"The Hour Is Now"
by Collie Ryan
Label:SEBASTIAN SPEAKS
Format:     LP
Price: $16.50
Catalog #: SSP 006LP

Absolutely spellbinding, metaphysical, holistic songcycles that embrace both the darkness and the light, featuring Texas folkstress Collie Ryan.

"The Hour Is Now" includes tracks from all three of her privately-pressed 1973 albums, "The Giving Tree, Indian Harvest, and Takin' Your Turn 'Round The Corner Of Day," presented on vinyl in a sleeve featuring new front and back paintings by Collie herself.  Includes ledger-sized lyrics insert.

Tracks have been completely remastered from the original source tapes by J.D. Emmanuel of Wizards fame. The original records were funded in part by Collie's friends at the New Age Farms carrot and fresh juice company in Lompoc, California and her mesmerizing music remained largely a secret until "Cricket," one of the tracks from "Indian Harvest," surfaced on Numero Group's stellar 2006 compilation "Ladies From the Canyon."

Collie's music is almost solely based around her cosmic, crystalline, bird-like voice and nylon guitar picking, and her lyrics reflect her lifelong study of theosophy and naturalist living. Even today, Collie lives largely outside of what would be considered "regular" society, residing in a converted 1930's school bus in the middle of a Texas desert and painting mandalas on hub cabs, while continuing to produce her very special art and personal music.
"The Rainbow Records"

Label:YOGA RECORDS
Format:     3CD
Price: $31.00
Catalog #: BTR 042CD

A sun-kissed bevy of quirky, circular, acoustic guitar-picked metaphysical song cycles, topped by Collie's unfailingly sweet, clear trill.  Collie's cosmic music is almost solely based around her high, bird-like voice and nylon guitar picking.  Her lyrics reflect a lifelong study of theosophy and naturalist living.  This is a 3CD box set -- the first-ever CD reissue of these breathtaking folk gems by Texas' Collie Ryan.

Collie Ryan privately-pressed three albums in 1973, The Giving Tree, Indian Harvest, and Takin' Your Turn 'Round The Corner Of Day. These records were funded in part by Collie's friends at the New Age Farms carrot and fresh juice company in Lompoc, California.

Shortly after recording, Collie devoted her life to nature and moved completely off the grid.  Even today, Collie lives largely outside of what would be considered "regular" society, residing in a converted 1930s school bus in the middle of a Texas desert and painting mandalas on hub cabs, while continuing to produce her very special and personal music.

"The Rainbow Records" features a new painting by Collie, fantastic liner notes by partner Tommie Zook, and never-before-seen photographs.  This is a haunting collection that simply should not be missed.

A gifted vocalist and passionate lyricist, Ryan's music sits easily with the acid folk set, yet the simplicity and conviction of her work makes for music that sounds surprisingly timeless today.
