Footnotes

  • M.B-L comments: "'Red G & T’s' are the 'Penny Blacks' of early record collecting. Like Penny Black’s they vary from a few pounds each to one thousand pounds plus, depending on rarity and, critically, condition. The seven 10” Red G & T’s recorded by Caruso in 1903 in Milan for The Gramophone Company for the 'exorbitant' fee of £100.00 are famous as the records that made the gramophone a serious instrument. They are credited with making the initial fortune of The Gramophone Company."
