    Gid, the clown of the group, added a high falsetto, over Riley’s vocal lead. Other bands, notably [artist]Earl Johnson and His Dixie Entertainers[/artist], copied this technique. The high vocal (sung by [artist]Nettie Stoneman[/artist]) is also found in the [artist]Stoneman Family[/artist] recording of the 1920s.
