Notes and Editorial Reviews

Unlike Ivar Andresen's electric recordings which are well known among collectors his early acoustic recordings made in Sweden and Denmark are rarities. At that time he was singing exclusively in Stockholm. Andresen's recording debut took place in January 1921 for "His Master's Voice" which in Scandinavia recorded under the label "Concert Record Gramophone". After two more titles in September 1922, the singer switched to Nordiska Polyphon, a subsidiary of Deutsche Grammophon. Between March 1923 and May 1924, 36 titles were recorded and issued on 18 double sided records. In May 1925, he recorded two more titles for HMV which amounts to a total of 42 acoustic titles. In November, 1926, Andresen stood in front of the microphone for the first Read more time to record for the Lindstrom Company. The result was four titles sung in German which are included in this compilation. Read less
