Boy do I love yodeling. I especially love yodeling in blues. But I like yodeling in country too, and I like Bing Crosby's yodel. And Sly Stone's.

Oh yeah, also:

Check out also Leon Thomas kind of African/free jazz yodelling. But also Swiss yodelling - the music on the opening credits of Werner Herzog's "Herz aus Glas" fr'instance - very slow and atmospheric yodelling

Search:
"Arizona Yodeler" - the DeZurik Sisters
"Not The Heart" - 'Champion' Doug Veitch (also Mr. Veitch's yodelicious contribution to the Mad Professor's "Dub Me Crazy Pt 5")
"Lovesick Blues" - Emmett Miller

Anything Tarzan-related.

oh MAN, the way emmett miller slips in and out of his yodel!

so there are yodels proper, as in "yo-da-lay-hee-oo", and times when you sing the lyrics but make them into a yodel, as in "i've got the lovesick bloo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oos."

try singing along to a yodel some time, you will see how difficult it is to do a clear, strong, and melodically coherent yodel.

skip james has a really beautiful yodel.

i'm sure i started a yodel thread a while ago... actually it's more likely that i completely derailed an entirely more sensible thread with matter yodel-related.

thanks for some perspective, jazzbo. the emmett miller "lovesick blues" is miraculous, however.
then there's this book...Yodel-Ay-Ee-Oooo: The Secret History of Yodeling Around the World by: Bart Plantenga. Haven't read it but the author went to my college and I think he is/was a DJ at WFMU.

This is a pretty good record, if not one to listen to from end to end: http://www.trikont.com/catalogue/246_american_yodeling/246_american_yodeling.html

Of all the contents, it was the DeZurik Sisters which amazed me the most.

Check out Wilf Carter.
And "All Of Those Dirty Swine" by The Lonesome Organist is a
yodellin' charmer.

Also Wylie Gustafson

yeah, that "American Yodeling" comp is great. I fall apart every time I hear the "Yodeling Mule".

be sure to check out Patsy Montana as well. That's some great yodelling country.

I own a double album released by the Swiss state radio--metric tons of solo and group yodels, including some high wire SPEED yodelling. One track features a yodelling choir some 4,000 strong(what would Jose Maceda have done with a Polyneisan choir that size?). Also had an awesome solo yodel/alphorn album, recorded on location in the Glarnerland region...stolen from friend's car along with my Marantz portable tape deck...

The Hollerin' CD is pretty amazing. Touch will release recordings of drag strip races and my deceased relatives, but not field hollers.

one would be remiss to not mention to Sly Stone's Spaced Cowboy, a finer example of Afro-Funk yodelling you will not find, with an honorable mention going to that Lee Perry track with yodeling from an album whose name escapes me at the moment.
Also the ecstatic yodeling of Tim Buckley on the title track of Starsailor is quite a wonderful thing to behold.

The first Dylan album has a song, "Freight Train Blues", which sure sounds a lot like yodeling to me. Either that, or someone's interfering with him while he gamely tries to sing. Anyone know the one?

David A. (Davant), Friday, 4 June 2004 16:48 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

yes. but bob dylan is doing a distinctly unimpressive imitation of roy acuff there.

Howlin' Wolf yodels well.

James "Super Chikan" Johnson has a great song about yodelling on his Fat Possum album What You See: "Big Boy Now"

Frankie Ifield's "I Remember You" does it for me every time.

Well, whaddyaknow, I just learned something. Was Bob a huge fan, or was it a whim? And in his defence, he was, what, about 20, 21 when he recorded that.

Timbo borrows rather wholesale from Leon Thomas on that album. Does anyone actually know what the music on the opening credits of Werner Herzog's "Herz aus Glas" is and where I met find it? It is a yodelling choir now I come to think of it.

Jimmie Rodgers was indeed a great yodeller.

Ronnie Ronalde, while best known for his wonderful whistling, was a not-bad-at-all yodeller, too.

Okay Amst, I ordered Hollerin'. I honestly foresee a possible period of absurd yodelling fascination in my near future.

Slim Whitman's yodeling never fails to transport me to another planet. the cosmic yodel.

Jimmie Rodgers is the man for the more down-home style.
