        Good selection of music and good arrangements
        The binding is terrible, had to copy pages to be able to play them as book doesn't stay open. The book is half the thickness of Playalong 50/50 PopHits which has a similar number of pieces.
        Don't think the demo track has a live sax playing sounds a bit synthed to me - however still better than some Hal Leonard playalongs that have the awful xylophone, or whatever it is, bonging along

        Great selection of tunes with some suitable for beginners and others for the intermediate and advanced players. High quality backing tracks with separate demo tracks. Great additional material on the supplied data disk like PDF piano accompaniment parts.
        Nothing of note.
