Re the Stanley Kirkby side, I'm assuming that it was an imported recording.  Kirkby was an English singer and the master was issued on Oxford
and on a British Regal

Comrades-March/release/5782606(click: "more images")"Columbia Band", "Columbia Orchestra", "Columbia Quartette" were names of studio orchestras sometimes renamed as The Imperial Guards Band, The Burlington Orchestra or The Granville Quartette etc. Some of these recordings are listed herehttp://mgthomas.co.uk/Records/LabelPages/Phoenix.htmbeing re-released in the 1910's on British Columbia's subsidiary label Phoenix, who also used the X-prefix as control number covering the original Columbia mx numbers, like the 00095-1 for "Old Comrades".Seems like the 1914 US reissue, instead of using Columbia's original 00095 mx number, used the Phoenix control number as mx number. (The Phoenix label numbers had an O-prefix).Anyway, it's pretty sure that "Old Comrades" was an original US recording on Columbia - there are lot of other US recordings listed here with similar mx-numbers:http://www.musiktiteldb.de/Interpreten/1737.htmlall of the from 1900-1904.Question is if the recording was issued on Columbia or some other label before the reissue in 1914.KristjanOn 2016-08-09 21:33, zimrec at juno.com wrote:> Having turned up a copy of Columbia A1608, I am curious to know the > source of the master of Old Comrades March.
