Good collection with accessible but bland arrangements

Comments about Hal Leonard Irving Berlin Anthology 2nd Edition arranged for piano, vocal, and guitar (P/V/G):

The songs in this collection are among Berlin's best. I was pleased so see such a fine variety of well-known and some lesser known tunes from America's greatest songsmith. My only complaint is that some of the textures are a bit thin. I compared the original edition of the novelty song "You'd Be Surprised" and found the verse is missing which is a shame because it is vital to the story in this song and adds greatly to the humor. Also, as in many of the arrangements in this anthology, the original had fuller harmonies provided by the familiar technique of using broken chords in the left hand. This editor usually opted for a single bass note (rather than the octaves) on the down beats and the off beats are either missing or played by the right hand in the alto range. While this may make the arrangements slightly easier to play it sacrifices the fullness and rhythmic vitality and drive of the original. There is also a penchant for tenths in the left had which most people will need to roll. This is really not any easier that using a broken chord which would provide more movement and energy. As with most of these Hal Leonard publications the notes are clear and easy to read and the book is sturdily bound. It does not lay as flat as one would hope but I personally do not care for spiral bindings which do lay flat so I hope that, in time, the spine will flex a bit more without the pages falling out.
