Eddy Arnold - Cattle Call


Well this is no Slim Whitman, no one call quite yodel like him but here is a more tame and polished version of a song written by Tex Owens and done by Slim Whitman that i actually really dig... i know, why you ask? I have no fucking idea but i do....

The yodel melody on this record is stolen by Terry Allen for the intro to "Truckload of Art".
Tony Russell told me the yodelled melody originated in prewar Norway, but perhaps that was a wind-up.

Oh my God! The Tennessee Plowboy! Eddy Arnold! I love the hell out of this song. Always did. What an amazingly smooth voice. This guy was huge in his day - fame is fleeting, though. Check out Make the World Go Away. Great stuff.

Thanks for posting this. When I was a kid, my Dad would hum this as a lullaby. -- Mykal
