Recorded in April 1902, more than 110 years ago, the operatic melody tells the story of two things. The first is a great voice of Italian – Enrico Caruso – will long live in the hearts of people. The second – the sound of gramophone with its creaks gives more charm to the sound. It gets some home-like and closer to each of us. Under this melody, well-dressed gentlemen may ceremoniously bow to elegantly dressed ladies with parasols. Ah, these old days!
