Volume 2 contains 17 more sides released in 1912 and 1913. In addition there are three recordings from the ‘Stella Kontsert Rekord’ company of a very good band that recorded copies of the Belf Orchestra’s Syrena records. These records are even rarer than the Syrena disks and they were not even known to until recently.
