Not sure even 1903 is the correct first release. DAHR lists even earlier recordings, the first one being 23 July 1900. Apparently Francisco did 2 recordings of the song in 1900, one in 1901 and 5 in 1904. The first recording was released on Victor A-171, but it doesn't say when. Based on the low catalogue number I would assume it is pretty early. In the notes it says "Returned: 5 May '02: 124 cps.; returned: 31 Dec.'02: 705 cps.", but I'm not sure what that means.
