This collection represents a cross-section of Confrey's works and encompasses the broad range of his styles. Besides his famous 1920s novelty works (including "Kitten on the Keys"), there are many wonderful, lesser-known gems of remarkable quality included here from later in his career. Appearing for the first time in print are transcriptions of one of his disc recordings ("Poor Buttermilk") and two of his player piano roll arrangements ("My Pet" and "Humorestless"). Many of Confrey's later works have long been out of print and are included here for the first time in decades.
