In addition, according to The Guinness Book of World Records and many other sources, he is acknowledged as having recorded more musical sides (on 78-rpm discs), than any other person, living or dead. One reason for this prolific output is that he recorded for dozens of different labels during this high-growth time in the industry, using a different name (or slightly different name) on each label.
It’s estimated that Mr. Selvin recorded in the neighborhood of 13,000 to near 20,000 song titles; more than Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Paul Whiteman and even the other 1920’s prolific bandleader Sam Lanin combined!
