Thanks for your response. I've been in touch with Paul Jenkins, author of the biography THE LAST MINSTREL. I provided him
with a great amount of information for the discography, some of which he did not include, and also continued lack of clarity
about the various incarnations of Dyer-Bennet's 78's. Otherwise, the book is an excellent portrait of RDB.
I need someone who is familiar with the VOA recordings to shed light on the VOA disc.
Best wishes, Thomas.

Well a quick Google got:
So you could email the site creator.
Also you could put out an appeal on Mudcat.org
Your 16" TD might have been compiled from any number of recordings.
I would opine that the site creator &/or the Smithsonian would appreciare a copy of yout disc- if you can find a player.
It appears that the Smithsonian-Folkways label has issued a number of recordings recently on CD.
