That Eccentric Rag is another fine Robinson rag and has the classic ragtime form of AABBACCDD with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the melodies are shared 3/1 by the treble and 1st tenor voices.
The cover of the original sheet music shows a mirrored pair of smiling, white-suited, pipe-smoking young men balanced in the inverted position on the index finger of one hand whilst the other hand is employed in politely raising their hats. Now that is indeed eccentric!
That Eccentric Rag was published by Seidel Music Pub. Co. Inc., Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
