Subject: Chord Req: Ferron songbook
From: GUEST,justinKrivers

Ferron is one of my favorite songwriters and I would love to be able to share her tunes and play them for others. Does anyone have her Not A Still Life songbook? I have seen it referenced as a 50 page spiral bound book, but have never seem a copy.

Ferron

WorldCat shows a few at libraries, but only a few. It looks like Interlibrary Loan is the only way to get your hands on a copy of the disc. One of the listings suggests that the disc includes a 12-page booklet. That's the only reference to print material that I find.

But then, out of curiosity, I took a look at YouTube.
Here is the album.

Ferron has been through a whole series of record labels,
and at one point even self-published some recordings.

I do see our GUEST's point when i look up Ferron's Wikipedia entry,
which states:
Not A Still Life: Songbook. (1993)
(wire-bound to lay flat)
Nemesis Publishing,
Vashon, Washington

what about contacting the Washington State publisher?

Ferron has got a Library of Congress entry,
but for the life of me,
I'm too ignorant to understand what's in the listing.
You have to be a REAL librarian to read that one . . .

I went to https://www.bookfinder.com/, my usual go-to place for used books. Not a single copy available for sale.

The album is available on Amazon - and you can play it for free, if you're a Prime member.

Yes I have the album, it's my favorite one of hers actually. The booklet that accompanies the CD does not contain the songbook, it was published separately. I know the songbook exists because it was advertised by ladyslipper music in a catalog entry I found online. It is no longer available among any sellers that I have found. Thought there might be someone here who had a copy.

I suspect that was a self-published book then, without the author registering it anywhere for copyright, etc., because there is no Library of Congress record of it that we can find. You'll have to keep your eyes open on places like eBay and Bookfinder (I also went there, before logging on to WorldCat). And since it appears she worked with a publisher on Vashon Island (Washington) you might want to check with some of the Seattle Song Circle and Vancouver Song Circle folks.

Yes it was indeed self-published. Nemesis is her publishing company and at the time she lived on Vashon Island.
