The Bolo Rag is a ragtimer's delight. Gumble respectfully dedicated this rag to a certain Miss Marion Hauver - whoever she may have been is lost in the ragtime history of a century ago. This is an effervescent composition in a sort of sonata form of AABBACCA with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar coda written in C-major excepting the C-strain which is in F-major. It would be nice to know how this rag got its title: is it anything to do with Argentine gouchos, the US armed forces or did Gumble actually coin the phrase "Be on the lookout"? Who knows?
A tempo of 76 crotchets/min. is suggested.
The Bolo Rag was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
There is also a tenor solo version of this item.
