Greetings from FixitLand!

Have stumbled upon two Japanese Victors (52535 and 52536) on YouBoob, labeled as by "The Victor Orchestra of America conducted by N. Shilkret":

52535  Ginza no Yanagi (mx 4753)/Manshu Koshinkyoku (4754)
52536  Tokyo Koshinkyoku/Shin Gion Kouta [can't make out mx nos., looks like same session]

Nothing yet found in EDVR...they sound like US recordings, circa 1927-29 or so, though Japanese Victor matrix numbers appear on the labels. Anyone have specific data on these?
