In addition to bearing the venerable Reader's Digest name, this collection has a great selection of songs which make it one of the best patriotic/Americana PV collections available today!

Each of the forty pieces also appears in the book in fresh, new intermediate piano and piano/vocal arrangements. Many pieces include chord names, and guitar chord charts are shown in a special index. A foreword also gives the interesting history behind each song.

    While I like all the selections, I was expecting the music to be "Advanced". This is good for an intermediate, but not what I was looking for. The CD's are wonderful, though.
