Seriously, it's good to have this stuff in notation even if it is not a "scores" book.

Just curious (if anybody happens to read this again) what it would mean to have a "'scores book'" mentioned above as opposed to this book.  Thanks.

I don't have this book and haven't seen it, but based on the question, I'm guessing this is the difference.

MOST songbooks you buy are not the original, full arrangements. They display things like chord charts and often what is called a piano reduction of the music. In other words, it is simplified from bass, drums, piano, guitar(s), organ, trumpet, or whatever else, to be playable on just piano (or, if following chords, guitar).

A book containing scores would actually fully notate everything separately on its original instrument. A trumpet line would be written on a separate staff of music, notated for trumpet. An organ part gets its two staves. A piano part gets its two staves. Every vocal is listed, and so on. It would be impossible for any one person, then, to sit down and play on the piano (unless that person is skilled enough to do an ad hoc piano reduction in his or her head), but it is fun for anyone who is interested in the details of arrangement, or who is putting together a band to perform it.

There is a complete scores version of the entire Beatles output. It is great.
