"Nobody likes good yodelin' but the folks and there's folks everywhere and I don't think there is anyone today that can top Wylie's yodelin' ability. There are several different yodelin' styles and ol' Wylie has got em all down pat. He'll give you some Jimmie Rodgers, Elton Britt, Slim Whitman, Hank Williams, Roy Rogers, and once in a while he'll get high enough to sound a little like Patsy Montana and Rosalie Allen. Total Yodel! is a collection of classic yodelin' songs and some real dandies that Wylie has written. If you like good singin'...good yodelin'...and good songs Total Yodel! is one more you need in your collection."

Yodeling ... something you just don't get to hear much of nowadays. A lost art that deserves to be resurrected and echoed far and loud. It was born somewhere in the Bavarian Alps and somehow ended up on American shores dressed up in the form of a Jimmie Rodgers verse-ending refrain, an Elton Britt stratospheric free-for-all, or a tearful Slim Whitman vocal break. It can be happy, it can be lonesome ... it's always soulful. On a cool autumn day in Nashville, the band and I holed up in a cozy studio and laid down an album's worth of the stuff that good ol' country & Western music is made of. Hope ya like it!
