That's great, Eric! Incidentally, the reason the label lists the composer as "Seymore" is that Bennett published the piece under the pseudonym "Barney & Seymore."

Here's another Ossman recording of the tune, also from 1906 but with a small orchestra accompanying. This one is taken from an Edison "Gold Moulded Record," which I believe refers to a cylinder rather than a disc.


DVR didn't learn it from either of the Ossman recordings, or from the sheet music, but from a recording of a player piano.

 I'd like to make a recommendation.
If you can pick up a copy of the vinyl LP (never been reissued on CD, to the best of my knowledge), Kings Of The Ragtime Banjo, on Yazoo, it would be a great addition to any record collection

  One side is Ossman, the other side, Fred Van Eps (Father of Jazz Guitarist, George Van Eps)

Every cut is a gem

I thought I already posted but....for a great hillbilly version, check out the Humphries  Brothers.  I can't find it online and can't figure out how to shrink my MP3 down small enough to post here, but....it's great!
