Editorial Reviews

Review

Yodel in Hi-Fi: From Kitsch Folk to Modern Electronica offers an amazing amount of new insights and knowledge.”
“A triumph of cheeky erudition that demonstrates beyond any doubt the international ubiquity of goofy yet profound chest-to-head vocal acrobatics in a legion of longstanding, continuously evolving musical styles. Bart Plantenga is an original thinker and a truly gifted writer blessed with vision, wit, and passion.”—James P. Leary, author of Polkabilly and Yodeling in Dairyland

“Bart Plantenga has, with Yodel in Hi-Fi, added enormously to his groundbreaking work begun with his earlier book Yodel-Ay-Ee Oooo. The history, musicology, and anthropology of yodeling—from indigenous people all over the planet to film stars like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers—is covered in astonishing breadth and depth.”—Douglas B. Green, yodeler with Riders in the Sky --—Rene van Peer, world music journalist.

Format: Paperback
I've been a fan of yodeling for many years now and, even more so, a fan of understanding what makes yodeling so appealing (to some of us). Bart Plantenga has the answers. In his first book "Yodel-Ay-Ee-Oooo! he covered just about anything you needed to know about yodeling...or, at least I thought he did. In this book, "Yodel in Hi-fi" Bart delves even deeper into the phenomenon of yodeling. Covering yodeling and yodelers through the years, you get insight into why we yodel as well as identification of many yodelers from the beginning to today. The best aspect of this book is Bart's identifying contemporary yodelers who you can hear today. There are many if you care to look. And, they are terrific.
if you are a fan of yodeling, or if your are deeply interested in music history in general, you will love this book. If you don't have time to read through a lot of plodding detail about yodeling, history, people, you might want to pass on this one. This is not a book about how to yodel. It is a book about why we yodel, when we yodel, who yodels, who listens to yodels, why we listen, why we care about it.
For some reason, I care deeply about yodeling and this book is terrific. If, for nothing more than identifying a mulitude of yodelers that you may otherwise never have heard of.
Highly recommended.
