“That International Rag” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music for the song “That International Rag” was composed by Irving Berlin, and published by the Waterson, Berlin, and Snyder Company in New York, New York, in 1913. “That International Rag,” was composed by Berlin on his tour to England. After a disastrous press conference where Berlin gave the false impression he had no musical talent, he composed this tune overnight, and played it to great success the next day at London’s Hippodrome. The cover shows Uncle Sam conducting a choir of various nationalities in the tune, with an inset image of actress Goldie Moore.
