Thread Name: Yodeling songs
Subject: RE: Yodeling songs
Well, but there were times when Elton Britt yodeled at 90 miles an hour and it was, in Bill's and my opinion at least, some of the best yodeling we've ever heard. Bill says the best yodelers he ever heard were two sisters in Minnesota who may never have made a record. For me, one of my favorite examples of yodeling was done by two hefty gray-haired women in dirndls, I think in Interlachen in 1968, on a song called (forgive the spelling) "Mein Glueck ist am Huetterl." I've looked for that song ever since. Their yodeling was not slow and mournful and possibly not sublime, but it was splendid.
