Wanda Jackson/Gary Walker and the Rain

Goin' down the "Funnel of Love" with the queen of rockabilly Wanda Jackson. The song was recorded in '61, Wanda was discovered by Hank Johnson in '54 and transitioned into a country singer later in her career achieving decent success. She's also still touring at the age of 73. This track has became legendary in its own right- check out her singing during the opening of the song. Was diggin' through the archives earlier this week and came along this rad cover of the Classic IV's "Spooky" by Gary Walker and the Rain and have been listening to it quite a bit, so I'm throwing it in as a bonus. It's more psychedelic than the original, it contains some tripped-out special effects and a guitar solo. Yeah furls...
