Comments

Front cover in heavy discolouration.

Inside The Groove

A good easy-listeningable ensemble with Ragtime flavours.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Authentic Ragtime Music? Anyway, we can enjoy on this album a very happy, good-old flavoured ensemble. Few musical stimulation, but a nice easy-listening type music.

Above of all, its recording is rather Hi-Fi around its time. A very good monaural recording.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
