AllMusic Review by

In 1974 Richard Zimmerman recorded a brilliant five-LP set that includes virtually every selection written or arranged by Scott Joplin, the king of ragtime composers. In addition to interpreting all of Joplin's rags, Zimmerman performed the composer's early songs, the music from his ragtime opera "Treemonisha" and some works that were not discovered until the 1970s. The enclosed booklet also gives a definitive account of Joplin's music and life. This box may still be available in collector's shops (it has not been reissued yet on CD) and is the best and most thorough documentation of Scott Joplin's music yet.
