American Yodeling

( Naar de Nederlandse vertaling.)

Today my blog is labeled American Yodeling, refering to a CD released by Trikont I have in my collection, that needs recording dates. Last weekend I was pointed to a rare film fragment from Johnny Cash and Louis Armstrong, part of the Johnny Cash TV Show. In this popular Johnny Cash TV Show, probably recorded in Nashville somewhere in October 1970 Johnny Cash meets an old and fragile Louis Armstrong. Johnny refers to a July 1930 recording Louis made with Jimmie Rodgers, the so-called Blue Yodeler, titled Blue Yodel No. 9. Johnny says, he loves to re-create this unique session and plays with Louis Let's give it to 'em in black and white as Louis suggests. They play, accordingly to Hans Westerberg, St. Louis Blues. Enjoy the fragment.

This historical fragment,of course, is important as it shows one of the last public performances of Louis Armstrong who died 6 July 1971. It was recorded as part of the Johnny Cash show no. 38 on the 10th of October 1970 ( accordingly to Hans Westerberg's 1981 Louis Armstrong Discography "Boy From New Orleans") and not the 28th of October as the film info says, as Louis played on the 29th of October in London at a Charity Concert. Of course it is well possible that the date of the 28th of October was the date the program was broadcasted. Food for historians !!

The record Johnny Cash refers to in the film was:

JIMMY RODGERS: Jimmy Rodgers g -vo, Louis Armstrong tp, Lil Hardin or * p.

Recorded in Los Angeles 16th of July 1930

BLUE YODEL NO. 9 (STANDIN" ON THE CORNER) - 54867-2

Released originally as Victor 23580

* It was unknown for a long time who might be the piano player. Hans Westerberg suggests that it can't be Lil Hardin (Lil Hardin married Louis Armstrong in 1924 and divorced him in 1931. She named herself during that period Lil Armstrong ), and that it could have been Earl Hines. Other suggestions mentioned are Harvey Brooks and L.Z. Cooper. The liner notes of the Retrieval CD Blue Yodelers ( RTR 79020) says that Jimmie Rodgers' own lyric sheet has been found that reads, written in Jimmy Rodgers' own handwriting: Recorded in Hollywood ( sic ) 7-16-30. Louis Armstrong, trumpet Lillian on piano.

There are but few CDs dedicated to this kind of music, labeled as American Yodeling. I talked about the great Retrieval CD Blue Yodelers, which contains recordings of Jimmie Rodgers, Emmet Miller and Roy Evans ( 1928 - 1936) and has good discographical information. The CD as showed above, American Yodeling ( 1911 - 1946) has not and that is a pity. Thanks to Phil O' Rourke from Australia most info could be found. You can read it in the commend below this blog. Some tracks still need info:

1. Yodeling Mountaineer Mainer, J.E.'s Mountaineers 2:50
17. My Swiss Moonlight Lullaby Carter, Wilf (Montana Slim) 3:08
18. Mule Skinner Blues Monroe, Bill & His Bluegrass Boys 2:43
26. Sleep, Baby, Sleep Watson, George P

For me it is very imporant to have at least the tune title, the band name and, very important, the recording dates.

Can someone help me to find that information? That would be great !! Thanks Phil for your info !!

It seems tat Columbia will release two DVDs containing 58 Johnny Cash shows from the late 1960s - early 1970s, which will contain this fragment too.

Nederlands ( To the English translation )

Vandaag is mijn blog gewijd aan American Yodeling, denkend aan een schitterende CD die onlangs door Trikont is uitgebracht en waarvan ik de opnamedata mis. Afgelopen weekend werd ik gewezen op een zeldzaam filmfragment van Johnny Cash met Louis Armstrong, genomen uit één van de Johnny Cash TV Shows. In de populaire Johnny Cash TV Show, waarschijnlijk uit oktober 1970, ontmoet Johnny Cash een oude en breekbare Louis Armstrong. Johnny wijst Louis op een opname, die in juli 1930 gemaakt is waarin Louis Armstrong samen met Jimmy Rodgers, the Blue Yodeler, heeft gespeeld, getiteld Blue Yodel No. 9. Johnny zegt dat hij dit moment samen met Louis nog eens over zou willen doen en samen spelen ze de St. Louis Blues ( volgens Hans Westerberg) Hier is het fragment.

Dit fragment is historisch interessant, omdat het één van Louis laatste publieke optredens was. Hij stierf op 6 juli 1971. Het fragment komt uit de Johnny Cash show no. 38 en werd gemaakt op 10 oktober 1970 ( volgens de Hans Westerberg's Louis Armstrong Discography uit 1981 'Boy From New Orleans") en niet op 28 oktober, zoals de info van de film zegt, aangezien Louis een dag later in London is voor een Charity Concert. Wel is het natuurlijk mogelijk dat met 28 oktober 1970 de uitzenddatum bedoeld is. Voer voor historici .....

De opname waar naar Johnny Cash verwijst in de film is:

JIMMY RODGERS: Jimmy Rodhers g -vo, Louis Armstrong tp, Lil Hardin or * p.

Opgenomen in Los Angeles 16 juli 1930

BLUE YODEL NO. 9 (STANDIN" ON THE CORNER) - 54867-2

Origineel uitgebracht op Victor 23580

* Lange tijd was het gissen naar de pianospeler. Hans Westerberg suggereerde dat het Lil Hardin niet kon zijn (Lil Hardin trouwde met Louis in 1924 en scheidde in 1931 en noemde zich in die periode vaak Lil Armstrong) en dat Earl Hines meer voor de hand lag. Andere suggesties zijn Harvey Brooks en L.Z. Cooper. De informatie bij de Retrieval CD Blue Yodelers ( RTR 79020) zegt, dat de originele songtekst van Jimmy Rodgers gevonden is, waarin hij in eigen handschrift geschreven heeft Recorded in Hollywood (sic) 7-16-30. Louis Armstrong, trumpet Lillian on piano. ( = Opgenomen in Hollywood 16 - 7 - 1930. Louis Armstrong trompet, Lillian op de piano ) Er zijn maar weinig heruitgaven die dit soort muziek, genaamd American Yodeling, hebben uitgebracht. Ik had het al over de schitterende CD van Retrieval Blue Yodelers, die nummers van Jimmie Rodgers, Emmet Miller en Roy Evans bevat ( 1928 - 1936) en die uitgebreide discografische informatie bevat. De CD, zoals hierboven afgebeeld, American Yodeling ( 1911 - 1946) heeft dat niet en dat is jammer. Thanks to Phil O' Rourke from Australia most info could be found. You can read it in the commend below this blog. Some tracks still need info:

1. Yodeling Mountaineer Mainer, J.E.'s Mountaineers 2:50
17. My Swiss Moonlight Lullaby Carter, Wilf (Montana Slim) 3:08
18. Mule Skinner Blues Monroe, Bill & His Bluegrass Boys 2:43
26. Sleep, Baby, Sleep Watson, George P

For me it is very imporant to have at least the tune title, the band name and, very important, the recording dates.

Can someone help me to find that information? That would be great !! Thanks Phil for your info !!

Columbia zal half september 2007 een dubbel DVD uitbrengen met daarop 58 afleveringen van Johnny Cash TV shows uit eind jaren zestig - begin jaren zeventig. hierop komt ook dit fragment voor.
