Background: Released in 1968, Deena Webster is Tuesday’s Child (The Flower Lady in Japan) is the only album by British folk singer Deena Webster.
The album did not chart.
The influences of early Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Marianne Faithfull, and Sandy Denny echo heavily on Deena Webster’s obscure 1968 British LP Tuesday’s Child. Emphasizing high-voiced and earnest interpretations of contemporary songs by Donovan, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and the Bee Gees, there’s also a hint of folk-pop orchestration in some of the arrangements. … Considering how often the song was covered, “The House of the Rising Sun” is a surprising standout, Webster’s haunted voice and acoustic guitar backed only by a spooky organ.
