Dimples is indeed as Trebor Jay Tichenor wrote in his Ragtime Rediscoveries, a fine rag. It has a "classic" form of AABBCCDD in the major keys of C and F. The word "intermezzo" in the subtitle is used as a term to mean a short concert piece in the same was as Johannes Brahms for example who used it for his short piano works. Those who might think Dimples honours a well-known whiskey are immediately disabused when regarding the charming dimpled young lady depicted on the front cover of the original sheet music.
Dimples was published by Colburn-Rendina Music Pub. Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
