This Broadway show opened January 8, 1912 and ran for 112 performances. I do not know if other selections from "Bird of Paradise" were issued as well. This original cast recording is said to have iniitiated the craze for Hawaiian music in the U.S. and elsewhere and contributed to theukulele's popularity during the jazz age.It's pretty unusual for this may selections with the original cast members to be recording this early.
Therecordingswere made in April, 1913, I assume during or after the show toured the U.S.
Note: 65345 does not mention "Bird of Paradise" but the internet listing for this production includes these 2 selection with the above cast. members
Thses were ilisted in Victorr's Foreign Language series rather than the general popular music block as is the case with many of the follow-uo Hawaiian music titles.
