AllMusic Review by

The piano duo of Glenn Jenks and Dan Grinstead stick to obscurities during this set of music from the ragtime era. The songs date from 1896-1922 with one original by Jenks from 1975. None of the songs have been exactly overplayed through the years, certainly not "Tickled to Death," "Charge of the Light Brigade," "Echoes from the Snowball Club" or "Kangaroo Hop." The music is as charming as the titles and will reward investigation by early jazz and ragtime fans.
