Notes
Note from ADP editors: John Philip Sousa is shown as "Lieut. USNRF" in the Victor ledgers for this matrix. From Musician Biographies, http://www.musicianguide.com/biographies/1608000817/John-Philip-Sousa.html: "[John Philip Sousa's father] took his son to the Marine Corps headquarters and had him signed up as an apprentice violinist. .. When he was 20, Sousa received a special discharge from the Marines and embarked on a career as a professional musician. He toured with two companies and a vaudeville show, worked at two Philadelphia theaters, taught music, composed operettas, and even corrected proofs at a publishing company. .. In 1917, Sousa—then 62—reenlisted, this time joining the U.S. Naval Reserve Force as America entered World War I. Lieutenant Sousa formed a huge musical battalion of over three hundred members and marched across the country in tremendous parades that raised millions of dollars for the war effort."
Disc label gives the composer's name as "John Philip Sousa, U. S. N. R. F."
