Amen to that, Brother!
The legal editions have a bunch of misprints and even have some tunes in non-traditional keys. Because of these problems, this edition stinks on real gigs. Big selection (including a bunch of junk) with very mediocre editing.
Besides, I actually LIKE purchasing music out of the trunk of some guy's car - is makes the book feel like so much more of a find when you finally get it!
