Thread Name: What ever happened to Deena Webster?
Subject: RE: What ever happened to Deena Webster?
To Guest - Ian S.

I too have been trying to find out more about this very talented aritst. Perhaps others who worked with her on the album besides the person who was the arranger might be of some help. Other musicans, etc.
This is how I came to know of Deena Webster although I live in USA.
I was visiting London, England during the 70s' but I was very very young and didn't have too much money to spend. I saw the LP in a record shop that was in the Queensway or Bayswater area.
I wanted to buy the album - it was new but I think the day I was at that shop I didn't have enough money. Came back in a few days after I had gone to a bank to exchange some travelers cheques. Went back to the shop - but (the only copy on the shelf had been sold.)
I hadn't heard of Deena Webster but liked the songs on the record and thought it might be a good album.
So I was flying back to USA with my parents in a few days and never did get the record there. I did go back to London in later years during the 80's but never found it in a record shop - and I looked!

Fast forward to Ebay - and that's where I found it - for sale from a guy in France about 8 or 9 years ago now. So I finally found the record and have really enjoyed it over the last years.

Wish we could find out more about what Deena was doing in later years.
I love her cover of Janis Ian's "Hair of Spun Gold."
