For this solo piano set, Trebor Tichenor performs 24 rags, all of which are quite obscure. Only "Pork and Beans" and Tom Turpin's "A Ragtime Nightmare" are slightly known and certainly tunes such as "Bully Rag," "Peroxide (!)," "Rathskeller Drag" and "Klondike Rag" never became famous. In addition to the classic material from the 1909-1917 period, Tichenor performs seven of his own more recent pieces and Brun Campbell's 1942 "Barrelhouse Rag." The music overall is delightful and well played with many charming (and nearly lost) melodies.
