Arthur Marshall considered Kinklets to amongst his best rags. And why Kinklets as a title? Well, Marshall thought there were some "kinks" in the music, hence the title and the extraordinary cover on the original sheet music. This is a lively straightforward classic rag having a 4-bar introduction followed by four 16-bar repeated sections divided by a 4-bar passage. That this recorder adaptation is completely lacking in ornamentation, phrasing marks, dynamics etc. lies in the fact that Marshall himself gave none - not even the usual Not fast. This seems to suggest that when this piece was written, ragtime was in its heyday and the whole musical world knew how to perform his music.
Kinklets was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Justine Thornley, recorder player, Fremantle, Western Australia.
