Initials .. on the Trade Mark
 
apparently belongs to selling agent K.G.Sharlakh that was hired by the director of International Zonophone Company in Europe for marketing Zonophone records and machines manufactured by the Berlin factory. Following is the extract from Gramophone and Phonograph magazine 9-12, 4-25 March of 1903: K.G.Sharlakh for 12 years used to sell metal goods in Petersburg. In 1901 he signed a contact with Zonophone director in Berlin Mr.Prescott and became the sole representative of Zonophone in Russia.

It is extremely rare record, one of five Vialtzeva records made for early Zonopnone
 
The full list was published by Robert Bauer in his "New Catalogue of Historical Records, 1898-1908/09", London, 1947, p.452. and also by Ernie Bayly and Michæl S. Kinnear in their "A Discography of recordings produced by the International Zonophone Company and associated companies in Europe and the Americas, 1901-1903".

It looks like this is a piratical copy of the Grammophone record 2-22654
 
On the top of everything the tile is misspelled: "" instead of "B"

George W. Johnson
 
The Laughing Coon

Away down south, where I was born,
We used to hoe and weed that corn...
Always low, walking slow,
ha-ha-ha do you hear me now?
...

It looks like the song is about happiness of releasing from slavery (Johnson was born in slavery on a plantation in Virginia in 1850)...

George W. Johnson was one of the first African American Recording Star. He also regarded as the 2nd person ever to record a song for popular listening cylinders in 1888. They say that it was Thomas A. Edison himself who invited him to record his first wax phonograph cylinder for a fee of twenty cents per 2 minute. The recording went well, and in 1890 Johnson began recording regularly for various companies in the New York and New Jersey area.

His hits were The Whistling Coon and the Laughing Coon. In the earliest days of the recording industry, every record was a "master". A strong voiced singer could make a maximum of 5 records at once, as 5 machines with their recording horns pointed towards the singer's mouth were started at the same time. By 1894, Johnson was reported to have sold over 25,000 records recorded this way. He would sometimes sing the same song over and over again in the recording studio fifty or more times a day.

Johnson made his first disc records in 1895 for Berliner Gramophone. In addition to Berliner, Edison Records, and Columbia, and somewhat later the Victor Talking Machine Company,

This record is the vivid proof that Johnson also recorded for Zonophone, we just need to find out the date of recording

Vialzeva Orpheon
 
Although Orpheon was undobtedly a Piratic Company, I have a number of Orpheon discs which seem to be genuine original recordings. The illustrated Vialtzeva is an example of such.

Thank you for the link!
 
Yes, currently it is certainly the oldest record on this. By the way, following is a very interesting link that was given to me by Jurek Gogacz - there are even some soundtracks from Russian phonograph cylinders!!
