Tonight i was revisiting my Gondoliers HMV set of 1919, and thru the website of Gilbert and Sullivan discography (http://gasdisc.oakapplepress.com) I noted down which of the matrices my set has. This set must have been very popular, for several sides were remade as late as 1923. My set has this late mx for side 15 (take a pair of sparkling eyes) by Tudor Davies, with orchestra conducted by Byng (Cc2690-III).
Besides that, all the records in my set have double letter pressing numbers, being GR the earlier (12th repressing, for side 3, We're called gondolieri, with the earlier mx Ho3779af) and not less than AD the latest (40th repressing for side 16, here we are at the risk of our lives, mx Ho3883af).
The labels on my set are all the 1925 style with golden corners, but the illustration on the cover is said to be the earlier one. Very interesting...

I've loved Gilbert and Sullivan operettas since about 1971. You seldom hear about them though even in the antique phonograph and record hobby. I don't have anything that old though. I saw a great production of The Gondoliers at the San Diego Comic Opera about 15 years ago, but alas, changing tastes sent that fine outfit into bankruptcy. I'd like to see some pics of your records. Did they come in an early album?
