Mirror Transcription: X-12427 Reverse side
Additional information: The label identifies the director/bandleader as one Lebedenko, but the aural evidence clearly identifies this as a recording by the same four-piece instrumental group which recorded more than 40 pieces for Syrena as the Romanian Orchestra under the direction of V. Belf, a Jewish music ensemble consisting of clarinet, two violins and piano.
The melody played here, a common "kazatsky/kazochok" is also well-known under the English title Sailors Hornpipe
I have transliterated the sub-title (in parentheses on the label) to the best of my ability. Perhaps someone with a better grasp of pre-Soviet Cyrillic can improve upon and/or explain it.

The disc was transferred (by personnel at the collection which houses it) at a turntable speed of 75.26rpm. This was determined by digitally measuring the time between repeated clicks caused by defects in the record surface. It has been digitally increased to an effective turntable speed of 82.08rpm (a factor of 1.0905) to sound at the correct pitch and tempo.

Good evening Kurt and thank you for the submission!

As a tip for the future, you can use the language tags to separate the translations for the title and other fields that are filled in. (I have added an example of this in your submission). I look forward to hearing more of your records soon
