I have two. Elton Britt and Wilf Carter. I don't think either of them ever made a poor recording. Many others (including myself) are imperfect yodelers. They crack or strain.
'Though I have not heard her in years, I recall Carolina Cotton as the best among the females(I have to get her recordings).

Mary Schneider has been mentioned a couple of times so far. I have no idea who billed her as the Australian Yodeling Queen and am in no position to comment on whether the title is deserved but she is a formidable talent. She may not appeal to everyone but surely some folks will like what she does. She is well represented on youtube.

Clarinet Polka

Mockingbird Yodel

This is a different Mockingbird Yodel than is sung by Carolina Cotton and other country and western swing singers. A search on youtube for Mockingbird Yodel will turn up several fine Aussie yodelers including Angela Hayden and Dianna Corcoran. You can also find Wanda Jackson and the Cowboy Yodel.

I grew up with Yodelin' Slim Clark. Whilst untangling this thread I've been smiling as I recall his lyrics. Smiles~fantastic thread! Thanks for the many suggestions.
I often have the pleasure of hearing Manitoba's own Stu Clayton, most recently at an epilepsy fundraiser. Stu is a great traditional 'western' yodeler, and a fine gentleman. His daughter, Juanita Clayton, has taken up the habit, and is now an award-winning yodeler as well. Thanks again for the thread, Paul. Keep on yodelin'!

I think Rex Allen and Roy Rogers are the best yodelers. Two completely different techniques. Elton Britt's yodels, from what I've heard, are good, but I can do them, so they can't be *that* good. :D Hee hee! I yodel some, but my breaks aren't as clean as they should be, yet. I'm still practicing!

Greetings to all your yodeling fans. My favorite yodeler was "YODELING JIM DEMPSEY" up here in Canada. He yodeled all over Canada from the 30's to the 90's. I don't think HE recorded anything except for what is recorded in my memories. Please take my word for it HE was the best there was and the best there ever will be. That's because he is my DAD.Don Walser and Jim Whitman are both in my DAD's class. Thanks for your time. P.S. That's "YODELING JIM DEMPSEY" and he had a hell of a right and HIS left wasn't too bad either. DICK DEMPSEY

FRANK IFIELD

Frank Ifield these days lives in Australia (where he did most of his growing up) and still works in the business but no longer performing. If you want to know more about him check out www.frankifield.com

Back in the 50s he yodelled on a lot of his records and you might want to seek out "The Yodelling Cowboy Years" on the UK Jasmine label at www.jasmine-records.co.uk or the 3CD budget set "The Complete A & B Sides" on EMI Gold. The former is early Australian material with lots of actual yodelling, the latter presents his EMI UK recordings and some Nashville cuts from the 60s when he yodelled less but had one of the best voice-break voices in the business. He did a lot of amazing falsetto breaks on his records.

Frank was the first artiste to have 3 consecutive No 1 hits in the UK pop charts ("I Remember You", "Lovesick Blues" and "The Wayward Wind" in 1962) and gave the Beatles their first break outside Liverpool.

KEITH MANIFOLD

Keith Manifold was a country fan as well as a singer and he loved yodelling. He made several albums (vinyl) - mainly on the UK Westwood label and you can probably find some of them if you search www.gemm.com. He was a real gentleman and lived in Matlock Bath in Derbyshire, England.

YODELLERS ON RADIO

By the way, I am now presenting a 3 hour country show every 2 weeks on a Sunday from 6pm-9pm UK time. I am playing all types and styles of country music from the 20s to the modern day but the emphasis is on the more traditional sounds. I always try to include some yodellers as few stations seem to play them these days.

Next show is Sunday 6th March and you can find the show and listen live on www.uckfieldfm.co.uk. I have played a lot of yodellers including this thread's own seamus Kennedy!!

If you can listen I would welcome your comments and requests. Send to studio@uckfieldfm.co.uk

Best regards to all

PAUL

In England, there were really only two really great yodellers on the English country scene.

One of course was Frank Ifield. the other was the late Keith Manifold. Keith must have gigged every inch of England in the 1970's and eighties. he did well on the Hughie Greene version of opportunity knocks - only narrowly beaten by Lena Zavaroni. I think every cowboy in England voted for him.

Yodelling always sounded a bit weird to me. i did a gig one night in Oswestry with a bloke who yodelled Abide with Me as the climax of his act. he went down a storm. I sort of felt, which planet have I landed on now.

Goebel wrote Hobo's Lullaby which Guthrie recorded, so there may be some creditability there. Goebel's recording of the song has a couple of extra verses and yodelling as well but it doesn't seem to fit to my ear. In any case it's his song so who am I to judge!

Rod Erickson's singing shows one difference between Alpine and Western yodelling. Alpine has a lot more consonants.

In answer to several questions on here, no, Slim Whitman and Jim are not related!
Jim is originally from Downpatrick in Northern Ireland.

Hope this answers a few questions! I will try and check back here regularly so if there are any more questions fire away or as Jim would say "Shoot"!
