Customer Rating This book was just what I was looking for. It has all the best songs of the 50's and I have enjoyed using it both for the guitar and the piano. Definately worth buying!

Customer Rating Took me straight back to my teenage years. Excellent book. Good for novice or advanced players.

Customer Rating This is an excellent book with a lot of the best songs of the '50s. If you remember this era or even if you don't, it is worth buying this book.
