Thread Name: Who is your favourite yodeller?
Subject: RE: Who is your favourite yodeller?
Chic Murray was a nice, easy yodeller. His best known recording was the country classic "Satisfied Mind" which had a gentle, tyrolean style yodel in it. The recording was included on EMI UK's compilation "Yodelling Crazy" released around 1992 if I remember correctly.
The set might be worth checking out as it has recordings from US, Australia, UK, Germany, etc and ranges from 1990s back to 1920s. Do not confuse with a current budget collection with the same title that is currently doing the rounds. This on EMI UK but was also distributed by EMI Australia and EMI Europe.
Keep yodelin'....this is fascinating!
By the way, I agree that Bill Staines is / was great by why doesn't he do it on his recordings? I have several LPs / CDs and only about 3 or 4 with a yodel
