Powder Rag written under the pseudonym of Raymond Birch reputedly sold more than a million copies up along there together with Dill Pickles (1906). A fine Johnson rag indeed! It fairly bubbles along no doubt in tune to the coy young beauty a-powdering her proboscis as depicted on the cover of the original sheet music.
Powder Rag was published by Chas. L. Johnson Publishing Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 160 crotchets/min. is suggested.
