Dave Apollon steals this compilation by a mile with the two crazed Russian rags on here (his mandolin playing is so furious that probably even Django Reinhardt would be scratching his head in sheer bewilderment!), but it's all good! from good ole Jim & Bob (with some hot ukulele) to The Dallas String Band's quite well known 'Dallas Rag'. Good old fashioned rag-time virtuosity from back when they really knew how to play 'em.
