You see, she liked these young musicians, and in comes John Work and I - we were young to her. We were something sent down, and she didn't know which one to choose. Each of us knew we were not choosing her! We just wanted to talk, but she was interested in other things - Sterling Brown quoted in Ma Rainey and The Classic Blues Singers, Derrick Stewart-Baxter

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)

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,'s great!
