Collie Ryan

Collie Circa 1973

Collie Ryan privately pressed three records in 1973 with the help of some friends at New Age Farms in Lompoc, California; The Giving Tree, Indian Harvest, and Takin’ Your Turn ‘Round the Corner of Day.

Eventually, Ms. Ryan made her way out to the desert in West Texas. She currently lives about 12 miles outside of Terlingua without electricity or running water (all of her water is hauled from a nearby creek). The area around Terlingua is home to a sparse, unstructured community of outsiders, artists, and back-to-the-landers fashioning their lives out of the honesty of the desert. Collie paints mandalas, meditations on the circular center from which life is based. In 2001, she recorded a new CD, Letters from Home, which one can order by e-mailing her friend Bob Smith. She also recently gave an interview.

The Sebastian Speaks label has collected some of the best tracks from her 1973 albums for a new release entitled The Hour Is Now. The tracks were pressed to LP from the original master tapes without any intermediate digital step, resulting in an entirely analog product. The Hour Is Now is limited to 1000 copies and can be purchased here.

    other person’s webpage link on your page at appropriate place and other person will
    also do same in support of you.
