Thread Name: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Subject: RE: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
It's so wonderful to find this thread...I've had some old songs on my mind these past few weeks...the only H&D song I ever knew was Hannah. It used to be played on a KC "underground" station and I'd hear it every morning around the time I got up. It was so hauntingly beautiful, and I can still hear it in my head. That was back in 1971, a few lifetimes ago it seems. I tried to get hold of some H&D albums some years back, but it seems like I was told their stuff was no longer available...Sometimes the feeling that I want to touch things from my past is so overwhelming to just makes me so happy to find this thread tonight and connect with so many others who were touched by that music. I'm going to try to find a recording of Hannah right now..I've heard it in my head so many times in the last 39 years. From reading this thread, I can see there is a lot more stuff by H&D that I need to hear. Thanks to all of you. I feel connected to you all!
P.S., another song that had a tremendous effect on me was "Western Wisconsin" by the group Rosebud, which featured Judy Henske and Jerry Yester. Thanks to the internet I found a recording of it last week, but not the one I was familiar with. These songs are greater than the sum of their parts... for me, thir power is just unexplainable, but so very real and wonderful! Again, thanks to you all!!
