Thread Name: What's an easy yodeling cowboy song?
Subject: RE: What's an easy yodeling cowboy song?
On the subject of yodeling, I would like to draw attention to a marvellous CD on the German label Tikont. It is called 'American Yodeling 1911-1946'. It covers the whole range of American yodeling - the Mainers, Patsy Montana, Roy Rogers, Emmett Miller, Monroe, Carlisle etc - it even has Tampa Red! My favourite is the DeZurich Sisters' glorious 'Arizona yodeler' - wonderful, but not simple. There's an informative essay (in English and German) by Christopher Wagner titled 'Yodeling in America'. I seem to recall that this was reprinted in Folk Roots.
