I like Wanda Jackson's version better.

Howdy said...

Wanda's is the definitive but this is the genesis. Until I acquired this a few years ago I never knew Wanda's was not the original.

Timmy said...

I second that, Howdy... Somehow, even though we all grew up with Wanda's, I can actually sense the originality of Annisteen's attempt. A WINNER!

Holly said...

Wow, I had NO idea this wasn't a Wanda original.

I'm with you, Howdy - Wanda's take rules but it's fantastic to hear this version. Thank you!

Holly said...

Blog synchronicity ... see


for another cool Annisteen Allen song!

Interesting contrast with the Wanda Jackson version. This is more soulful/blusey -- so I think the world (especially me) should have them BOTH.

Apparantley, Wanada and/or her people in the know knew enough to listen to black radio stations back then as so many other Top 40 hits came from that source.
