Title: Novel (Novelette?) - Romance (Note: Translation by Google)
Artist: L. Siberyakov
Label & Number: Rebikov 620
Defects: Two small pits near the beginning, light surface rubs and a few scratches
Condition (1 to 10 scale): 7
Comments: This is a most unusual record. It is single face, but the entire reverse is covered with an ornamental label. The previous owner has included a note which bears repeating: "The Rebikov company was based in St. Petersburg and existed from 1902 to 1904. It was the first strictly Russian company to produce disc phonograph records. A number of important artists recorded for Rebikov, including Chaliapin and Vyaltseva. Like the earliest Pathe discs, the pressing bears a large label that covers the entire back of the record." A collector friend viewed this record and promptly pronounced it to be "the Russian equal to an early Victor Monarch." Of all the other collectors I've shown this record to, none of them have ever seen anything like it. Bid accordingly.
