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

Ragtime was first recorded in 1897, and this selection of recordings begins shortly thereafter, in 1902. Although listeners associate ragtime with the piano, musicians arranged popular rags for other instruments, and vaudevillians used these tunes in their acts. This compilation represents this diversity of practice in ragtime music.
