The Elgar is a dub, I'm sure - though I'm not at home to check my copy - 
here's the recording info for it:

      B Royal Albert Hall Orchestra  -  Enigma Variations, Op. 36 ("Nimrod")
          Conductor - Sir Edward Elgar
        Engineer - Edward J. Pearse
        Producer - Fred Gaisberg
        Written-By - Elgar*


'Nimrod' recorded on 24 Feb 1920.
