Found this on a site:

" Is there anyone here from Boston, Massachusetts old enough to remember a local folk singer in the mid 1960's by the name of Dayle Stanley? She recorded two very fine albums for the Squire label--Child of Hollow Times and After the Snow--and then vanished from the music scene, never to reappear. I was fortunate to catch her in concert at Tufts University early in '66.

I recall that her voice, like Lisa's, was quite unique and had a certain angelic, other-worldly quality which made it unforgettable. In retrospect, her second album, especially, seemed to anticipate by many years some aspects of Lisa's music, being made up largely of original material co-authored with songwriter/poet Stephen Scotti of Cape Ann. One piece in particular, "Words Without Music", was sung wordlessly using what she called a "flutter-tongue" technique (David Crosby must have heard this one, for on his first solo album If I Could Only Remember My Name (1971), he did a number called "Song With No Words (Tree With No Leaves)" which is conceptually similar). Accompanied only by a single acoustic six-string, and using no reverb or special effects of any kind, Dayle managed to create a spacey and haunting effect with just her voice.

Scotti himself was no slouch as a composer. "After the Snow" had an incredibly gorgeous melody that I remember as if I had heard it only yesterday, yet it was heard and remembered by almost no one else. He wrote the song for Dayle when she was pregnant with their love child; I recall these lines from the text:

Flower, flower, O my Love,
Whom (?) for me to love...
Giving life for me to hold and know--
In unconscious night, to you I'll go,
In the winter after the snow,
After the snow.

Sadly, those two albums are long out-of-print and have never, to my knowledge, been reissued. "

While I'm not from Boston, I remember the 2 albums from Dayle very well. "After the Snow" was my favorite. I wish I still had the albums, but unfortunately, they got sold without my knowing it. Wish there was a way someone could put them out on cd. "I used to walk, alone by the sea, watching the waves touch the shore........" are lines I still remember from "After the Snow". Thanks for the reminder of this great singer.

I'm so glad to read that people still remember Dayle Stanley.
I have both of her albums and they are just beautiful.
Unfortunately I do not have the capability or knowledge :-( to put them onto a CD. I love her version of, "Shennendoah" which actually is my favourite of all the many, many artists who have recorded it.
It is absolutely stunning!!

I will share my memories of how I came to know about Dayle Stanley.
Many, many years ago, in the 1970's I was in a Woolworth's store,
(ah,sadly those aren't around anymore) and I was looking through their music section of albums and 45 records. I saw the album, "After the Snow" and although I had never heard of Dayle Stanley, I thought the cover was very nice and read the back of the album cover. I was already a hugh Joan Baez fan and I thought that this album looked like something I would enjoy. I bought it for a few dollars (it was new, not used)and as soon as I got home, I listened to it. I immediately loved it!! I thought that Dayle had a lovely voice and wondered why she was not well known.

Many years later I found her other album somewhere else and it is also a wonderful record.
I love her voice and only wish they had been rereleased on CD.
I guess many obscure folk artists from the 60's have never had their records released on CD.

I was haunted for years by the song Dayle sang named "Cry the Mountains White". I had heard it on a Boston radio folk show (WBZ Sunday nights with host Dick Summer I think)back in the early or mid 60's. I finally was able to make a copy off a radio station playlist onb the internet just a few years ago. I would also love to have CD's of her albums. There is one song of hers I believe on a recently released compilation CD titled "Women Blue". I wonder where the royalty check for that will be sent since I guess no one knows where she is today. I think she would be about 63 now? I remember that Patrick Sky recorded one of her songs.

I remember Dayle Stanley as well. I had her first album "Child of Hollow Times" in the sixties and listened to it till it nearly wore out. I was singing in the folk scene as well then (I left it for musicals, then later classic) and found her haunting and inspirational. I especially remember her rendition of "Anathea" - beautiful.

A couple of years back I first tried to find her in the Net and was quite astonished when the search came back with so few results. You can find tons of references in the internet to the most meaningless occurrences and unknown people, but pretty much all you find on Dayle Stanley is other people looking for her.

Incidentally I just checked E-Bay in America and found "child of hollow times" - Article 370159134181 - in case anyone's interested. (I would buy it in a flash, but I live in Europe and with shipping it starts to get very expensive.)

Good to know at least that Dayle is remembered.

I was Steve and Dayle's babysitter. They had two great kids, Raem Paul and Christopher Robin. She had a stunning voice. They were good folks.
They lived in Gloucester Mass when I knew them. Steve was very active there in theater and music. I think Raem is still there,

I met and hung out with Dale & Steve in Gloucester in the early 70s. There was always a bustle of "creative types" in and out. I remember entering the kitchen and finding her at the table with Odetta. They had a beautiful home in Gloucester overlooking Ipswich Bay.

The kids were special and Christopher was a self proclaimed "wireman".

I also met and fell in love with their baby sitter who taught me a lot about living a larger life.

Dale was always sweet, welcoming and extremely interesting. I remember her playing me a wacky cut titled "Dancing in the Nude" by then studio guitarist Marty Mull.

Lyrics:

Flower, flower oh my love
Bloom for me to love
Giving life for me to hold on now
In unconscious night, to you I'll call

In the winter
After the snow
After the snow

Send, oh send me to my home
Where I left the ground
Of my youth and dreams and vast array
For the lonely sun to burn away

In the winter
After the snow
After the snow

Run, oh run on stream of love
In the spring-time of
Stolen wine we found on Orange Hill
Hidden times gone by we used to feel

In the winter
After the snow
After the snow

Flower, oh flower oh my love
Bloom for me to love
Giving life for me to hold on now
In unconscious night, to you I'll call

In the winter
After the snow
After the snow

The beautiful and haunting "After the Snow" was sung by Canadian folksinger Bonnie Dobson on an album called "For the Love of Him" (another gorgeous love song). The song is credited to S. Scotti. There has been a renewed interest in Bonnie Dobson, who has lived in the UK for a long time. Several of her early albums have been re-released in CD format, including "For the Love of Him" which includes "After the Snow". Available on Amazon.
If anyone has the full lyrics to "After the Snow" I'd love to have them. And if anyone knows anything about the songwriter, S. Scotti, please share.
Cheers,
Heather

Stephen Scotti passed away in July of 2013 at age 78. Here's the link to the obituary notice:

http://www.tributes.com/obituary/show/Stephen-R.-Scotti-96038429

You will note that there is no mention of Dayle, the mother of his two sons, unless Christine is her real first name (not Ramona) and she is alive and well and Stephen's widow.

What has been posted here about Dayle and Stephen conflicts with something I remember from seeing Dayle perform at Tufts University in February 1966. She mentioned to the audience something about a divorce, and I inferred that she and Stephen were no longer together, and yet "Clinton" here says he/she met and hung out with them in the early 70's and that they shared a home in Gloucester at that time.

I am grateful to whoever posted the lyrics to "After The Snow", because there is a line in the song that I had despaired of making out from either Dayle's or Bonnie Dobson's rendition. The line is "Stolen wine we found on Orange Hill".

For any who may be interested--I have a long-standing hobby of making conceptual music mixes--"musicollages", as I call them--and about four years ago, after discovering both renditions of "After The Snow" on YouTube, I curated a mix called 'In The Bleak Mid-Winter', on a Christmas theme with an embedded love story that ends in death; the actual inspiration for the mix was "The Christmas Shoes". The mix is available to be listened to on Mixcloud; links below for the audible and the tracklist.

BTW, among these posts is a quote from a post I had placed with another website. The "Lisa" mentioned therein is Lisa Gerrard, the female half of the World Music duo, Dead Can Dance. She is also renowned for her filmscore work, notably 'The Insider' and 'Gladiator'.

There are a few words I hear differently:


AFTER THE SNOW
As recorded by Dayle Stanley on "After the Snow"

Flower, flower, oh, my love,
Bloom for me to love,
Giving life for me to hold and know.
In unconscious night, to you I'll go,

In the winter,
After the snow,
After the snow.

Send, oh, send me to my own
Where I left the crown
Of my youth and dreams and vast array
For the lonely sun to burn away

In the winter
After the snow
After the snow.

Run, oh, run on, stream of love,
In the spring-time of
Stolen wine we found on orange hills.
Hidden times gone by we used to fill,

In the winter,
After the snow,
After the snow.

Flower, oh flower, oh my love,
Bloom for me to love,
Giving life for me to hold and know.
In unconscious night, to you I'll go

In the winter,
After the snow,
After the snow.

[I have also listened, on Spotify, to the recording by Bonnie Dobson from the album "Vive la Canadienne" (2014). I believe she sings the same lyrics given here.]

Jim Dixon hears the words almost exactly as I hear them.

I have found Raem Scotti in the Gloucester White Pages and written him a letter, so I may soon have long-awaited news about Dayle to share with you all--but that isn't the only reason I wrote him:

I don't want to get everyone's hopes up too high, but if all goes well, we may soon have another fine cover of "After The Snow" to delight us, one which might possibly revive Dayle's career (provided she's still living; she must be well into her 70's) and bring her recordings back to the light of day. For several years, I have been following a band from Sweden called Anekdoten. Their thing is heavy Progressive Rock influenced by King Crimson. They started in the early 90's after a period of time as a King Crimson tribute band under a different name, and are the tip of the spear of the 90's Mellotron revival, but they do have their relatively quiet moments. Their Mellotronist and only female member, Anna Sofi Dahlberg, has done at least one lead vocal; "In Freedom", from their second album 'Nucleus' (link below). She has a lovely voice somewhat similar to that of Bonnie Dobson. She also plays the cello and has a background in a wide variety of music, including folk.

For some time, I have been trying to persuade Anekdoten to do a cover of "After The Snow" with Anna Sofi (double first name, rather common in Sweden) on the vocal, through their Facebook page, and I invite you all to join me in this campaign by writing to them at 'anekdoten@anekdoten.se'. If they hear from enough people about this, they just might do it--and they are beholden to no one, doing EVERYTHING themselves and outsourcing nothing, right down to their own label (Virta). I've given them the YouTube link to Dayle's original recording, along with the lyrics as Jim Dixon has rendered them above, except that it's "IN vast array".

Let's give it our best shot and see if we can make this happen!

Besides, I think the Queen of Mellotronica owes me that much, my having paid her the "Supreme Compliment" after my own characteristically overblown and bombastic fashion. (I daresay, if she had balls, Mike Pinder would not be King of Mellotronica anymore.)
