Fiery Steeds
It looks to me the title on the label is "Fiery Steeds". In Alan Kelly catalog it translated as "A pair of bay horses". What shall we pick?

Юрий!

Остановится на чём-то было бы можно если запись послушать.

Но по логике если запись отсутствует значит пластинка пришла в полную негодность от времени

ну не факт, просто возможно у владельца нет проигрывателя или программы на компьютере, хотя конечно вид у пластинки не важный к тому-же похоже что один край обожжён чем-то,.да и запилена она ужасно и зацарапана, немудрено за 111 лет существования...

Re:
Нет, звук приемлемый. Обычный для пластинок 'acid process' 1890-х гг. И край не обожжен, это мой неудачный скан. Нужно будет перезалить. Тогда заодно добавлю звук.

A pair of bays
This song was recorded by A.M. Davidov and was translated (I can't remember where, probably also by Kelly) as "A pair of bays". It's clearer to say "bay horses" as bay can mean several things.

Thank you, Adrian!
I searched the other records of this romance on the website - there are about 10 of them. All have "A pair of bay horses" title, so I updated this record to it too.

Glad to help!
In the Russian HMV catalogue by J R Bennett, this title is listed as 'My pair of greys', but Davydov's recording 22066 is given as 'A pair of bays'.

A 'bay' in the meaning of a horse is a reddish-brown coloured horse, so 'fiery steeds' is a loose and flowery translation.

'Bay' can also mean a harbour, a recess in a wall, a laurel leaf used for cooking and an animal howl!
