        An absolute MUST for ALL Wizard Of Oz fans. The book not only has all the music from the film (plus one that was written but never used (which is just as good as the other pieces), but it also has a fantastic write up all about the original film as well as superb colour and black and white pictures included. Definitely well worth the money!!! I would suggest though that as it is, it is not suitable for beginner/novices to try to play along with the music tracks on the cd at 1st as the music is all very fast and may put off potential players - but you can download a slow down software to slow the music down to play (you just need to search for a suitable one on the internet, I recommend Riff Master Pro as its so simple and fast to use)
