Lately, I've been buying a lot of "The Complete Works of..." types of CDs for a good overall view of certain composers and players. This is the complete Scott Joplin, as played by William Albright, who is a pretty well-known modern composer with a penchant for ragtime and early jazz styles. All your favorites are here, such as The Maple Leaf Rag, The Pineapple Rag, and, of course, The Entertainer. I love plunking through fingerstyle versions of these tunes, and Albright does a pretty good job with them.
