I found an unreleased version of the Wabash Cannonball by Woody while
working on the Asch Folkways collection in the Ralph Rinzler Archive. It
was a bit of tape on a 7" reel sitting in a Guy Lombardo box. But you
could tell it was late in his career when Huntington's had his voice,
probably not worth releasing for Moe. I suppose it's "public" in that
anyone can go to the archive to hear it, but Folkways owns it.
