----- I do think you may have it, albeit in a non-Italian pressing. It is
just one of Karl Reich's nightingale recordings from Bremen. And it is a
double-sided version, which confuses the issue.
Part 1 was recorded during the week ending 24 May 1913. The various single-
sided pressings may be called:
Germany: Schallplatte Grammophon 7-49252
England, Australia: Gramophone B390
- were there never VTMC pressings of this?
Part 2 was recorded in 1910 and published in England in June.
The various single-sided pressings may be called:
Most countries: Gramophone GC 49558
Russia: Gramophone GC 29305
Italy: GC7-252096 that Kelly mentions
Alas, it would appear that only the previous one, 7438r was issued by Victor:
Now comes the interesting question: would it only be correct according the
performance practice movement, if you really used the (no doubt German
pressing with) Italian numbering?
