The CD is well thought-out and organized. The CD musical accompaniment quality is good -- not the terrible midi tones you get with some sheet music. Each song has the recorded "demo" version of the song, then another track with the "play along" version, which is like the "demo" version without the cello.
I deducted one star because the CD failed at track 29. I tried it on three different computers, and could only access the first 28 tracks. I emailed the publisher (Alfred)recently and am waiting to hear back. Even withouth the last few tracks, I was able to access the music for the most popular songs. These included "Star Wars main theme," The Imperial March, and Across the Stars.
++++ Update 6/17/2011 ++++ I recieved an email and a replacement book from Alfred. The CD in the replacement book was flawless. Very good customer service.
I would highly recommend this book.
It's a little disappointing to see some memorable themes from the classic trilogy are absent in favor of some fairly forgettable prequel pieces. This is personal opinion, though. Surely, Yoda's theme was at least more interesting than Anakin's theme, and March of the Ewoks, The Asteroid Field and the Han & Leia love theme from ESB were much more interesting pieces than some of the things that were included in this collection.
All in all, fun stuff, though.
