GB Very amateur pianist singer
Overall excellent. Good to have the music and words to some of the wittiest songs ever written.
Small point. The extended words are often on pages separate from the music, making it harder to sing along.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating A great addition to any singer's library! This title is perfect for adding a lighter touch to any concert programme. On the down side, the quality of the binding leaves alot to be desired. Ten minutes on a piano music stand and the pages will come out. Nice illustrations.

Customer Rating Fantastic songs, clearly laid out, fun and interesting foreward by Donald Swann. Well worth it.

Customer Rating A definitive collection of songs, lovingly collected and edited. I don't feel I can give this 5 stars though as the layout makes this edition unsuitable for performing from, particularly in songs with several verses where the music and lyrics are printed on separate pages. Also it would have been nice to include transciptions of the pre-song banter that was as much a part of Flanders and Swann's act as the songs themselves.

Customer Rating What a brilliant song-book. I loved it from the moment I opened it. A fantastic book of funny and satirical humour.

Customer Rating Nicely presented book, a comprehensive collection of their work. Very nice cartoons as well very playable

Customer Rating It is exactly what it purports to be, and my accompanist was very happy.

The illustrations are just the icing on the cake - and (importantly) are laid out so as not to get in the way if one has to quickly play the things or learn the lyrics.

I'm very happy with this songbook.
