Overview

To get 50 of Scott Joplin's compositions onto a two-LP set, pianist Knocky Parker chose to play all of his themes just once (using an A-B-A-C-D format rather than A-A-B-B-A-C-C-D-D).

This twofer is therefore useful for piano students who want to quickly hear what all of Joplin's melodies sound like, but can be passed over by most ragtime collectors. Get Richard Zimmerman's five-LP Murray Hill Scott Joplin collection instead.
