(Lucy Records, 1977)
Only 1000 copies each of "Ferron," from 1977 and "Ferron Backed Up" (1978) were pressed, so both are very rare, and usually fetch over $100 on eBay. In June 2008 a copy of the first LP went for $212 on eBay. "Backed Up" is unfortunately not in my collection, but here are the scans of it I have found online.
Ah, 1980's "Testimony"...containing both the classic title track and "Ain't Life a Brook." It was released briefly on CD and those copies are in the $50 neighborhood, when you can find them. I recommend picking up "Impressionistic" instead.
And, below, another classic not yet on CD, "Shadows on a Dime" (1984)
Center," from 1990 was reissued on Warner Brothers in 1995, and
I've ready that
copy of 1992's concert album "Not a Still Life" is on tape,
but it's now available on CD.
"Driver" (1994) originally had the cover on the left, though I don't recall ever seeing that version; now it's on CD. Its song "Girl on the Road" has the line "I wanted to turn beautiful and serve eternity"...and those thoughts ten years later were indeed "Turning Into Beautiful." Below, Alice says yes, you should own "Still Riot," from 1996
From 1999, Ferron's covers album, and it's a delight
from 2000, the compilation "Impressionistic"...a very choice
Above & Below, both from 2008, CD "Boulder," and book "Catching Holy"
from 1990, an Australian 12" single
The Hunter Davis album "Harmony" (Redwood Records 8601, 1986) included guest vocals by Holly Near, Linda Tillery, Teresa Trull, and on the track "Universal Stranger," featured vocals by Ferron. If you know of other "guest spots" on recordings by Ferron please let me know.
And, gee, here's a Ferron 45 rpm record. I wonder how many of these she had?
