A Rag-time Skedaddle quite in accordance with the title, fairly breezes and skips along. The cover of the original sheet music is a pictorial pun, a display of roses each labelled with the title of a Rosey composition. A discord however is the inclusion amongst these roses of a Negro head set against an open razor - part of the skedaddle perhaps? The publisher also makes the claim that this piece was the greatest cake-walk hit of all. This adaptation for recorder sextet will keep the performers on their toes. Except for the 2nd bass and great bass, there is much bar-counting to do as the "folksy" melodies are shared by the upper voices.
A Rag-time Skedaddle was published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 96 crotchets/min. crotchets/min. is suggested.
