Here is one Italian patriotic song from WW1 which was issued in the UK. A rare find in a local secondhand shop.

The other side is the Russian National Anthem "God bless our Czar" sung in English by the Cecilian Quartette. If only they knew......

A nice piece, still missing in my collection! What a lucky find!

There is a similar pressing (with a different B side) for sale on eBay right now, will try to win the auction. ;)

Another interesting WWI record is "The Makin's of the USA", promoting the tobacco drive for the troops.
Then there's one from the end of the war, "The Worst is Yet to Come", taunting the abdicated Kaiser...

Just a few from my collection:

Somewhere in France, dear Mother,
The rose of no-mans land,
When the war is over, Mother dear,
Break the news to Mother

The Moon Shines Bright On Charlie Chaplin

I've played When The Lusitania Went Down by Herbert Stuart a lot.

Dear Epigramophone, here is the period advertisement for your record "A Trieste" (followed by a list of other preminent artists and records that has nothing to do with it).

Many thanks for this Marco. I have printed a copy and filed it with the record.

Roger.

Unfortunately the sale went bad. I was the only bidder, but the seller replied that the copy of "A Trieste" was sold months ago and was relisted by mistake.

Oh, well. Let's console ourselves with a period cartoon. The cartoon was originally British and reported on Italian newspapers; the legend reads "NEW GERMAN WARFARE - Kaiser's soldiers make pass out an English sentinel compelling him to listen to... German music". ;)

Quite obviously the cartoon has to be put in perspective. At the time there was a vivid debate leaded by the Futurists, who affirmed that German culture was square, imitative and boring.
