This site is a treasure! A friend sent me the link tonight and I've been reliving wonderful memories of my seemingly endless nights spent at the Garret. It was my home away from home, the place where immersed my troubled teenaged soul in the warmth of Terrea's voice, the Garret Special, Stacy and Sue's friendship and grins. I think of Terrea every time someone leaves someplace early and I tell them "You'll miss the drawing." The Garret was my haven and my place of joy. Thank you, dear Webmaster, for creating this site. And thank you Terrea, Stacy, Sue and all who ran the cappucino machine. I think of you all whenever I hear that squidging whoosh wherever it may be.

Spent much of my late teens, early 20's at the Garret with my first husband Jay Shapiro who had worked there on and off as a doorman. We used Terrea's beautiful song Love is a moment at our wedding and I still have the autographed album cover she signed for us in 1967. Glad to hear you are still going strong and so glad I found this webpage. Thanks for many wonderful memories and the beautiful music I still listen to.

I purchased the retrospective CD, which I love,and would hope to see another one available soon.
I use to go to the "Garret" in the late 60's, one of my favorite places to go. One of her songs was "the Lovers" which made a big impact on me, and would love hear Terrea sing it again. What are the chances of another CD being made whith the "The Lovers" included in it.

Yesterday, after all these years, I found myself singing "Bon Soir Dame," as I drove around doing my errands.

I enjoyed going to the Garret back in the 60s. Thanks to the webmaster for keeping these memories alive. Great days, great music. I was especially moved by Terrea's rendition of "Two Brothers."

Now I can be found at least one night/week singing and fiddling at a Songmakers' Hoot, and haven't missed a Kenny Grove Songmakers' Camping week-end since my harp playing/singing husband and I first discovered them about 1 1/2 years ago. We'll be at Music in the Mountains (a folk music week-end) the week-end of Nov. 5-7 at Camp deBenneville Pines-highly recommend it if you're still a folkie! We also do our best to never miss the S.M. Traditional Folk Club which meets in S.M. the first Sat. night of the month. Hope to see you folkies at one of those places!

I loved going to the Garret in the late 60's and until it closed. Loved sitting around the fire pit and listening to Terea Lee sing Lemon Tree and Today. I graduated Beverly Hills H.S. in '66 and UCLA in '70. Love to hear from others who hung out there in those days.

Went to Fairfax High School in early 60's. Loved going to the Garret ( I think it was almost every Fri. night ).

Hi, Terria,

You can get a retrospective CD taken from Terrea's vinyl albums here:

and the albums themselves sometimes come up for sale on eBay and various rare record sites and auctions on the Internet. Prices vary widely, so it pays to shop around., iTunes and Kazaa have some of Terrea's music available for download or as demand published CDs, but they are doing this without Terrea's permission (or knowledge, until I told her) and she gets no royalties or other benefit from those sales. At this time, Terrea and some of her friends (including me) are considering what legal action to take with regard to that.

So far as I know, is the only Terrea Lea oriented web site on the Internet. She also has a couple of listings in the Internet Movie Database (under Terrea Lea and Terrea Lee) detailing the various TV shows and movies she's appeared in.

Beyond that, I'll answer what questions I can and can always check with Terrea herself if you ask something I don't know.

Thanks much for your interest.

Best wishes,
Jerry Hollombe, Webmaster

Hi my name is Terria Leigh I was told by my parents that I was named after a folk singer. My Dad fell in love with the name but varied the spelling of it. I am trying to find some of Miss Lea's recordings online so I may experience her talented voice. I am hoping to find something I am a great lover of music and work with talented musical artists. Myself and my business partner have a company called 'Teamiz Entertainment" and we produce Tribute Shows. Hope to find out some info on Terrea Lea. Thank You Terria Leigh

Haven't looked in on you lately - are you and Terrea O.K.?
I'm now playing organ for our local senior center, and sometimes bring the banjo to spice up the music - I only play chords on my 1926 Vega 4-string, but no too many banjo players in this age group, I guess..... Hope you are well.....

Reading and re-reading every comment by all the guests and then the original content posted by Jerry, has touched deep feelings within me. The Garret experience and Terrea's music had very strong influences forming my values and identity as I moved through adolescence into adulthood, circa 1963 -1970. I cherish this sight, having just found it, as I have always cherished those nights at that little club on Fairfax.

Sights and sounds have been well described, but also there was the impromptu wit and wisdom of Terrea between songs, as she read notes and requests sent up to her,(I always begged for "Mariah" or "The House of The Rising Sun,") and the running comments she made as changed and tuned her guitars.

Thanks to everyone who has posted, to the Webmaster for rekindling the glow, most of all, thanks to Terrea Lea for her lifelong impact.

As I hearken back, the last place I visited before and the first place I visited after Army active duty was
The Garret.
