Arthur Marshall described The Peach, just as he did The Pippin (1908), as a "A Sentimental Rag". The rag's fruity title was well within the accepted rag naming conventions of the day, perhaps he was inspired by his mentor's Peacherine Rag (1901) or Percy Wenrich's Crab Apples (1908).
This is a no-nonsense, straight-up-and-down classic rag its form being 4-bar introduction followed by AABBACCDD sections. The strains are indeed sentimental and I particularly admire the subtleties and falling tones in the final DD section.
The Peach was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
