For your consideration is a rare vintage 10 inch 78 rpm record by Rudolph Valentino entitled Kashmiri Love Song b/w El Relicario. The only recording of the voice of Rudolph Valentino, one of the most famous film stars of the silent era, whose premature death at the age of 31 in 1926 cemented his stature and legend. These sides were recorded in 1923 and likely released after his death although I am not certain. Very rare today. There are two variations. One with the turban and the other with the hat. The hat variation is the rarer of the two. I will be offering both. Nice one!

All of our old shellac and vinyl 78 records are packed with utmost care and precaution so as to ensure they arrive to you in the same condition in which they were shipped out. I have extensive experience shipping 78s. For an in depth explanation of my shipping methods, see the bottom of this page. All items will be shipped within 3 days of purchase. All good faith offers thoroughly considered.

Keep in mind that for the highest fidelity reproduction results, a correct sized, well maintained stylus should always be used and antique records should also always receive a deep cleaning with a stiff bristled brush and a non-alcohol based soap. I do not provide grading beyond what is required by eBay. If the photographs prove insufficient, do not hesitate to reach out with a question, as well as any other type of inquiry related to an item. 

All 78 rpm records, vinyl or shellac, will be shipped sandwiched between either thick cardboard or some spare 78 rpm discs to provide substantial reinforcement for uneven pressure placed on a package during shipment. The record sandwich is then suspended in packing peanuts on all sides. Packing peanuts are the optimal durable memory material as they will insulate your item against any acute forces such as a fall or any type of blow and unlike bubble wrap will not pop and lose their shape if subjected to a strong force.
