The Rodney Graham Songbook

description

This artists' book, by Rodney Graham, blurs the line between visual art and music by compiling 37 songs from his CDs and records and transcribes them into sheet music with notations for piano, guitar tablature and lyrics. The form is that of a popular songbook, featuring images of the artist, his band and new artwork. The material includes "The Bed Bug," "Love Buzz, And Other Short Songs in the Popular Idiom," "Getting it Together in the Country," "Rock is Hard," and "Never Tell a Pal A Hard Luck Story." Includes audio CD of rare covers and two brand new tracks.
