  • November 14, 2008 I love this music!

    I just love this music. The reasons being I have done this show and hold it in a special place and it is just a great show. Great job on getting some great songs that were meant for multiple people and triming them down so a guy like me can...

    sing all of these songs with my heart content lol.

  • March 06, 2007 Big River, Roger Miller's music......Joy

    Roger Miller was the perfect person to create the music for this musical, Big River. Huckleberry Finn and Jim are such appealing characters, and the music and lyrics are abundantly appropriate to their characters. Mark Twain would love it, and it deserves to be heard by a larger audience. The...

    music is not difficult!

  • May 09, 2004 Great Book

    It is rare that the vocal selections to Broadway shows match the recording very well... this is an exception. This book matches the original cast recording almost perfectly, so there is no guessing on how to play the music. Wonderful music throughout-- country ballads and gospel numbers are showcased best...

    here, as well as the hilarious 'hillbilly' tunes (Guv'ment-- sung by John Goodman on the recording-- and Hand for the Hog, among others). Must have for any theatre music fans/players/singers... in my opinion, the best score to come out of the 80's (yes, over "Cats", "Les Miserables" and "The Phantom of the Opera").

  • February 01, 2002 Enjoy!

    This musical rocks!!!! I strongly encourage anyone with a love for musical theatre to check this book out, because it is SO EXCELLENT! It contains all the songs worth having from the show. However, it lacks the harmony parts for the singers, and the accompaniments have been simplified. While making...

    all the songs easy to play, this seriously takes away from the effect that they have on the CD!
