Lester, that album (Blues Roar/ Screamin' Blues)is going to difficult to find unfortunately.

Just seen a snippet of unseen tv footage, a rehearsal, from early sixties. 
Crane shot looking down on ring of musicians, Dukes of Dixieland alternating 
spaces with Firehouse 5 a la Busby Berkeley. Striking, stripes and Firemen's 
helmets. Shot pans downward to front view and suddenly from side comes Al Hirt 
simultaneously playing and cartwheeling appears. Song "Old Spinning Wheel" what else.
