About: Leslie Stuart

Turtle Talk:
"Selection of Leslie Stuart's Songs" is a His Master's Voice recording maufactured by The Gramophone Co., Ltd., Hayes, Middlesex, England in the 1920's, probably the late 1920's. Lieutenant Robert George Evans directed The Band of the Coldstream Guards from 1920 to 1930. This is a 12 inch 78 rpm record with Stuart selections on both sides. It was probably recorded with microphones rather than recording horns.

The record label does not identify names of the individual selections and sadly Turtle is not familiar with the works of Leslie Stuart. Thanks to three Friend's of the Jukebox, all selections have been idetified.

Tech Tidbits:
