Help me expand my paltry collection of Louis Armstrong. I have "King Oliver," "Satch Blows the Blues" and the 20th Century Masters "The Best of Louis Armstrong" (and perhaps a few other in the same vein which I cannot locate due to the general disarray in which I store music). However enticing this stuff is, it all represents sort of the big hits stuff. I would like to find some of the more obscure and personable stuff. I just saw this amazing clip at http://www.oxfordamericanmag.com/webextras.cfm. Is there similar stuff on disc with Louis in his prime?
