  • 2009-01-05 00:00:00.0 I enjoy it, BUT. . . . .

    I couldn't find another way to get such a big collection of Sammy's hits. It's fun to play. So far I've found no obvious errors in the melody lines or harmonies. I have 2 minor frustrations. 1) The way the book is bound is more like...

    a coffee table magazine than a sheet music book. Once on the music rack it wants to close itself, or at least turn its own pages in a random order due to the rigid binding. I play this one as a medley and had to use many paper clips to mark my pages. Even at that sometimes the pages still turn by themselves at the wrong time. 2) The songs tend to be in related keys, which make medley playing less interesting. At least a few things should have been in Eb or some such key.
