While Cliff Carlisle is often mentioned in the same breath as Jimmie Rodgers (both men were
’blue’ yodelers), when it came to the type of material they recorded there were differences. Like
another early artist, Jimmie Davis, Carlisle was not averse to using risque material, songs that
Rodgers and his management would not have considered suitable. Thus, although Carlisle and
Rodgers both included railroad numbers, songs about gambling and drinking in their respective
repertoires, Carlisle was quite prepared to embrace songs with elements of sexual innuendo along
with humorous numbers despairing of marriage.
Cliff Carlisle’s recording career commenced in 1930 and he continued to record prolifically through
the ’30s, initially with Wilbur Ball and then later his brother Bill Carlisle. After the Second World
War he appeared and recorded with The Carlisles. This collection provides a comprehensive
overview of the first decade of his career, the recordings that inspired many of the steel guitar
players who followed.
