    I found this on vinyl. It was released on the Elektra side label Nonesuch.
    Fantastic playing by Joshua Rifkin. It consists of ragtime compositions
    from the turn of the last century. Very complex arrangements. Something
    very different as far as what i normally listen to. :)

    ya i grew up in Sedalia,MO and they now have a Scott Joplin Festival there every year. I haven't been to the fest in years but should go back when we have time.

    Very cool. I wish I was good enough to play some of Joplin's music on the guitar.

    Scott Joplin on the guitar would be seriously impressive. My dad used to play it all the time on the piano.

    Hahaha. I've got that exact album on vinyl. I stole it from a friend who stole it from a public library. Long story. Great album.

    I love Scott Joplin. I also enjoy collecting midi versions of his stuff and playing them through a sequencer. It's a great way of learning them on Piano too.
