“...Cliff Carlisle was a Jimmy Rodgers devotee, but had an edgier yodeling style and his steel guitar work was excellent with a healthy nod to the then popular Hawaiian style. From the opening notes of 'Memphis Yodel' it's obvious Carlisle is more than just a Rodgers imitator. His accompaniment is especially note-worthy as lap style guitar isn't a particularly common solo accompanying instrumentäCarlisle comes across as a talented artist, who, while not a 'pop' artist like Gene Autry or as original as Rodgers, was a versatile energetic singer and a fine steel guitarist. This will appeal most to old timey and prewar blues fansätop marks for presentation (great essay and song notes by Mark A. Humphrey), sound and length.”

(Dave Harris — Real Blues)
