PennSound has located a rare sound recording of Tom Weathelry, reading in Grand Valley Michigan in July of 1971. 
(21;07): MP3 
Weatherly reads the complete serial poem "MAUMAU AMERICAN CANTOS" for the first ten minutes of the reading (text here); after that he reads various poems, including “Lady Fox” from Thumprint but nothing else from that book or MAUMAU.
