Mark,

Rosengarten's recordings of Ned Cobb are in the Southern Historical
Collection, Manuscripts Department, University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill. 919-962-1345, if memory serves me. This collection was
trashed by Hurricane Hugo in the late 1980s and cleaned and transferred
at UNC. I believe there are around 40 5" reels recorded at 15/16 ips.
