Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

The Best of Scott Joplin et al

When doing a tiny percentage of the work needed to clean out my parents' home, I took it upon myself (with big brother Robert's OK) to toil in the fields of music.  I took six boxes of cassettes, LPs, VHS, and others to the Goodwill.  But I kept a few.  One was this record.

This is the second time I've "borrowed" it from Mom.  The first time was in 1979, where it can in fact be seen at the top of this page, behind Spock and his earphones.

Now, for some reason the CD release of this leaves out 4 or 5 selections.  Here, I have included them all, although one or two have been replaced with other performances due to skips on the LP.

This is such thoughtfully happy music!  (Kind of like Mom and Dad)  The first LP is performed by Max Morath solely, and the second is with the Original Rag Quartet.

Here are the Tracks:

01 - Original Rags  - 4:04
02 - Scott Joplin's New Rag - 3:19          
03 - Euphonic Sounds - 3:28
04 - Hilarity - 2:43
05 - Country Club - 4:29
06 - American Beauty - 3:39
07 - St. Louis Rag - 2:33
08 - Cottontail Rag - 3:49
09 - Patricia Rag - 2:29
10 - Silver Swan - 3:42
11 - Quality      - 2:34
12 - Elite Syncopations - 3:36
13 - Gladiolus Rag - 3:46
14 - The Cannon Ball - 2:06
15 - The Entertainer - 3:06
16 - Slippery Elm - 2:40
17 - A Real Slow Drag - 3:04
