The DeZurik Sisters' 'Arizona Yodeler' may be heard on Various Artists 'American Yodeling 1911-1946'. As has been said above, it is an incredible performance. The CD is on the German Trikont label Trikont US-0246-2. It is a great CD, as is its companion on the same label 'Black and White Hillbilly Music'. The Arhoolie LP mentioned (Old Timey 128) is long out of print, but as indicated, the Dezurik's 'Birmingham Jail' is great. The album also has tracks by Dixon Bros, Blue Sky Boys, Delmores, Bailes Bros, Girls of the Golden West, Buchanan Brothers, Armstrong Twins, Webster Bros, and Johnny and Jack - it is well worth looking out for in secondhand shops. Unfortunately, Chris Strachwitz has made no move to reissue any of his fine Old Timey LP series on to CD, apart from some of the western swing.

Mountain tyme, I have seen the name spelled variously Dezurik and DeZurik - sometimes by the same source!
