64. Blue Yodel No. 1 (aka T For Texas)
(Sequenced By Ron Tilden)

Jimmie Rodgers, aka "The Father Of Country Music" Originally Composed The Tune In 1927 With The Name ("T" For Texas)  It Was Retitled: "Blue Yodel No. 1" Upon's Its Release In Late 1927 And Sold A Million Copies Which Was Very Unusual For A Country Song At That Time!  
It Became Jimmie's Signature Song And One Of His Most Remembered Songs
Thanks To Ron Tilden For Taking The Time To Sequence It For Us!
This One Was A Tough One To Get.  I Had This Tune Requested For Nearly Three Years.  What Information I Had Found Is That It May Have Several Different Names And Possibly Several Different Versions.  Names I Had Found Where Jimmie Wrote Or Recorded It.  "T For Texas", Which Was Later Retitled Blue Yodel No. 1, Written In 1927 And Released In 1928.  My Later Research Found That He Had Written 13 Different Versions From 1928 Through 1933.  Other Versions Are As Follows:

Blue Yodel No. 2, aka "My Lovin' Gal Lucille" (Sequenced By Kenn Gordon) Written & Recorded In 1928
Blue Yodel No. 3, aka "Evening Sun Yodel" (Sequenced By Kenn Gordon) Written & Recorded In 1928
Blue Yodel No. 4, aka "California Blues" (Sequenced By Ron Tilden) Written & Recorded In 1929
Blue Yodel No. 4, aka "California Blues" (Sequenced By Kenn Gordon) Written & Recorded In 1929
Blue Yodel No. 5 Written & Recorded In 1929
[I Still NEED This One]
Blue Yodel No. 6, aka "Midnight Turning Day Blues" (Sequenced By Kenn Gordon) Written & Recorded In 1930
Blue Yodel No. 7, aka "Anniversary Blue Yodel", Written By Jimmie & Elsie McWilliams In 1930

(He Neither Wrote Or Recorded The Above Under The Title Of Blue Yodel No. 7)

[I Still NEED This One]
Blue Yodel No. 8,  (Sequenced By Ron Tilden) Penned By Jimmie In 1930-31 And Was Later Named "Mule Skinner Blues" Although Jimmie Never Wrote Or Recorded It Under That Name!
I Have It On Line Under
"Mule Skinner Blues" In "The Fendermens'" 1960's, Blues/Rock, Novelty Style, Sequenced By Gary Rogers.  As You Probably Know Dolly Parton Had A Big Hit With It Under That Title!

Blue Yodel No. 9, aka "Standin' On The Corner",  Apparently First Recorded By Jimmie On His Album:
"America's Blue Yodel" In 1931

Blue Yodel No. 10, aka "Ground Hog Rootin' In My Back Yard" Written & Recorded In 1932
Blue Yodel No. 11 Written & Recorded In 1933
Blue Yodel No. 12, aka "Barefoot Blues" Written & Recorded In 1933


Blue Yodel No. 13, aka "Jimmie Rodgers' Last Blue Yodel",  (Sequenced By Jim Hughes) , aka "Women Make A Fool Out Of Me" Written & Recorded As "Jimmie Rodgers' Last Blue Yodel" In Dec. 1933
(He Neither Wrote Or Recorded It Under The Title Of Blue Yodel No. 13 Although Some Of His Compilation Albums Show It Under That Title)
