The song on which "No More" was based is "La Paloma," written By Sebastián Yradier, a Basque and student of the Madrid Conservatory, who was influenced by the music of Havana, Cuba, during his travels in the 1850s. He wrote the song and performed it for the first time in Havana in 1855; it was first published in 1859. Giannini's original was recorded on Berliner. Giannini was a Italian tenor who emigrated to the USA in 1885 to become one of the first singers to be recorded on disc in 1896. See also "Santa Lucia."
