The first publication dedicated to songs written and composed by Ian over the last 40 years, starting with his 1965 smash hit, "You Turn Me On". The book includes his many styles ranging from Nashville country numbers ("Hands") and British comedy songs ("Wurzel Fudge", written for Benny Hill) to personal ballads "Old Friends", and his latest batch of songs--from waltz to rumba -- reflecting his life as an expatriate Englishman living in Southern California. Ian plays piano, accordion and ukulele as well as singing. The book provides top line melodies plus chord symbols for keyboard, guitar and ukulele. The accompanying CD is a treasure trove of commercial recordings of all the songs, including releases on Capitol Records and Warner Bros. Records. Other vocals are by Debbie Dawn, Corky Mayberry, and Regina Whitcomb. There's also a full description of how these songs came to be written, as well as an essay about Ian's famous uncle who wrote such evergreens as "Lady of Spain" and "Let's All Sing Like The Birdies Sing". This book takes the player inside the eclectic musical world of this Renaissance Man whom has risen from Teen Idol to Grammy Award winner, respected musicologist and author.
