Ragtime! Revisited

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 biography information.

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!
