From my early 7 inch disc record collection this recording represents the first recording released by Eldridge Johnson, founder of The Victor Talking Machine Company. Recorded in November 1900 and assigned catalog number A-1, this is recording pioneer, George Broderick, reciting Eugene Field's poem, "Departure" on the short lived "Improved Record" label. The poem is a lament featuring a father's sorrowful parting words to his beloved son as the son is awaiting to depart on a train. I've often wondered why Eldridge Johnseon selected this poem as his first recording to be released for sale to the public. Perhaps at the time it was a very popular poem and seemed the perfect choice to present to the customer. In any case, I hope that you enjoy the recording and thanks, as always, for stopping in.
