"The hills are alive with the ululations of centuries of yodelers, whose echoes persist undyingly. Bart Plantenga shows how yodeling, which may be encoded in our DNA, is humanity's most open secret, linking Swabian and Farsi, mountain and atoll, cowboy and jazzbo. Like an errant carnival ride, his book is fun, head-spinning, and ontologically profound.."-Luc Sante "How did an ancient Swiss mountain tradition evolve into an American country-music staple? That's only one of the questions Plantenga seeks to answer in his solid, exhaustive look at yodeling, a high-pitched ululation good for herding cows, marketing Tarzan, and inflicting Martian brain melt in a Tim Burton film. Moving beyond the kitsch factor, the author credits Jimmie Rodgers, the tubercular Singing Brakeman, for siring Nashville's infatuation with this Alpine cry; notes that real cowboys probably didn't yodel before Gene Autry; and tracks the warble as far as Bollywood and New Zealand. Grade: B."-Entertainment Weekly "For 150-year-old academic publisher Routledge, a major release is usually a heavy classroom tome. But this fall it found itself with an uncharacteristic hit: "Yodel-Ay-Ee-Oooo: The Secret History of Yodeling Around the World" ($20), by radio deejay Bart Plantenga, which has attracted an audience of hipsters that, says Marketing Director Frederic Nachbaur, has helped it sell more copies than many Routledge titles do in an entire run. The book traces the singing style to such unlikely places as Central Africa and Mexico, and dishes on its various adherents. "Everyone from Sly and the friggin' Family Stone, the Fugees, De La Soul . . . to even the Velvet Underground have used yodels,"Plantenga says. ."-Washington Post, Sunday, January 11 "Writing like the manic, gonzo son of Nick Tosches, Plantenga here crams into his text just about everything one would ever want to know and then some about yodeling and yodelers. A DJ and amateur musicologist, he intends to trace yodeling from its Swiss origins to the upper registers of country, funk, folk, and pop, among other genres. As a thoroughly entertaining, throttle-at-the-red-line ride through the history of the various discrete styles of yodeling, this book scores a ton of points. The bibliography is thorough, and the annotated listening lists are highly eclectic and full of insight. Highly recommended for all public libraries and for academic libraries with significant popular culture or world music collections ."-Library Journal Reviews, Nov. 2003, James E. Perone "Solid, exhaustive look at yodeling." Alanna Nash, Entertainment Weekly ."-Alanna Nash, Entertainment Weekly


Did a centuries-old, Swiss mountain tradition make its way into American country music? As this fascinating book reveals; yodeling is not just a Swiss thing - everyone from Central African pygmies, Nashville hunks-in-hats, avant-grade tonsil-twisters like Meredith Monk, hip-hop stars De La Soul, and pop stars like Jewel have been known to kick back and release a yodeling refrain. Along the way, we encounter a gallery of unique characters, ranging from the legendary, such as country singer Jimmie Rodgers, to the definitely different, including Mary Schneider 'the Australian Queen of Yodeling' who specialises in yodeling Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms, and the Topp Twins, a yodeling lesbian duo who employ the sound in their songs aimed at battling homophobia. The book is both a serious study of the history of yodeling around the world and a fun look at how this unique sound has worked its way into popular culture. Yodel-Ay-Ee-Ooo promises to be a classic for fans of music and popular culture.

The best (maybe the only?) book on the subject of yodeling! 15. Mai 2007
Von R. Horton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book is exhaustive, exhausting, and huge fun. The author, Bart P., has researched yodeling better than any human being in his right mind should, and that statement should tell you a lot about the author. His style is comprehensive, engaging, and humorous, always treating yodeling lovingly but never, _ever_ taking it too seriously.

If you are a yodeling fan you should have already stopped and ordered this book. If you are not one - go ahead and read it - it will turn you into one whether you like it or not.
