I agree, "Stomp Mister Henry Lee" is a real stomper. I sub now & then
with the Golden Eagles here in So. Cal . They play that and a lot more
seldom heard tunes.
Among my own long list of seldom played (by others) anymore, but are
played regularly by my band, Gremoli are:
"Give Me Your Telephone Number", by J.C. Higginbotham, 1930. Now there
was a T'bone player that nobody seems to mention???????
"Lady Love", by Natty Dominique, 1928. Another stomper that Johhny Dodds
"Magnolia's Wedding Day", by Jimmy McHugh & Dorothy Fields, 1928 for
show, "Blackbirds of 1928". Ellington had a terrific recording of that one.
All three are real stompers as are a lot more.
I'll stop there and wait to see who has what else.
