Dumfries GB Music fan of everything
Ideal for reminiscing with people who remember the music of the 40's. This is how I have used the book in a local care home.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This was just what I wanted. The selection is of popular music with which most people who were around in the 40s will be familiar. The piano parts recall the mood of the music accurately but are not over-complex and any competent player should be able to play them.
I already have similar books of 30s music and 50s music which I use for light concerts in my local area, but I was missing the 40s music, which is now most appropriate for the members of the local day centres and sheltered housing.
I now have plenty of music between them to put together a range of varied concerts.

Customer Rating Good selection of songs and some very good arrangements with nice chords and chord sequences.

Customer Rating Easily 5 stars!

Customer Rating This is the fourth music book of "100 Years of Popular Music" series that I have bought.
As with my first three books,this one is full of all the memorable songs of it's period. Any one looking to buy a music book of songs from this era, must secure this treasure. I'm sure that nobody will be disappointed.


Customer Rating An excellent anthology. It really helped in developing a 6 hour stint, for a help4heroes/VE day event.

Customer Rating Give it another star, best I ever received from you. Just my cup of tea
