Song in English (Cohan, George)

Date of recording: Thursday, 11/07/1918

I have received a considerable number of direct transfers of original 78 records from a friend. They have been digitized directly from his original 78 records. The recording quality is mostly very good - some unavoidable needle noise is present, of course.

Dorothy Park Benjamin, whom Caruso married six weeks after the recording was made, used phonetics to coach Caruso on the English text.
She later said: "He liked everything about 'Over There'. The text, the melody, the idea and the composer George M. Cohan."
