A specific request for Ravel conducting his own Bolero. With the Orchestre Des Concerts Lamoureux recorded for Polydor in 1932 (Polydor records were issued in America by Brunswick). Ravel was not considered a particularly good conductor, even of his own works. I think the Mengelberg version is better and the 3-sided Koussevitsky version was more popular – and with better sound. However, this is certainly historically important.
