GUEST,Phil d'Conch Lets talk Jimmie Rodgers (32) RE: Lets talk Jimmie Rodgers 17 Jun 21

See here: Lyr Add: The Songs of Jack Neville for these and three others -

Lyr Req: Sweet Mama Hurry Home (Jimmie Rodgers)

Rodgers and Neville were typical Yank black-face vaudeville minstrels for their era. Anything goes. Ferera and Franchini (Hawaiian Serenaders) covered Old Black Joe and Suwannee River in medley with Vernon Dalhart on vocals. Have fun sorting that one by genre.

You'll also find quite a bit of Hawaiian influence in early Yank cowboy music. Kama & Salazar backed both Jimmie Rodgers and stand-in-replacement cousin Jesse Ro(d)gers on more than one Jack Neville tune, also recorded in the same San Antonio studio.

However, island yodel is more like Patsy Cline's warbled Blue lyric than the ol' Tyrolean 'yodel-ay-ee-hoo' interjection. The so-called blue-yodel somewhere in between methinks.
