My Rag Time Lady is an early Daniels song, he was barely 20 years old when composing it, reflecting the transition from marches and cakewalks to the ragtime era. Its humorous subtitle, An Operatic Spasm, clearly indicates that a light-hearted affair is intended. It was originally sung by a certain Miss Lucy Daly in a Ward & Vokes Vaudeville production called The Govenors.
A tempo of 120 crotchets/min. is suggested. My Rag Time Lady was published by Carl Hoffman Music Co, Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Britta Steenken, songstress of Bremen, Germany.
