Ok for VERY early beginners...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rolling Stone Easy Piano Sheet Music Classics, Vol 1: 39 Selections from the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (Paperback)
I purchased this and volume II to play and sing with friends when we get together. The arrangements are painfully easy (as in the treble is the melody exclusively); I would not buy this unless you are quite new to piano or like to improvise. Most of the songs are so watered down that they are no longer very fun to play or sing. Also, the binding is TERRIBLE. You have to practically break the book in half to get it to stay open, even my music clip wasn't helping very much. The plus side is you can sightread all of these songs perfectly, so you don't need to worry about running through them ahead of time.

I think all the "negative" points you listed are actually positive points for someone like me who is an intermediate player and just want to have a bit of fun playing my fave songs now and then. I had a look at the contents and disagree with you on the point that it is for VERY early beginners actually... more easy playing than beginners...
