I've been fascinated with music for over 50 years, and this is hands down my favorite book. Out of the 100 pieces, I only found one arrangement that I felt couldn't have been the original because there were too many wrong notes. This is page after page of excellent original sheet music of really great popular pieces of the era. I couldn't give a higher recommendation to this book. Buy it, love it!
My only regret is I can't find books of this quality of original sheet music of other eras. But this is by far my favorite era, and I play out of this book constantly.
Another thing I liked about the book, is that the pieces are pretty much in alphabetical order, and placed in such an order that it's easier to turn the pages when playing or, when possible, not have to turn the pages at all.
