I wonder where you read that. No, Vermin Dogfart's * Wreck of the Old 97 is acoustically recorded.

* Joe Bussard's name for Vernon Dalhart.

This is the information I copied:

VICTOR #19427 – 1924. The lowest number to bear an electric recording, even if retroactively. Originally issued as acoustic, later pressings are electric. And electric copies are found with Batwing labels.

Can't find it now in my History files ..

From Amazon.com:


The single that BEGAN the Country Music Industry. This record was such a big hit (7 million copies sold)
that record companies began looking for "Hillbilly" acts to sign and the result of the search was the discovery
of Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family etc. This is easily one of the most important singles ever released. Very good songs even today.

I found that information on the FaceBook forum:
78 RPM Orthophonic Records.

I have also read from a different source that it was actually Fred Hall and Arthur Fields that began the "country" music industry when they went from jazz to, well, what we now call "country", although that was around 1929-30- certainly later than the record being discussed here.

^ I think The Carter Family having already recorded by then would lay waste to that claim. Ralph Peer's Bristol recording trip in 1927. Jimmie Rodgers was also recorded in '27.

The Carters are usually considered the true first country act that gained widespread popularity.
