The Library of Ragtime and Early Blues by Amy Appleby and Peter Pickow is Outstanding. As a New York school music educator, this is the best and most complete musical tribute to this era that I have ever seen. It deserves 10 stars and will definitely be a fantastic addition to your home music library. I highly recommend it for the more advanced piano student since ragtime and blues can often be a bit challenging to play. The book has a beautiful introduction, table of contents (grouped by composer) and index of about 90 favorites. I like the fact that the name is printed on the edge of the white durable plastic binding, making it easy to find on a book shelf. All of the Amsco books in the library series that I own are attractively the same height. Each and every ¿rag¿ in this book is not only fun and exciting to play but appears to be easy on the eyes due to the fact that it is printed clearly on heavy, white bond paper. The book is a great value and would make a present that keeps on giving. My favorite ragtime composer is Scott Joplin. To my delight, there are 22 of his original compositions in this book. I began playing my favorite of all ragtime pieces, ¿The Maple Leaf Rag¿ the minute I received this book as a gift. It was the best gift ever! I didn¿t even know that Scott Joplin wrote a 'Wall Street Rag.' I liked the annotations over the different sections of this piece, such as ¿brokers feeling melancholy¿ or ¿good times have come.¿ I would be remiss if I didn¿t mention some of the other 40 composers in this book such as James Scott, W.C. Handy, Joseph Lamb, Scott Hayden, Irving Berlin, Tom Turpin and Eubie Blake, etc. There is also a whole section on Ragtime songs, such as Irving Berlin¿s ¿Alexander¿s Ragtime Band¿ along with cakewalks, classic rags, blues rags and folk rags. I have hours of enjoyment ahead of me.
