I have seen this comment a few times (regarding the "first"), but of

cylinders (2" by 4") were regularly supplied from May  of 1889, and could be 
played, quite successfully, on Class M phonographs.

"Yet  sound historians say the cylinders were the first entertainment 
records ever  made, and the young girls hired to recite the rhymes were the
