I'm looking for Helen Schneyer's album SOMBER, SACRED, & SILLY. Does anyone have a digital source for it?

Many thanks!

There are some CDs available used at Amazon, but not digitally.

Folk-Legacy Records has two album by Helen Bonchek Schneyer, but not this one. None of Helen's albums are available at CDBaby. The two Folk-Legacy albums are available on MPs, but this one album has always been difficult to obtain.

Maybe some of the Washington DC Mudcatters can connect you with Helen's daughter Riki Schneyer, who might be able to help.

Any digital source today would be an illegal pirated version. I own the CD, and knew Helen personally for many years. I hope the Amazon link will help.
