Description by OLDIES.com:
Collecting rock and roll sheet music is an excellent (and different) way to enjoy popular songs -- and you don't have to know how to read music! This lively look at the songs and fashions that were all the rage in the Swingin Sixties is presented through over 630 color photos of sheet music from that remarkable decade. Many offer seldom-seen images of the band or recording artist and often include facts about the song composer or album as well. Popular styles such as Motown, R&B, surf, pop, and garage rock are represented, all from memorable groups like The Rolling Stones, Monkees, Beach Boys, Supremes, Doors, and of course, The Beatles. Collector hints, musical facts, and trivia appear along with current values, an index, and rare, foreign printings from the United Kingdom, Australia, and Italy. You'll be humming along and tapping your foot as you turn the pages of this nostalgic and visually exciting book!
