I bought this book having bought a number of similar titles, in an effort to learn some of the this great music produced in the States before the WWII. I wasn't dissappointed; there so many quality and seminal pieces here. They are all accurately transcribed with largely original recordings on the CDs. The variety is immense with blues from the delta style, Chicago as well as slide and open tuning pieces. I know of no publication comparable in breadth and quality. Although perhaps not for the absolute beginner, there is also a range of difficulty.
