        Farnham GB Author with pianist detective
        Thrilled to get this book and play tunes I never knew were by Eric Coates
        I would have liked to have known which of the tunes had been signature tunes to various radio programmes in the because I recognise the tunes as signature tunes but can't remember how they were used other than obviously the Dam Busters, but this is simply a slight annoyance rather than a bad point.

        The crispness of print is a little disappointing - almost as though it is a photocopy of an old copy

        This is an excellent book with score which give a clear representation of orchestral pieces, delightfully scored for keyboards
