Arrival/Departure Of American Troops In France - Columbia 77249
Arrival Of American Troops In France - Columbia 77249
Departure Of American Troops In France - Columbia 77248
Now I don't Understand this disc at all!!.. I'ts called "DISCRIPTIVE" on the label. thinking (before treansfering) it was the "real" thing. I was kind of interested.. as it must have originated at the start of the "great War"
What it turns out to be is a bit of Propaganda aimed at allying the fears of all those at home.. Could this be the first real war propaganda to be recorded?
Dont Expect a sonic masterpiece! Ive have found (in a antuique store) some very cheap Pre Electric discs with some mighy nice labels. (this one is boring though)
and of course these must have been played to death (Gawd knows why!!)
Thanks goes to Luis for the below Info!
It was labelled as Peerless Quartet (as Prince's Band and Columbia Male Quartet), USA catalog number A-2354 (same matrix numbers as yours) and was recorded august 10, 1917 (Departure) and august 11, 1917 (Arrival)
