Thread Name: Music History Question: Jimmie Rodgers
Subject: RE: Music History Question: Jimmie Rodgers
I have questions about Blues Yodel #1 or "T for Texas."
Did Rodgers play "T for Texas" for Peer on Aug. 4 when they were trying to figure out songs that Rodgers could record?
I assumed that Rodgers would have played it, since he considered it one of his better songs, and that Peer not wanting blues from a white hillbilly artist would have not been interested.
Peer stated that he came up with the Blue Yodel titles, and the Blue Yodeler nickname. When did and where did Rodgers acquire the nickname?
