Big Maceo discography

Big Maceo's career was cut short in the summer months of 1946 by a stroke, initially robbing him of the use of his right side. Paralysed and sick, it would have finished most performers. However, the musical community rallied behind him so that he was to enter the studio again in 1947, a young Eddie Boyd accompanying him on piano. (after Gillian George's liner notes to Document DOCD 5647)

Until now I didn't find any evidence that this coupling has ever been released - just a claim in Fancourt & McGrath 2012, which might as well be a mix-up with the 20-3058 coupling, which I actually *did* find (at least as a promo disc)!
