Wanda Jackson's "Thunder on the Mountain"

If this Dylan cover doesn't knock your socks off - you're either barefoot already, or wearing shoes too tight for dancing...

For those of you unaware of the frantic medium delivering this message: Wanda Jackson was the first woman to break into the rock n' roll scene back in the 50's.

Dubbed "The Queen of Rockabilly" Jackson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year and has since been up to some shenanigans with little Jack White.

She's got a new collection of songs slated for release next week, and if this single is any indication of what's to come, despite - or because of - her 70-odd years: we've got a party going down.

Thunder on the mountain indeed.
