Synopsis

Product Description
In 1916, Scott Joplin sat down at a piano and played 'Maple Leaf Rag,' 'Weeping Willow Rag,' and a few other originals. And now these performances are available on compact disc, and here s the thing they have been digitally recorded. What? Digitally recorded performances from 1916? Well of course, Joplin didn t make a recording, he made a piano roll. And Biograph Records, the historical label that knows a thing or two about piano rolls, has issued three CDs worth of the things: a pair of Joplin discs ('The Entertainer' and 'Elite Syncopations') and a compilation ('King of Ragtime Writers'). It s fascinating indeed, it s downright scary to hear these songs more or less as performed by Scott Joplin. There you are: what goes around comes around. Scott Joplin digitally recorded then, digitally recorded now.
