P., a very little light cover soil mostly on rear cover, text looks to have been printed from a computer, for binding the text block is neatly taped into the covers, the free front flyleaf has either been removed or the book was bound with only a short tab where it would have been as the title page was taped in separately, contents clean and tight, book very good {There is no actual music in this book so I am not sure what Craig S. Matthews contributed. The text is in dialect and appears to be a rewriting of the beginning of Genesis. Here is the beginning of the book: "Well ya see, hits lack dish'ere. Et de fuss day wasn' nethin. Dat is, nethin sep de Awmighty Lawd with darkness pult up ova on 'is face lack a sheet, en quiet all pack down en 'is ears lack bale cotton."} (VG) 3113 [Hl63HGW]
