Lyle plays all of the numbers from this book on the included CD. Many have back-up acoustic bass lines, which I wouldn't be surprised if he had laid down himself. He does not sing, though you could do if you can manage it while doing the solos; the words are all there. The CD is good, and you can hear some additional strumming and picking effects which are not written in the book or explained, but could be copied by an experienced player with a good ear.
If you are a rank beginner, or nearly so, I recommend sticking with some method books and easy songbooks to start off. I will be posting five 'ukulele book reviews in the next few days, and will try to give you a good idea what the pros and cons are of each.
If you are an intermediate player and you want to start moving all over the neck - this book will give you tons of practice and many ideas. Many of the chord voicings are lush and quite beautiful. This is also a good book to learn if you want to play the other Lyle Ritz books.
The other books also contain tab for baritone, which I don't use. A plus for this book is that it seems to me to have clearer tab than the other books which show chord positions but aren't always clear. I'm taking one star off because this book should have real tab and not just chord charts.
The CD is helpful if you can't quite figure out what it should sound like. On the whole for this book I didn't find it necessary.
The arrangements make quite a bit of use of frets up the neck like 10 and 12. i find them pretty tricky to play on a 12 fret soprano and suggest they are easier with a long neck soprano or a concert or tenor.
