Recorded well over a decade after Kenny Roberts' big 1949 hit "I Never See Maggie Alone," Indian Love Call includes a remake of that song as well as a re-recording of "She Taught Me How to Yodel," which Roberts had recorded for Coral in 1953. Roberts' impressive yodeling is featured on a few tracks, and his cover of "Indian Love Call" is a fitting choice given his superficial similarities to Slim Whitman. The production on these recordings is denser than that on his hits, and the material is split between yodels, novelties, and weepers. Indian Love Call is a fine album and a perfect companion to Bear Family's Jumpin' & Yodelin', which contains most of Roberts' hits.
