5.0 out of 5 stars Three thumbs up! Feb. 19 2003
Format:Plastic Comb
An excellent resource with, as the wordy title implies, over 1200 standard and not so standard songs. This book has a great selection of songs, covering a wide range of material. Great for weddings and other gigs, there are plenty of songs in here that should cover a variety of shows. This may not be the one and only book you'll ever need to cover all your gigs, but it will probably quickly become your most referenced source. This is a highly respected book among gigging musicians, and it will pay for itself many times over.
This new edition is updated with yet another selection of current and classic tunes. Included in each song is the melody line, the chords, and the lyrics written for piano, vocal, guitar, and all "B Flat" instruments. This book even includes charts for over 855 guitar chords, as well as 9 different classified song listings. Great collection, well worth the price. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Essentials are missing in the description May 13 2011
Format:Plastic Comb
This is not a rating, but I can't comment unless I rate it. This is my general peeve about music books.

What we need to know is:

1. Does it contain LYRICS with all songs?
2. Does it show all the CHORDS with all songs?
3. Does it show the KEY that the songs are in?

The descriptions with song books either are written by people who know nothing about music, or they know so much about it that they have forgotten what the occasional musician and the beginner need to know. In both cases elementary information is left out. I hope someone will read this and make sure that this info (and more) is added to the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Songs, Great Memories! Nov. 10 2013
By Kris
Format:Plastic Comb
A Lot of the complaints about this and many other fakebooks are that, the songs don't contain the instrumental parts or are not written the way the artist wrote them. This is why it's called a fakebook. The essence of the fakebook is so you learn how to improvise on the piano and try to go by ear, a very great skill for fellow musicians. The setlist is fantastic! Much better than most books. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Here's the thing.... May 28 2013
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
Amazing book, tons of tunes to play - well 1200+.

However, I find that too many of the songs dates way 1950's and earlier. There are simply not enough "modern" songs in there. Still a great book though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners Nov. 13 2012
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
Very good book but not recommended for beginners. Intermediate and higher for playing on keyboards. For guitar is o.k., for singers very good. Great choice of songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars GIGANTIC June 8 2012
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
This book is HUGE!! It contains tunes primarily from the 40's and earlier. However, the book is too big to place on a music stand (at least the inexpensive, flimsy one that I have!!) And it takes two people to carry it cuz it's so heavy!!
But still worth the money...

5.0 out of 5 stars playing the piano all the time now July 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Plastic Comb
First I bought singing lessons on CD, "Voice lessons TO GO" by Vaccarino, and did them religiously for a couple of months. I had been playing piano as an adult for 2 years, so I bought this book. Yey! It is so great I can play and sing my favorite tunes. And my Chord changes are getting so much smoother with myt eachers help. Because I want to be singing these songs, I am finding myself playing the piano all the time now.
