The Stars and Stripes Forever March, by John Philip Souza; and Rain, by Eugene Ford.
The Vulcan Cylinder Record Company is pleased to announce the release of two new cylinder records today, made in their modern, hard wearing, plastic resin material, and playable on all original 2-minute cylinder machines.
The Stars and Stripes Forever March has been available from Vulcan on Concert format for some time. Now the company has decided to make this popular title available to all those other collectors who don’t have Concert-size players. It is a tune that requires little introduction, especially in America where it is the official National March.
Vulcan Records would like to introduce the newest of their artistes – Mr Matt Tolentino. Matt is a very fine accordion player, and has his own band/orchestra to back him. This, the first of Matt’s recordings we will release, is a Eugene Ford piece called Rain. This is a very lovely foxtrot, with vocal refrain, and we think Matt’s rendition of it is very good.
