There was a very fine boxed LP set of Dick Hyman playing Joplin in the 1970s and this appears to be a re-issue of some of those tracks, with three pieces played by James Levine also. Hyman's set made a light and lively alternative to Rifkin's readings, back in the 1970s. it's good that some of these tracks are available again, on this CD. The piano and the recorded sound are good. Worth having.
