Who knows if this book is even still in print. Part of the treasure trove I received after my Grandfather passed. Will the family finally record some four-shape tracks??

An extensive selection, accompanied by Ritchie's personal memories or info re the songs, and photographs as well. Mine's autographed, Whee!
