As with many tribute albums of a similar ilk, it would have been all too easy for a Wanda Jackson homage to be filled with retro-rockabilly outfits and unknown bar bands. The architects of Hard Headed Woman: A Celebration of Wanda Jackson stepped it up by assembling a roster leaning harder on the side of powerful women musicians. “Hot Dog, That Made Him Mad” starts the party, with Carolyn Mark & The Room-Mates providing the kind of feverish honky-tonk hillbilly punch that made Jackson’s '50s recordings sound so authentically tough. Kelly Hogan adds a nice contrast with the slow simmer of “Right or Wrong” before Neko Case heats up “Brown-Eyed Handsome Man” with her signature sultry sass. Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter import their smoky Americana to “Weary Blues from Waiting,” while Laura Cantrell adds heaps of tube-burning vintage amp tone to “Wasted.” A few good dudes also wrangle up solid covers, like Robbie Fulks’ rootsy rendition of “Tears at the Grand Ol’ Opry” and Wayne Hancock's sax-heavy, '60s frat-rock take on “Let’s Have a Party.”
