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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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...
