>>> First acoustic version was recorded in NY, 5-23-1917, and issued on Vi 74533 (C-19783-3).Second acoustic is the "1923" one, recorded in Camden 5-5-1923 and issued on Vi 6232 (C-19783-10).
First electrics were recorded in New York 5-20-1926 and issued on Vi 6680 (CVE-19783-11-12; Victor issued both takes).I don't have all of the detail on your Circle 16250, but it was recorded for HMV in London on 1-30-1937.This would be the same recording used on the pea green 60 Years of Music set.
