I only see the Digest, so perhaps this has already been addressed, but Ken  
Flaherty of Polk Miller CD fame is working on a reissue of the earliest 
Fisk  recordings that will include all of the Edison cylinders, beautifully  
restored... including one (which I had previously not heard) featuring the  
strong lead tenor of Roland Hayes. His earliest recording, age 24. The  
experimental discs of course are lost, as is most unissued material from this  era.
 
I believe the only missing (issued) recording by them from this era is one  
of the rare Starrs from 1916. Starr 7554 has not turned up yet.
 
The cylinder made by a Fisk quartet at the ARSC Conference in Nashville in  
1997 may be "lost" in a sense. I understand that the Fisk music director 
forbid  Peter Dilg from making any copies, for anyone. (Even me--and I did the 
 announcement, doing my best Ed Meeker imitation). Perhaps Mike Biel filmed 
 it.
 
The Fisk Singers made three LPs in the 1950s, one of which, on  Folkways, 
should still be available from the Smithsonian as a CDR. They made  very few 
commercial recordings after that, for which see Allmusic and  Amazon.

e Fisk  chapter on my commute home tonight.How beautifully written!Very  in=
teresting, insightful commentary all the way through.I see the three  Docu=
