IvanB- You have a first edition- Celebration of Life was first published by Big3, and it was such a work of art- great blacked-out spaces throughout- and heavy paper which immediately separated at the seams and each of those first books just fell apart...pretty, tho! As I recall it won a prize for design that year.

The second edition was done through Oak Publications and holds up very well...we took out some of the big black spaces and took out one or two songs, added a few others- that's when, "Early Fields" got in. We're now working on a revision ourselves (Geordie Music Publishing Co.) making it yet a bit more tailored. We thought we were down to 15 copies, but just found a box of 50; I guess they'll last until the new edition comes out, so we've left it on the website. Best to all, Jean
