The 1st Victor electric Record ?

Post by Gmemg » Wed Aug 22, 2018 6:31 am

This is a 10" Zonophone record issued in England as Zono A 302 but it started life as Victor 35763 recorded 25th of Feb 1925 and it seems was the first Victor electrically recorded record made by the Western electric System - i must admit that it did strike me as being a strange record but when you know the above it makes sense as a sort of sampler record
Here's the contents

"Strut Miss Lizzie" piano Solo by Frank Banta
"Love's Old Sweet Song" Sterling Trio
"Monologue " Munro Silver
"When You And I Were Young Maggie" Henry Burr
"Casey Jones" by Billy Murrey
Side 2
"Sweet Genevieve" Sung by Campbell & burr
"Saxophobia" by Rdy Wiedoeft
"Gypsy Love Song" by frank Croxton
"take me Back to Old Virginny" by The Peerless Quartette
"massa's in de Cold Cold Ground" by a Chorus

Here's the recording
Estott : "An Ancient Half - Mad Uncle "

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
