"Collie Ryan privately pressed three albums in the early seventies, "Taking Your Turn Round The Corner of Day", "Indian Harvest", and "The Giving Tree". The 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 the Numero Group's stellar compilation "Ladies From the Canyon" in 2006. Collie's music is almost solely based around her cosmic and birdlike voice and nylon guitar picking, and her lyrics reflect her lifelong study of theosophy and naturalist living. Sebastian Speaks, in association with Douglas McGowan of Yoga Records is proud to present this compilation "The Hour is Now", culling tracks from her first three lps and presented in a sleeve featuring new front and back paintings by Collie. The tracks have been completely re-mastered from the original source tapes by J.D. Emmanuel of "Wizards" fame. For fans of Buffy Sainte-Marie, Joni Mitchell, Sibelle Baier, and Ruthann Friedman."
