Product Details


Sixty of the best songs of the early rock era, all chosen from Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. The songs are from the 1950s to the '60s, arranged for piano/vocal/chords. Many of these great songs were previously available only as "old-time" sheet music editions that did not accurately portray the classic recordings that made them famous. In preparing this songbook, Alfred Music took great care to revisit those recordings, replacing incorrect arrangements with new ones that allow pianists and singers to perform the songs in the style that landed them on the Rolling Stone 500. Also available: Rolling Stone Sheet Music Classics, Volume 2: 1970s--1990s. Similar editions are available arranged for easy guitar TAB, wind, and string instruments. Songs vary per instrument.
