The Mississippi State University Libraries and the Charles Templeton Music Museum are pleased to release their first CD, Ragtime Piano Classics, highlighting ragtime piano music.

This collection represents the finest ragtime piano recordings during the first forty-five years of ragtime piano's recorded history, embracing cylinders, piano rolls, 78s, 45s and early LPs. Many of the performances found on the CD were recorded by their composers while a few contain brilliant conceptions by outstanding interpreters.

The compilation of this CD is a result of the Templeton Museum in partnership with world-renowned author, composer, and pianist David Jasen.
