What's worse is that, if these are songs based on early ragtime banjo music, then they've been reinterpreted so completely that any "ragtime" sound has been totally obliterated. And, um, I bought it because I *like* the original ragtime sound.
Maybe someone at the factory put the wrong label on the wrong (and, to review, faulty) cd and put it in the jewel case based on the label. I sort of hope that's what happened.
But this isn't a keeper. I hope other people have a better experience and can review the cd on its merits.
