Her partner designed logos in colored plexiglass – I was her second client; her first was Neal Diamond. His logo showed two triangles – the top one was light blue, the bottom one was dark blue – a circle intersected the two triangles — the top half of the circle was bright yellow (the sun), the bottom half was white (the moon).

This book is quite comprehensive and contains about 890 pages of lyrics to the musicals I play, and the shows are all arranged alphabetically. It also contains all the songs I play within each show arranged by the order that I play them, so there is no flipping back and forth, or losing your place while trying to read the lyrics on your phone.
