Has anyone found a copy of Leonard Rutherford's recording of "Sally Johnson"?

Here's Clyde Davenport's version, learned from Rutherford: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHS-kRjkiRA

​Bobby Fulcher says "It was actually released, . . . but no copy exists."

I'm sure that's good too, but its Clyde and W.L. Gregory, not the original. Its also not on the Document CD which says its the "Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order," so it makes you wonder.

BTW, I did the sound for that show at Appalshop, and that's my audio in the YouTube video. We get questions here sometimes about mics for fiddles, and just for fun I wonder if anyone can identify the mic in that video. Not very common, I don't think.

Well second hand is better than no hand.  You might check the digital files from Document but good luck!

"Well second hand is better than no hand." I agree, Bob, but the original question was "Has anyone found a copy of Leonard Rutherford's recording of "Sally Johnson"?

He has the video of Clyde, which I guess is third hand, but good enough for me.

BTW, according to an online Gennett discography "Sally Johnson" was recorded 4/11/29 by Rutherford and Foster and released on Gennett #6913 b/w "Taylor's Monroe County Quickstep."

Interesting Doug, now I wonder why is it so rare?  I thought Document had it all.
