    I found the sheet music worthwhile, very much what I was looking for. The arrangements are good, overall. Of course the problem for singers is the wide vocal range, which is usually too high for bass-baritones like me. But that's not unusual in the genre. I particularly enjoyed...

    the piano arrangement for "I Honestly Love you", which seems to be the same as Olivia Newton-John's well known version. Most songs are co-written, often with Carole Bayer-Sager. I enjoyed the level of sophistiaction of the songs, which is maybe not what I had previously associated with Peter Allen's music. Still can't master playing whilst standing on the stool!

    At first, there are a few songs missing, but what's really disappointing is that the songs are completly different from the Musical, they even have the original Peter Allen lyrics. I guess this book would be alright, if they wouldn't sell it under "The Boy from Oz" with...

    Hugh Jackman, but as a Peter Allen Songbook.

  • 2005-07-17 00:00:00.0 Incredible Songbook!

    For those looking for sheet music for certain Peter Allen songs, such as Continental American, Love Crazy, She Loves to Hear the Music, Sure Thing, Baby, Tenterfield Saddler, Waltzing Matilda, or When I Get My Name In Lights, then THIS is the songbook to get! I fell in love with...

    "She Loves to Hear the Music" as I totally identify with that song. When the Vocal Selections came out, I bought it despite the fact that this particular song was not within. When I saw the show, I happened to see this book, which had my song in it, and purchased it! If a fan of Peter Allen, or the show, I suggest that you purchase both books, then you have nearly every song in the show, despite doubling on many songs. My only quibble with both books is that "Once Before I Go" is NOT in either book, and is one of Peter’s most poignant, heart-felt songs, which got the 5-minute standing ovation after every performance. It was not even the final song as "I Go to Rio" had that honor.
