Speaking of the King, rockabilly mama Janis Martin was touted as “the female Elvis” while coming up in the late ’50s recording with Chet Atkins, Bob Moore and Floyd Cramer. In addition to the Bear Family collection it looks like there is another (fairly) new compilation out entitled Cracker Jack. Wanda Jackson/Sparkle Moore fans take note.
