The Wanda Jackson profile-interview will be featured in my new book Yodel in HiFi. But here is a small hors d’oeuvre:
WJ: Some of the advice I give young singers if they ask if I have any tips these days these days and I say “Yeah, don’t forget your foreign fans cuz they’ll come when you’re gonna need them. ... I was just fortunate that they didn’t forget me and I started building on that In America for 10 or 15 years there just wasn’t much work for country singers. And that’s when I was invited to Scandinavia and did an album and they put a 3-week tour together. I had fans but I no idea I had that many fans in Europe. So I worked primarily Scandinavia and Europe from 85 to 95.
