Subject: [ARSCLIST] Columbia's first electrics


The earliest electrical recordings documented in the Columbia Master Book (Vol. 2) were made by Paul 
Specht on October 24, 1924, but nothing was issued. The next earliest electrical recordings (noted 
in the book) were made by Art Gillham on February 25, 1925: "You May Be Lonesome but You'll Be 
Lonesome Alone" (remake of 140125 take7) (328-D); "Second-Hand Love" (remake of 140274 take 3) 
(343-D); "Hesitation Blues" (140390-2) (343-D); two unissued takes of "Heart-Broken Strain" 
(140391); "I Had Someone Else Before I Had You" (140394-2) (328-D); and "How's Your Folks and My 
Folks" (140395-1) (387-D). As noted on page 19: "These sides were recorded electrically." Page 20 
notes that electrical recordings become more frequent afterwards. Volume 4 of the Master Book shows 
50013-D (Associated Glee Clubs of America) recorded March 31, 1925, after Gillham. As it turns out, 
Columbias 328-D, 343-D, and 50013-D were all issued in the June 1925 supplement. 387-D was issued in 
the August supplement. -Ryan
