Reuther's book is well known and quite old. It covers the basics, mostly for older accordion technology. A lot of it still applies to new accordions and repairs are most often needed on older accordions, so it is useful for learning your first repairs.

There's Frank Marocco Jazz Accordion on there too.
Not that I could actually play it, but intersting to see.

Yes, I had found that one about a year ago.   Some nice sounds there.   Might also want to try Arrigo Tomasi's web page.   You can join and get full versions with his improvisations or just download his simpler versions of the songs.   He has some nice stuff on there.

Not for accordion but there is a jazz version of some of the Beatle songs out there also.   I am struggling to play most of them but they are the best versions I have found of the Beatle hits.

Upvote for Accordion Revival, it's my fettling bible.

But there's no harm in seeing other opinions :)

I think Jim D. (here) is quite reputable too.

If all sources fail try fixing something that isn't important first.

Also there is a book of Italian songs, pretty standard but an interesting version of Carnevale di Venezia. Jim D. Is the best!
