Although this is one of the best songs ever written - by Queen or anyone, once I heard Bruce Dickinson singing this as a tribute to Freddy Mercury (Bruce is better known as singer from "Iron Maiden") I was spellbound. It is a more operatic version of it, with a soprana singing some of Freddie's lines, but some of the notes that Bruce hits, are amazing lol.
The late Rosalie Allen and Patsy Montana were America's reigning Yodeling Queens. Janet McBride's high-powered yodeling over the past five decades has left no doubt that she is indeed the Yodeling Queen. I met this fantastic person at the 1999 Avoca Festival. Both Janet and her husband, John Ingraham are also retired Deputy Sheriffs.
Sonny Rodgers Yodelers Paradise Show at the August 2000 Avoca Old Time Country Music Festival. This 3-hour show was one of Avoca's most popular attractions featuring Yodelers from around the world. In spite of week-long temperatures relentlessly hovering between 97 and 100 degrees, the performers gave it their all and the fans endured.
These excerpted clips represent some of the best performances. There are some audio glitches, of which I wasn't aware until I got home and watched the playbacks. Out of 10 film cassettes I shot, two of them suffered from this defect.
This would also be Sonny Rodgers last Avoca attendance. His cancer reappeared and the Good Lord called him home in July 2001.
