    good, old Jimmie Biggs

    Who remembers EPB dressed up in his Revolutionary War costume on the cover of that record album,
    consisting of patriotic works, some of which were quite unknown. His mother nick-named him Jimmie
    and only other organists or organ builders used the name, later. Virgil Fox once referred to EPB as
    Jimmie and so did organ builder, Walter Holtkamp, in his well-known "Jimmie, me boy . . ." comment.

    He will always be "Mister Biggs" to me. Although after that donation of the Flentrop organ to Harvard, he should have had an honorary doctorate, at least. He certainly did enough original things to earn a doctorate, IMHO. If Ralph Stanley can go around calling himself "Doctor Stanley", E. P. Biggs is at least as important. Though probably Ralph sold more records.

            Scott Joplin's "A Real Slow Drag" is one of the titles on the album.
