Comments about Hal Leonard The Ultimate Rock Pop Fake Book for C Instruments:
Firstly, I think the publisher did the best they could with the binding, but you should know if you're just 20-30 pages in it won't lay flat; however, the binding looks very durable in that it is spiral bound and that is then encased in plastic. I have had a lot of spiral bound books get their binding crushed or become dysfunctional in other ways causing the book to start falling apart. With a little care that won't happen here.
To say this fake book has a lot of hits and easily recognizable titles is an understatement; however, I did notice there are some glaring omissions that likely are due to not being able come to agreeable terms with the copyright holders. For example there doesn't seem to be anything from the Jackson Five or Micheal Jackson, which was just noted off the top of my head. If your curious or concerned over what is/isn't in it, consult the Hal Leonard website for a full list.
I also noted that there were more than a few titles from other genres that were hits that maybe were a bit of a stretch to call Pop or Rock. Examples of this were two I spotted that were folk songs made famous by the Kingston Trio, some country songs sung by Alabama, Kenny Rodgers, Dolly Parton, etc.
To conclude, I have to say this is a solid foundation stone to purchase to start building a rock and pop library.
