Another Spin

The 78s conversion programme is proceeding satisfactorily, so I'd like to share another one with you. This is particularly for my American reader; a rendering of Sousa's Stars And Stripes For Ever by The Silver Stars Band under the baton of the English composer Albert W Ketèlbey.

As far as I can ascertain, it was released in about 1916 1915, and may have been linked to the Americans' entry into The Great War (although the flip side has a recording of Wagner's Under The Double Eagle march!).

As before, click on the image to download the file.
