...is clearly displayed here. The Ragtime era was ending and jazz and popular song were on the way. There are still some sentimental works, like M-O-T-H-E-R and Memories, but there is stark contrast from Nola, first of the novelty genre, and the spirited Tiger and 12th Street Rags. Although the bulk of these songs were released around WWI, war song entries are sparse, and aside from Over There, the most obvious one is actually an anti-war song. Still, it's a balanced collection, of which many of the pieces are available for a listen on my web site. Still, it's better to hear them with the book in hand, so stick it in the cart.
