Just change the title
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The title of the CD should be changed to "Alpine Yodeling Songs". (Alpine - a little town in Texas about 200 miles west of Del Rio on Route 90).
How can you tell? Sure the references to saddles and such are a clue, but the real dead givaway is the dulcet quavering tones of the steel guitar.
Don't get me wrong, I too enjoy western yodeling. It just bothers me that the first 10 tracks are most definitely NOT from Switzerland or Germany no matter what the song titles might suggest.
There are three very well done instrumentals in the remaining 12 tracks, leaving only nine real "Yodeling Songs Of The Alps".
So, if you like to think of the glass as being half full, then you will no doubt enjoy those 12 as I do."
The Alps in Texas?
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you like authentic-sounding European Alpine yodeling, you will absolutely love half of this CD...the second half. It seems that the producers have slipped in 10 cuts of yodeling from below the Mason-Dixon line in these here United States. While I actually enjoy Western yodeling, it has no business being on a CD entitled "Yodeling Songs of the Alps". But the alpine yodeling you do get is marvelous! Have you heard good triple-tone yodeling lately? No? Then you really need to listen to these cuts. Most of the songs are sung in their native language with at least passable accents by their American artists. All the negativisms aside, I like this CD...but I always start at cut #11."
Dashed expectations

"It seemed not professional; lacked "duets" or female yodeling; included two schmaltzy numbers by a little girl, many of the songs were not "authentic" and several did not have yodeling at all such as "Roll Out the Barrel." Four or five songs out of 22 seemed appropriate to the title."
