This is the earliest surviving recording of Scott Joplin’s “Maple Leaf Rag.”
We'd love to hear from you! If you have any information about U.S. Marine Band or about U.S. Marine Band's recordings, please leave a comment.
My great grandfather was in the USMC Band from 1900-1906…James Selbicky.
Paula – Thanks for your note! Do you know what instrument he played? The Maple Leaf Rag recording we have here was recorded in 1906. Any chance he would have been part of that project?
He played the violin. Just doing some research and saw your response (which I hadn’t seen before).
