Thanks for the tips, David. I found this online:

Apparently, there were plenty of alternate takes at all the Armstrong Audio Fidelity sessions (keep 
scrolling down for the 1960 Louis/Dukes of Dixieland session) and Chiaroscuro put them all out on LP 
and then later CD. Were those releases legal? Did Chiaroscuro have a connection to the Audio 
Fidelity owners?
