Frog's Legs Rag is a classic Rag composed by James Scott, a contemporary of Scott Joplin, and was published in 1906.

It was James Scott's first commercial success, and embarked him upon a career as a successful and important songwriter.

I recollect hearing this piece being played on the radio way back in the mid 1950's by Sid Phillips' Band , he was a well known British clarinetist, he also recorded it on a H.M.V. Record.
