Many many many standard and non-standard tunes in here! Great source of music for bands and soloists alike! Classic Tunes, Essential Repertoire, April 1st, 2011 12:16 pm

It's amazing how much of the piping repertoire is covered by these 2 volumes. The tunes run the gamut of complexity and it's fun just to page through in idle moments to pick out a familiar melody. I hold my copies of these very dearly and wouldn't trade them for anything! , January 18th, 2011 12:02 pm

When you are relatively new to piping and looking to start collecting tune books - there is no doubt this is the starting point. Great collection of amazing composers, Willie Ross, GS McLellan, Donald MacLeod - all the essentials for any marching band set you could want. , December 2nd, 2010 09:42 pm

Buy volume one before buying any other music collection. Then, when you can, buy volume two. Old Standards, October 30th, 2008 10:05 pm
