Yet I'm certain that I've seen a photo of a cylinder box with his name as performer- but don't ask where or when.Steve Smolian-----Original Message-----From: Association for Recorded Sound Discussion List [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Henri ChamouxSent: Tuesday, October 20, 2020 3:16 PMTo: [log in to unmask]: Re: [ARSCLIST] Dating a Pathe discGreetings from France,Correct number for this Carmen flower song by Alvarez is 1644, not 1664 nor 1640.Visible (and audible) here : http://www.phonobase.org/8909.htmlDate is hard to know with precision. The disc was probably issued in 1907-1908, but it is the transfer of a 1903 or 1904 cylinder.And here a visible (and audible) example of the cylinder issue of 1664 "Les boeufs" (Dupont) by the same Alvarezhttp://www.phonobase.org/1815.htmlBest regards,Henri CHAMOUXhttp://www.archeophone.org : the many adventures of the archeophonehttp://www.phonobase.org : 10 000 morceaux de cire, de gomme-laque, de celluloïd à écouter en lignehttp://phonobase.hypotheses.org : dernières nouvelles de la phonobaseLe 20/10/2020 à 19:57, Gary A. Galo a écrit :> Hi Everyone,>> I am trying to date a Pathe disc recording by Albert Alvarez, the Flower Song from Carmen. This recording was on an old LP produced by Henry Herrold in 1959, Herrold 5000, which also contained a bunch of Mapleson cylinders from Aida Favia-Artsay's collection. Aida gave a catalog number of 1664 for this record, but a recent reissue by Malibran says 1640. Malibran gives a date of 1905, but if 1640 is really the catalog number, a more likely date would seem to be 1903. I've checked various on-line references - DAHR, Kelly - without success, along with a private Alvarez CD sold on eBay, which gives 1640 as the catalog number and "1903 (?)" as the date.>> https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FRENCH-TENOR-ALBERT-ALVAREZ-1861-1933-CD-/293098186388>> 1664 is the catalog number of another recording, Les boeufs by Dupont, included on both the eBay CD and Malibran.>> Can anyone shed any light on the correct date and catalog number for this record?>> Thanks,> Gary>> Gary Galo> Audio Engineer Emeritus> The Crane School of Music> SUNY at Potsdam, NY 13676> .Henri CHAMOUXhttp://www.archeophone.org : les aventures de l'archéophone, lauréat du cristal cnrs 2017http://www.phonobase.org : 10 000 morceaux de cire, de gomme-laque, de celluloïd à écouter en lignehttp://phonobase.hypotheses.org : dernières nouvelles de la phonobase  -- École normale supérieure de LyonLARHRA - UMR 5190Pôle histoire numérique1 rue Maurice Arnoux92120 MontrougeTel : 06 64 80 00 [log in to unmask]://larhra.ish-lyon.cnrs.fr/membre/113
