"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

This collection features country ragtime from 1917 to 1935a genre that mixes the syncopation of African-American rhythms with the melodic structure of European dance music. As these recordings demonstrate, musicians created different mixtures of these elements: some rags sound more like the blues, while others are closer to European quadrilles.
