Ben Selvin & his Orchestra - Dardanella - 1919

The very first million-selling dance record, Dardanella - played by Ben Selvin and his Novelty Orchestra. Recorded in New York on 20 November 1919.

The original US-release was on the Victor label, but this particular record was aimed at the Scandinavian market. The Gramophone Company, which was Victor's European sister company, placed in the UK, released records in Denmark, Sweden and Norway under the name "Concert Record Gramophone" from 1903 to 1923, then switched the name to the more familiar "His Master's Voice".
