Exactly two years ago, in June
of 1999, we presented a feature on Ragtime music. With only a few songs
and a short "In search Of" article, that issue proved to be one of
our most popular. Since that time we have developed our feature articles and
In Search Of articles to a higher level so this month we would like to have
an opportunity to share with you more of our Ragtime works and an expanded In
Search Of article about Ragtime. If you have read that original article,
be sure to revisit it as we have added more in-depth definition of the genre,
expanded the history, added some musical examples and refined the Scott Joplin
We have a great deal of tremendous music to present you this month
and are expanding our feature to include a lucky thirteen songs rather than
our usual ten to accommodate all the wonderful ragtime music. In addition, you
will find two others in our Ragtime, In Search Of article. So, sit back, get
your Scorch player revved up and enjoy a summer picnic of ragtime music from
the past masters of piano rags and rag songs.
As with most of our features, this month's is covered on two separate
pages to speed your downloads and to avoid a mile-long page. Be sure to see
them BOTH to fully enjoy all of this month's music!
