There may be confusion over Reginald Foort’s 1926 version. The World Records transfer seems to be of a different take on the same day.  The label of ER 24 gives the matrix as 09384, but WorldCat has CR 651-1.

 

Richard Ellsasser is at http://www.albertketelbey.org.uk/mp3/in%20a%20persian%20market%20-%20Ellsasser.mp3

Ellsasser’s camel train moves at express pace, and his princess arrives and departs ringing a bicycle bell. His organ uses a device called a Dynamic Accentor, which makes the loud passages quite painful

Foort’s performance vary.  In 1952 the camels are phrased differently, the caliph has two organ ranks out of sync., and the final loud chord is omitted.

Maclean’s version has many cuts, and only lasts 2’44.

Benna Moe has some unexpected accompanying harmony, as though his left hand didn’t know what it was doing.  The rhythm of his camels is almost 6/8, the jugglers can’t hardly be heard above the accompaniment, and his caliph skips along.

Montalba plays very rhythmically, helped by good percussion stops.
