Thanks for checking, Bill.  I'm glad I wasn't wrong about not being able to 
find that recording.  It might well have been recorded specifically for the 
show.  I'm not familiar with the Tap Room Blues, though I have heard of 
Preacher Rollo (God knows where!).

May I also comment, as many others have done, that this is a great list?  
Thanks for all the info you and others regularly provide.
