Lead Belly's first commercial recordings were indeed made in 1935 for ARC.

I was contacted a few years ago by a Lead Belly researcher who said that he once performed in Montreal. I'm not sure exactly when that would have been.

"Goodnight Irene" really spread into public consciousness after the Weavers hit version, circa 1950.
