Wondering if anyone knows about this book "Bill Knopf's 5-String Ragtime - Classic Rags of Scott Joplin" or if it's still possible to purchase? I found his website and if you click to purchase the book, it basically just sends you to paypal where you can send money. The website hasn't been updates since 2006. billknopft.com I don't want to just send money to an inactive paypal, so I'm wondering if anyone knows if he is indeed still active on there, or if there is another way to find the book? It is "currently unavailable" on Amazon.

Well, it's a bit more than that.  He's using PayPal as his shopping cart. So it's not only "send money" but you see on PayPal what it is you're buying.  PayPal gives you buyer protection.  I'd be confident ordering.

But if you need more confidence, his site has a Contact page that says you can email Bill at: billknopf@billknopf.com

What a coincidence! As I read this post I was recording cassette tape of this book. I bought these when he first put them out (the 80's?) and haven't played them in 25 years or more. Amazingly, the tape is in great shape and plays like new. I was just regretting I no longer had the book to go with them and now know where to get it. Thanks.
