Subject: RE: The Cackle (DeZurick) Sisters yodeling
If anyone wants recordings of Caroline and Mary Jane DeZurik aka the Cackle Sisters, let me recommend you a better, higher-quality source. Write:

Joe Bussard, 6610 Cherry Hill Drive, Frederick, MD 21701

and ask for his catalog of this group. Joe has the DeZuriks' issued recordings, plus at least one set of radio transcription recordings.

The DeZuriks chose a great trademark gimmick with their chicken-cluck yodeling (nobody else does anything like it), were great 30s harmony singers and radio stars, and deserve to be better known. Check out their "I Left Her Standing There," a Carson Robison song that shows their winning style and pert harmonies.
