This just came in my email:

1. Revisions and updates are nearing completion for a revised edition of Rise Up Singing to be released next fall. Along with minor corrections, updated source notes and track "keys" (to make using the book with the Teaching CDs even easier), we have improved the overall typography making the book easier to read and use than ever ... PLUS we will be releasing a bigger "large print" version at the same time, giving users more choices and ease in using the book.

2. Look for new reprintings of our Collected Reprints series this summer as well. These books have been out-of-print for more than 5 years, and we know that there is a lot of clamor to get them available again.

3. Watch, too, for the relaunch of the Legacy Books Online Store with greatly improved searching capabilities, and lots more flexibility to highlight special titles, and to help you find exactly what you're looking for.

ALL THIS, of course, along with continuing to bring you the best information about what's happening in folk music today, and amazing array of traditional and contemporary songs, and in-depth features on the music we love and the artists who are making it ... all through Sing Out! magazine (and the accompanying sampler CD!) four times a year!

Of course, this is a pitch for subscriptions and donations, so if you're interested go here: www.JustGive.org.
Blessings,
Barbara

I hope they put the sevenths in. Got very boring pencilling them in, song after song.

Gee, Barbara, how come you get Sing Out! stuff so much earlier than I do? I have a life membership, but you got the magazine a full two weeks before I got mine this time. Is there a way to get on their e-mail list?

Was there any information at all about the proposed second volume of Rise Up Singing? It was supposed to be published in 1999, I thought.

Maybe if you get the CDs, they ship those out separately and later.
I didn't see any info about Vol 2, but I emailed you the information I got, and I bet you can ask them to add you to the email list and they'd be glad to.
Do you suppose the revised edition will contain new songs? I didn't gather from the blurb if it would.
And gosh, Peter, you mean you can actually use those chords by only writing in 7s? I found I often had to start again from scratch. Not always, but sometimes...
Still, it's an amazing book for what it is and does, even if I do get sick of hearing people sing from it, and even with all the glitches.
Maybe Joe can find out something more about what will be in the fall 2004 edition.
Blessings,
Barbara

Hi, Barbara - this thread tells of the Volume 2 project. In 1997, I was one of several volunteers who worked on the lists of songs that should be included in the book, and I corresponded back and forth with Peter Blood several times during that process. He finished his part, and sent it off to Sing Out! for completion. Last I heard of was a couple of years ago, when they said they were still working on getting permission to include songs in the the book. At htat time, they said that a revision of the original blue Rise Up Singing book would be issued "soon." The new book would have a more legible typeface (but not a larger format), and it was to have corrections and revisions - but no new songs.

I had to change a lot of chords, I was being diplomatic. I have been snarky about parts of it (the MEN's section particularly). But I will say that I have used the book to search out all kinds of songs from the original singers, and have rarely been disappointed. Overall it is quite an amazing book for a kind of North American collection, wears well. My big suggestion was to put in blank pages so one can paste in one's own faves. About 10 pages would be fine.

yours,

Peter T.

Are they going to put back the original lyrics, or keep all the arbitrary changes to non-sexist, non-racist, non-singable lyrics that they made in the original?

Are they going to put in the right chords in the right sequences?

What I'd really like to see, is for them to quote, in the front, the following "P. S." that appears in the original IOCA "Song Fest" (a vastly better book, in my grouchy old guy's sexist, racist, opinion):

A reward of one left-hand dungaree patch, guaranteed not to rip, run, rust, tear, split, melt, break, etc. is hereby offered for the pelt of the first bohunk caught surreptitiously using this book at a songfest.

Peter.

"..along with minor changes..."
