The majority of the 21 acts contributing to this fine tribute album are young folk who've obviously been affected by Jackson's music, attitude, and style. The Ranch Girls lend an old-timey roadhouse feel to the cute "If You Don't Somebody Else Will," which features some fine mandolin playing. Rosie Flores delivers a flawless rendition of Jackson's "In the Middle of a Heartache," a song about being torn between two lovers. Kelly Hogan sings another Jackson original, the romantic stand-by-your-man tune "Right or Wrong." These are all bang-up numbers that hark back to the traditional torch songs of the '40s and '50s, but with a country accent that places them in the small rural honky-tonks where Wanda Jackson first bowled over audiences.
