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 and Other Rag Classics (Vanguard, 1972)





NOTE:  This is a re-post  request (originally from 2011).

About this double LP:
This was the second time I've "borrowed" it from Mom -- now permanently, of course -- in Heaven they don;t need LPs!  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
