#1 - Enrico Caruso - Vesti La Giubba

Per my 24 Feb 2015 e-mail, this was also selected for Grammy Hall of Fame in1975. Their website shows this as being a single, not an album as you are saying.

#1 - Enrico Caruso- Vesti la Giubba

This recording was also selected for Grammy Hall of Fame in 1975. Google Grammy Hall of Fame. Items are alphabetical. This is under "L" for Leoncavello-Vesti la Giubba.

No Grammy Hall of Fame classical albums have been added because of the confusion between composer and performer. In this case there is a good argument to add the album under Enrico Caruso

We'll review

Enrico Caruso-Double Listing

Vesti la Giubba(#2 and #12) are the same recording. I believe this samerecording was also elected to the "Hall of Fame" in 1975 under the name Leoncavallo-Vesti la Giubba.

Data changed, thanks

I Wish I Had A Girl

When I lived with my grandparents as a teenager, they told me of many beautiful songs from their youth. They were both 24 years old in 1907. He sang many of them and one in particular was "Gee, I Wish That I Had A Girl Like The Other Fellows Have" I found the sheet music for this many years later after they had both died. It's a nice song with a very pretty melody.

Should it not be on your list for 1907? Wasn't it a hit?

Thank you for posting all these songs from my grandparents' youth.

Many pretty melodies.

The song "I Wish I Had A Girl" was a hit for Billy Murray, Harry Tally and Manuel Romain in 1909.

As we've mentioned elsewhere there are very few charts from before 1920 so we're sure lots of good songs are missing from our lists.
