Its all very confusing. I was told by my jazz instructor to get the "illegal" real book, because it is the good one, meaning not the Hal Leonard version. Supposedly the "Illegal" real book was just made legal. Where can I find the actual "illegal" (not Hal Leonard) real book?

I think he means the "New Real Book," by Sher publishing.

Yeah I've heard of that one. Is it all hand written just like the good ol' real books?

no, it's all printed very well, and the mistakes that plagued the old real books are all but gone.

Well I bought the Hal Leonard version. As it turns out, the Hal Leonard version is the same thing thing as the once "illegal" real book, but all of the mistakes have supposedly been corrected, and all of the songs are now legally a part of the book. I got it on amazon. com for 17 bucks. Hopefully it will be good.

The New Real Book is published by Hal Leonard and claims to be the 6th edition of the original real book. It is a good book. A friend of mine has a copy of it. It does sell for $17 on amazon.com.
Another good set of books are vol. 1, 2, and 3 of the Sher Real Books. This are owned by almost everyone in the jazz field, except the older guys who have the originals.
