    For those too young to remember the 50's & 60's, note that when you bought rock & roll sheet music back then you were usually disappointed: the arrangement sounded nothing like the record. This book appears to be a collection of that type of material. The four chords that go...

    with "Heart & Soul" are noted by their symbols above the treble clef but there's nothing to indicate how they should be played: it should be on the base clef instead of the very simple base pattern given. "Come Go With Me" has none of the dom-dom-dom-dom-etc. background that should be with it. Similarly for "Blue Moon". In general, the piano right hand is written for an late intermediate but the left hand is written for beginner and the notes - one at a time - are very sparse. I'm sorry I was fooled by the title!
