THE SWAN OF TUONELA-by Sibelius - Leopold Stokowski conducts, recorded in 1929 and here released about 1930 on RCA Victor's 'new' 12 inch 33 1/3 rpm Program Transcription record. This experiment with the 33 rpm format didn't work very well and only lasted a couple years. Had to wait until the late 1940s for technology was developed that allowed folks to economically play these in their homes. This is a pretty hard to find item. Won't see many of these anywhere. Enjoy!
