A collection of ten popular classics, from 'My Way' to 'When I Fall In Love'. The music book contains piano and voice arrangements with lyrics and guitar chord boxes. The accompanying CD contains full backing tracks for use in rehearsal or at auditions.
A good selection of songs with a range of styles allowing quite a lot of freedom of interpretation.
This book is well suited for singing training, which is why I bought it - I'm no singer, but I'm increasingly needed for backing vocals in the bands I work with.
The accompanying CD contains well recorded synthesised (but good sounding) backing tracks.
The only real disappointment I have is that 'Mack the Knife' doesn't change up key at all - to my mind this ruins the point of the song, though I acknowledge this would make it much harder to sing in terms of range.
I also purchased some 'you take the lead' books, which in terms of tracks are slightly superior, but require a higher level of ability. Anonymous
