Dat Lovin' Rag was first performed as a song in Victor H. Smalley's The Merry Widower by Lottie Grady and Jerry Mills in 1907. It was obviously popular enough to warrant the publication just one year later of an instrumental version, a two step for piano, of which this is the recorder adaptation. Its form is a 4-bar introduction followed by ABCC sections each of 16-bars in the key of A-minor throughout. The descant voice will especially enjoy having the melody from start to finish in this fine, uncomplicated rag.
Dat Lovin' Rag was published by F. B. Haviland Publishing Co. Inc., New York, USA.
A tempo of 164 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a descant solo version of this item.
