In 2011, the 50th Year that the St. Louis Ragtimers had been playing as a group, we released some archived audio and video recordings. This LIVE! audio recording from the final set of the 1979 Goldenrod Showboat Ragtime Festival was located among the many hundreds of hours of recordings made by Don Franz. This session is special because it was recorded in the Captain's Bar with better acoustics than the big concert hall. Many of the bands' self-tapings did not record the vocals effectively.. but again, we were lucky with this one. The set ran exactly the right length to fill a traditional vinyl "LP", which makes us all wish this recording had been discovered 30 years ago.
