UCB Ragtime Sheet Music Collection
I have a little Ragtime theme going this week after I listened to several versions of the Sheik of Araby (below). I start off this theme with this fine ragtime collection from the University of Colorado.


If You Love Your Baby Make Goo Goo Eyes

The Sheik of Araby (PCL)
Analog has collected over 20 wonderful versions of this classic ragtime song.  I really enjoyed the Beatles, Spike Jones, Django Reinhardt and Fats Domino versions.


Lyrics by Harry B. Smith And Fancis Wheeler
Music by Ted Snyder (1921)

Ragtime Sheet Music Covers
The scans could larger, but still, this is a very interesting collection of ragtime covers.  I didn't realize there was really was a Purple Rose of Cairo Song.

Untitled Work

Girodet: Romantic Rebel
"He interpreted his subjects in an evocative and dreamlike manner, often adding a strange, erotic charge. Increasingly he explored themes of a more Romantic nature, taking up subjects that involved irrational emotions and the exotic."  Also, see these additional scans from the Art Renewal Center.
