I was really surprised to know that nobody uploaded this recording (except heavily filtered or cropped versions), so I'm going to fix this right now.
One of the Biggest Star in the history of Cinema, Rudolph Valentino (1895.5.6 ~ 1926.8.23), sings "Kashmir Love Song" and "El Relicario" for Brunswick in 1923.
This is the only surviving recording of Valentino's voice. Although there were some of private recordings of his voice in Polar Negri's record collection, the master recordings and test pressings were destroyed during the WW2.
But since his voice wasn't nice as much as his appearance, (Plus, his English/Spanish pronounciation was really horrible in these recordings), Brunswick didn't published this recording. It was privately issued after Valentino's death in 1926.
Since I DON'T have the original 78rpm disc,(You can download these recordings in Archive.org) I decided to make a slideshow video, consisted of photographs of Valentino which I have scanned (in the highest quality) from the original photograph prints.
