Dawn's New Ragtime Follies is a 1973 album by the American pop group Tony Orlando and Dawn. This release was a concept album that successfully combined Vaudevillian ragtime flavors with pop and disco music. With multi-generational appeal, and aided by Tony Orlando & Dawn's highly successful weekly TV variety show on CBS, DAWN'S NEW RAGTIME FOLLIES sold millions and became Tony Orlando & Dawn’s best selling LP. NEW RAGTIME FOLLIES spawned the best-selling singles "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose," "Who’s in the Strawberry Patch With Sally" and "Steppin’ Out (Gonna Boogie Tonight.") Telma Hopkins is featured on lead vocals for a cover of John Sebastian's "Daydream", which was a hit for the Lovin' Spoonful in 1966. A recent compact disc reissue of the album contains four bonus tracks, "Jolie", "Personality", Come Back Billie Jo", and a slightly varied single version of "Steppin’ Out."
