    Video: Wanda Jackson, Jack White Perform on "Conan"; Jackson Has Kind Words for Elvis Presley

    Wanda Jackson celebrated yesterday's release of her new Jack White-produced album, The Party Ain't Over, on Third Man / Nonesuch Records, with a performance of the song "Funnel of Love" on Conan last night with White and The Third Man House Band. Or, as the Conan site teamcoco.com puts it, "Jackson kicked so much butt last night!"

    Following their performance, Jackson and White moved over to the couch to discuss the new album with Conan O'Brien, and for Jackson to share a few fond memories of her time touring with and, as White reminds us, dating Elvis Presley. Finally, O'Brien, while holding a copy of The Party Ain't Over on vinyl, exhorts his audience: "Get this. It's fantastic!" You can do just that by heading to the Nonesuch Store, where the album is available on vinyl and CD and includes high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.

    Wanda Jackson and the new album are the subject of a feature profile from the Associated Press. "Jackson played a pivotal but often overlooked role in the history of rock 'n' roll," writes the AP's Chris Talbott by way of background on the famed singer. "The diminutive dynamo's knives-out vocal delivery helped lay the groundwork for all the women of rock and launched a 50-plus year career that has taken her around the world several times."

    Jackson's next performance is another special one, this time for a hometown crowd in Oklahoma City. She and her band will give a free show at the University of Central Oklahoma's Academy of Contemporary Music this Friday.
