Thanks to everyone, but you told me what I had discovered already today.
The record is unknown to the experts, but I have a 7-year old scan of side B,
and thus I know it's by Axel. At the time I did not know it was rarer than
Zulu's Ball, of which 2 sides of an existing copy are known, and did not make 
a note about the A-side. You all know that problem.
(Can I get rich by selling the scan of side B?)
My interest is discographically only. I hope someone has the record and
can give us the info.

Han -
Ty S. doesn't show it on the website and I don't have label scans of 
either side.
I guess I'll have to consult "The Book."
Well darn it, Walt Allen's 20000 list doesn't show it, either!
And neither does the NYRL discog at the University of Wisconsin (which I 
just now discovered!):
Hmmm... it's very possible 20217 has yet to be identified.
There are other sources available to me but they are in Europe and 
require my sending out actual letters which can take as much as a two 
week turnaround. Just how bad do you need this info?
