There are no songs like Irving's Songs June 21 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an extremely detailed, but yet interesting book that examines the songs of Irving Berlin. The number of his compositions is amazing and of course includes so many are still standards; 'A Pretty Girl', `God Bless America,' `Alexander's Ragtime Band', `The girl that I Marry". The list could go on and on.

Jeffrey Magee combines elements of Berlin's life with detailed, but a still interesting analysis of Berlin's music. There are fascinating facts, such as why he put `God Bless America' aside for a while. An excellent job is done of describing his values and motivations in writing the songs he did.

There are black and white pictures throughout, facsimiles of his sheet music, tables and lists, an extensive bibliography, a short discography and an index.
The output of Irving Berlin was amazing and this book does an excellent job in examining it and also includes some biographical facts along the way, from his birth and becoming a US citizen and then drafted into the army in 1918. It is a remarkable collection of musical memories.

Irving Berlin, Close Up May 30 2013
By Bill Betts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Irving Berlin's American Musical Theater (Broadway Legacies) What a beautiful book! Magee is a fine, a very fine, writer, engaging, unpretentious, careful. His exhaustive research, his obvious love for the songs of Irving Berlin, and his grasp of the history of America's musical theater have produced a most impressive and trustworthy account of one of America's most productive, most accomplished, and most widely loved song writers. Readers of his book? Well, "They Say It's Wonderful."
