I can’t quite tell, but it sounds like something like ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ by the national anthem — something with a good English translation.”
While many would probably have assumed that singing the “Stars and Stripes,” or just “The Star-Spangled Banner,” had never been performed before, there have been some notable cases where “Star Spangled Banner” has been sung in a solo performance. It’s been covered as late as the 1950s, for instance. But few would have considered it to be as popular as it was back then, and as to why some in the music world would even consider it controversial, we don’t ever really know.
Here’s where it gets interesting. It turns out, in fact, that when “Star Spangled Banner” was recorded on its original version that is on CD-Rom, it was “Star Spangled Banner” by “The Star-Spangled Banner” — just as the original recording does not feature “The Star-Spangled Banner,” it was recorded on one of the earliest versions ever, which does feature “The Star-Spangled Banner.” That original recording was made a month or two after “The Star-Spangled Banner” was penned by Alexander Hamilton. In other words, when you listen to the original recording now, it’s actually quite popular.
And you know what?
That “Star Spangled Banner” version is much, much older than “The Star-Spangled Banner,” even having been in effect since 1775. A few years ago (thanks to the great Harold P. Jones for sharing his article!), we did some digging and found more information about that original recording — not surprisingly — it was a recording of “Star Spangled Banner” that was first performed in 1606, the year it was written (or at least the one that is included in the original recording).
Here’s what our pal Harold P. Jones says about the original recording:
In the book “Alexander Hamilton: The New American Revolution: A History” by Alexander C. Moore, there is a story about Alexander Hamilton that has often been passed around as if it were news: a recording of “Star-Spangled Banner” in 1606 being played during a service at Mount Vernon! Moore explains in his book that a man named John Williams has been selling copies of it on the road in order to fund the cost of this very service. And of course, Williams was in Washington at the time of that recording
