Internet Weekly Report - Art And Culture

 
UCB - Vintage Sheet Music Archive

UCB Music Library - Digital Sheet Music Collection
This is a great collection sheet music scans from 1890 to 1920.  In addition to the huge ragtime section, there are Western, Colorado and Ingram collections.  My only wish is that this site included links so that you could hear recorded versions of these songs and music where possible.  The ones I found on YouTube, I blogged below in the video item.  Here are some of my favorite images from the collection.

Just in case you are interested in who Gaby Deslys is, she was a beautiful dancer, whose life was cut tragically short in 1919.


Everything in America is Ragtime


Sweet Potatoes (1906)


Smiling Star (1908)


The Grizzly Bear Rag (1910)
