      You're right, Adam! Those recordings by Roberts come from that CD (I
      agree Sutton did better recordings elsewhere).
      Unfortunately, the recording by Euday Bowman I uploaded for the group
      is the only one I have. I read about some other recordings by Bowman
      in a site (here's the link:
      http://www.hensteeth.com/e_discog/euday.html )
      I like very much Euday Bowman's playing, but I think I prefer Brun
      Campbell, who is less accurate but can improvise more and has a great
      bounciness in his playing.
      Thank you very much for the precious information about the issue of
      Marshall's recordings of 1959: it seems that he played the last
      strain of "Little Jack's Rag" and another unidentified tune.
      Terry Waldo had a disc of recordings by Arthur Marshall, but that was
      destroyed by the postal service (!); fortunately, it seems the about
      one minute of the disc is save and still listenable (I hope it'll be
      included in that issue by Waldo).
      If there's interest, I can try to upload for the group ragtime
      recordings by Brun Campbell, Will Ezell, Mike Bernard, Charlie
      Thompson, Arnold Wiley, Roy Spangler, Dink Johnson...
      Sorry for the very long message!
      In the Red Hot Jazz Archive site there's a rag played by a pianist
      called Sonny Clay in 1925. The title is "Punishing The Piano" and it
      requires realplayer to be heard.
      Here's the link:
      This rollicking performance makes me think that according to Charlie
      Thompson, Artie Matthews was the fastest pianist he ever heard.
