Subject: Cheapest copies of RUS?
From: BO in KY
Date: 20 May 04 - 09:38 AM

Setting aside (for a moment!) the ongoing argument over the use of "Rise Up Singing" in song circles, I need to know what the cheapest source would be for, say, a dozen copies. I am doing some song leading and people have asked for lyrics; this is the easiest way I know of to provide them without violating all kinds of copywrite laws. I don't need new books, in fact I was hoping to get a better deal on a bunch of used ones. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Bo

When I taught guitar, I used to order them a carton at a time(30 copies) the from publisher(Sing Out Publications--1.888.SING-OUT)--they worked out to be just about half-price-used book sellers tend to price them at half cover price(sometimes more, because people want them), so you will have new books for about the price of used ones--

They used to give a good discount on smaller quantities, as well. One hint, get the money from your people up front, or you will end up chasing people to the ends of the earth to collect your eight bucks--

Sing Out! web site
there will be more info here...including this:
Unfortunately the host for the Sing Out! Store (Legacy Books) went belly up overnight, leaving us holding the bag ... and you wondering how you can search through our huge stock of out-of-print and hard-to-find folk music books. While we are redesigning and moving the store to a new host, we'll make our most popular titles available through an alternative secure PayPal account ... for all other books, please call us toll-free during regular east coast business hours and one of our friendly staff will be happy to help you find the title you're looking for!

http://www.bookfinder.com/ lists several stores that offer discount new copies. Overstock.com looks like the cheapest.

Thanks, y'all. I have been watching these books on e-bay for the last several months, and most go for around $17, which is not much of a savings. The deal from Sing Out is tempting, but I can't really float $250 and 30 books is probably too much of a good thing. So far, Overstock is the best deal at $10.69 per, but I'm still thinking there must be cheaper used ones out there. Perhaps if those who despise the thing could send me a few - I'll make sure you never see them again :-).

Thanks again for all your help and input.

Shalom,

Bo
