Virtually every Ricky Nelson hit. Most of Patsy Cline's hits.

Don McLean's "Chain Lightning" LP features The Jords and they appeared on a BBC TV special with him in the late '70's, but the clips are not on Youtube.

Yes, a decent album. Just a shame that 'Ringo' can't sing!

During the first Columbia session around 1958 till early 60's Johnny Cash borrowed the Jord's several times. Although they're not always mentioned in the credits you can recognize their voices clearly.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe!

Just saw an amazing documentary. Will post. (This is a Kindle - no video.) The Jordanaires are prominent here.

Here you go (it's very long, and has her WHOLE, complex life - things I didn't know, but the music is key):

They backed Billy Ray Cyrus in 1993 on "When I'm Gone", as featured on his 2nd album "It Won't Be The Last". Purdy song sung in Elvis style.
