This long-established anthology, compiled by Sandburg and "his friends from coast to coast and from the Gulf to Canada, " contains singable words and music--complete harmonizations or piano accompniments--to 290 songs, ...

A Good Book for Singers

by MK24 on Nov 19, 2009

This book is lovely if you are looking for less common American songs (there are more familiar ones as well, but it's strength lies in the songs which you can't find elsewhere). I bought it because it has sheet music as well as lyrics, though I have not yet used the music and thus cannot comment on the quality. I do like the information about the history of the songs.

Americana to Remember!

by BGowan on Apr 11, 2008

If you are an admirer of older American Folk songs and other early music this is a must have. I have the 1955 edition and have used the 1991 edition as well and find it an inspiration to my playing.
