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 
tore up.
"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.
