another element to the video, but during the shoot (and then when we got into the edit) we saw how strong the performance was, and the chemistry between Jack and Wanda was so cool we decided it would be foolish to cut away from it."
