Hummm: appears not, But then again on some bandstands in my era it seemed 
like ragtime was a crime.  I have not seen anyone releasing the Great MacDowell 
songbook reissues yet, but then again perhaps I missed it as well as the rest 
of life prior to 1944.

Damned, Berlin,!

I have also been trying but not succeeding to miss the Rap era as well.

Anybody on the list got any Rap Charts for sale?
