A comprehensive collection of Don Francisco's songs thus far, the songbook contains 30 songs in all - pretty good value for Don Francisco fans. The songs are clearly laid out and easy to read. All but two ("He's Alive" and "Beautiful To Me" vocal line and guitar chords only) have a vocal line with piano accompaniment - single but effective in the main - and guitar chords above. All of the contents are very rooted in 'Country', many with melancholy, story-telling lyrics and sometimes rather repetitive music to match. Within the collection though are some poignant ballads such as "Give Your Heart A Home" which are well worth more than a glance by "non" 'Country/Folksy' fans.
