With this Rio Reiser Songbook
, the monument that was Rio Reiser
is done justice. This is not just a book with which to play his songs, but it is a fitting tribute to a giant of the German rock music industry.
The book has been lavishly and lovingly created, featuring diverse arrangements, some with lyrics and chords, some in Piano, Vocal and Guitar and some in ensemble and orchestral arrangements. Not only this, but the Songbook features many photographs, drawings, manuscripts and anecdotes, giving life to this luxurious tome.
There have been few such legendary and authentic personalities in the German music scene, but Rio Reiser has left a lasting impression and an iconic mythos behind. As main singer and lyricist for the band Ton Steine Scherben, he began a meteoric rise to international fame.
With transcriptions and arrangements by his former guitarist Lutz Kerschowski, this Rio Reiser Songbook is an authoritative and fitting tribute to the man himself.
