Hi, all!

The Garret's Web site has now been in operation for over a year. It first went live on October 10th, 2001, and November 2001, was its first full month of operation.

A number of former regulars have found the site and signed in with their memories, which was the original purpose. Of course, there are still many old friends who have yet to find us. I look forward to hearing from some of them in the next year.

Many thanks to all who helped me build and maintain the site. May the next year go as well as the past one.

Best wishes to you all,

Jerry Hollombe, Webmaster

Howdy from south Georgia! I was doing a search on Bonnie and Clyde and fell across this site. Pretty interesting. Just and interesting fact for y'all, Clyde Barrow is one of my ancestors. Just thought you'd like to know!

What a wonderful site to find!! I was in a reflective mood, and did a name search on Terrea Lea -- winding up here.

I spent my "late teen" years there around N. Fairfax, and knew that there was always a safe haven to be found at The Garret. To hear/experience Terrea's voice raised in song always helped to put things into perspective. Terrea could "read" her audience well, and every performance (set) was met with wild acclaim and enjoyment. I can truthfully say, I never heard anyone say they were "short-changed" or disappointed with the performance.

Unfortunately, I moved to Mississippi early in 1971, and had to depend on the vinyl records to keep the memories alive. If anyone out there has either album "Terrea Lea", or "Terrea Lea, Folksongs & Ballads", I would appreciate hearing from them...

Maybe one day I'll be back to California, and travel to San Diego for a donut - even if I can't get a cappuchino to go with it.

Well, I guess that Thomas Wolfe was wrong, "you can go home again".

As with everyone who written a note, I too was a regular at "The Garret".

I have not had as good a cup of capuccino in over 30 years.

Has it been that long ?

I have even forgotten when "The Garret" closed ?

I long for the days when we would sit around the fireplace sharing poems and dreams.

Putting some coins on the pool table, and saying "next".

I remember having to go outside and around the back in order to take a leak.

Thank Heavens we could still hear Terrea sing, while we went about our business.

I remember yelling "Ye Haw" when Terrea would sing "Your Cheatin' Heart", and getting her pissed off.

I long for the sounds of the expressio machine, right in the middle of a song.

I remember the "hoot's" on Sunday Nights.

I remember the News Years Eve's, and if you were a "regular" and they knew you, you could get a real "shot" of brandy in your capaccino.

Forgive me if my spelling is lousy, but I'm just excited as a 18 year old finding my true love again, after all these years.

At the time, I "took" my best friends giri friend from him, and then married her.

Sadly I/we divorced later.

Is there anyone out there that lives in the San Fernando Valley ?

I have one of Terrea's old vinyl albums that I would love to get transferred to CD. I know that the quality would not be great, but it is the memory I want to re-live.

Does anyone out there have any of Terrea's other albums that I can get a copy of ?

Damn, we must all be getting old, and yearning for us, what we would call "the good old days".

Sure wish we could re-live some things again.


I hope to hear from anyone.

We apologize for the interruption of service on July 24, 2002. Gene, the sysadmin, advises me, "It turned out to be the DSL modem needing a swift kick. All is well now."

Ain't technology wonderful?

Go Terrea. I was a regular with a different girl every week, from 1962-1966. I stop by to say hello to you every year at the San Diego County Fair. You look terrific and I miss your music. Glad to see you and Sue are doing so well. You and the Garret were an important part of my younger years in L.A. "The First Time" never failed to blow me away.

Take Care

I've thought of you so much over the years.

The nights (and days) at the Garret seem like yesterday.

I hope you're well and happy.

Much love, Jerry

Hi Everyone. Terrea and I are slinging our famous little donuts at the Del Mar Fair, "now called The San Diego County Fair." We would love to see any of you who might be in the area. We are in the Bing Crosby Hall and are there for the next 21 days. This is our 17th year at this fair and the next one is Ventura County, July 31 thru August 11.

We are both still in the process of trying to get along without B.J. It has been a difficult adjustment. Life does go on and so do we. Love to all of you, Sue

I used to have one hell of a time backing my big old Oldsmobile out of the back of your place. How are you, you grand beautiful woman. Hillary & David & Mimi have all made me a Grandmother. I'm in a Chicago suburb, but sure wish I could be there to sit and hear you sing, again.

Much love,

What makes you think you'll get information about aircraft from a Web site about a coffee house?

(For the record, the Webmaster used to be an aircraft mechanic, but that was over 30 years ago and most of what he knows about them is long out of date.)

Sorry, there are no commercial CD versions of Terrea's

albums. You can often find the orignial, vinyl records

on the Web by checking rare record sellers and auction

sites (I still haven't found "Les Baxter's Balladeers,"

though). Many home computer systems are capable of burning

audio CDs, so you might be able to make your own by copying

the orignials.

I was at the Garret several times in the mid-60's and loved it. I have 2 of Terrea's records but after years of heavy play, they are very scratched. Is it possible to buy her old albums on CD's? Thanks.

I don't know where Fran is these days, but a Web search for

her bother, Ron, turned him up as Cantor at a local synagogue.

You could try enquiring there. See:
