Temptation Rag was Lodge's greatest hit and has been recorded by many artists over the years. The charming temptress shown on the front cover of the original sheet music is a long tressed redhead with alluring eyes and bright scarlet mouth presiding over a watery domain. The rag itself is a fine effervescent piece with many nice touches. In this recorder adaptation the descant is cordially invited to help out the rhythm section with a bass or even tenor where appropriate. Alternatively a second bass could take over the bass notes.
Temptation Rag was published by M. Witmark and Sons, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, USA.
A tempo of 108 crotchets/min. is given but taking it a little slower is also effective.
