Composed by James Siddons. 20th Century,Concert,Holiday,Patriotic,Ragtime. Score. 28 pages. James Siddons Music and Writings #3093009. Published by James Siddons Music and Writings (A0.972640).

This composition, by composer, pianist, and musicologist James Siddons, is neither an arrangement nor a medley. Rather, it is a kind of historical re-construction; one that imagines how a typical piano rag of before 1905 would have sounded when performed by a skillful vernacular pianist as a virtuoso improvisation. A Million Buffalo Roam is a historical re-construction that gives some idea of how an improvising ragtime pianist of circa 1904-1906 would have performed Tom Turpin's "Buffalo Rag," "Home On the Range," and the "Star-Spangled Banner" as an extended virtuosic display. It is a representation of a little-documented performance practice. After improvisatory passages on the three themes of "The Buffalo Rag" are heard individually, they are combined with the tunes of "Home On the Range" and the "Star-Spangled Banner," including one passage in which "Home On the Range" and the "Star-Spangled Banner" are played simultaneously, combined with the accompaniment patterns of "Buffalo Rag."  Also available as a piano duet/ensemble with Conductor's Score.
