"I believe I reviewed this CD already; try to remember what I said. The Disk is a delightful surprise for the ragtime expert crowd, except would have like it even better if the arranger chose "Elite Syncopations" (Joplin) with a little paino keyboard rolling to accompany it. The Eubie Blake, Zez Confrey, and Joe Lamb Rags are delightful to weary ears. Listen to this CD, and forget some of the rebarbative commercial trash we have to listen to otherwise...Robert K Barclay"
A Surprise Favorite Ragtimer

"Since I'd never heard of Richard Dowling, I had modest expectations, but I like to listen to all the ragtime pianists. (Years ago I borrowed pianos to play "closet" ragtime myself, just to get at those gorgeous chords of Joplin and Joe Lamb). Well, Dowling surprised me with his lyrical, lovely playing! He's a real discovery, and a favorite, along with Dick Hyman. I like also Max Morath for his bouncy and congenial playing & singing. So you give Dowling a chance, and I hope he records more tunes from the large ragtime repertory."
