Thread Name: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Subject: RE: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Just had my own little Hedge&Donna moment and wanted to share. I had a couple of their albums back in the very early 1970s, listened to them all the time, but never saw H&D in person, never saw them on tv, never knew anyone else who had ever heard of them. The records are long gone, but the music and lyrics stayed in my head and heart. In recent years I've searched the internet but never found anything about them or the music. Then tonight I googled them and bingo! I hit the mother lode! Found this thread and the music on you-tube and myspace, started playing "Jamie"...and my husband of 23 years says, "I know that song!" I reply, "Well, yes, I've sung that to our daughter for years." Then I play "Hannah" and he says the same thing! And every H&D song I play, he already knows and loves. Turns out he had a friend in the 70s who had these albums, he just didn't remember the names Hedge and Donna; so when I would mention them, he had no idea who I was talking about. Can't explain just how lovely it feels to know we were connected by this beautiful music years before we ever met. Thank you to all who have posted comments and especially to those who have made the music available once again.
