Kalliope 1

Kalliope (Austria) / c. 1910

back next

Design: A very basic typographic layout, the catalogue number taking precedence, with no attempt at visual appeal.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "Even though it is very similar to the unidentified record from Germany, because of the Austrian artist and the Austrian music I would assign it to Austria. Recorded in 1909. Both sides of above record were also issued (bootleg?) on Melodia Record 20900 and 20910."

Thanks also for updated info to collector Walter Schwanzer of Austria, who notes that the recording appears in the Kalliope catalogue of 1910-1911.
