Subject: Who Likes Donovan? Favourite Song?
From: Little Hawk
Date: 24 Aug 00 - 01:17 AM

I used to like Donovan a lot back in the early 70's. Then he seemed to sort of vanish from the scene. I later discovered that this was by his own volition...he voluntarily bailed out of the music game and its demands, wanting a more peaceful life than that.

He has made a few modest comebacks, however, and I had the good luck to see him at Mariposa in Barrie, Ontario, sometime in the late 80's, if I recall correctly.

What a magnificent performance he did! Utterly beautiful guitar playing and singing in every way, and utterly classic songs, plus some new ones.

Who's got a favourite Donovan song?

I've been more than partial to "Catch the Wind" for a long time. Pure folk and a crowd pleaser. He was another poor chap anointed with the "new Dylan" handle.

But I must confess, I loved his music backed up with a band. "Sunshine Superman" is one of those songs that just turned things around. I also enjoyed his later records, especially "Open Road", which I wore the grooves out on, and "Cosmic Wheels", I thought was fantastic.

I had Donovan 45's comimg out me nose.

I love Catch the Wind too. I have a live version of it, and it's much less Dylanesque than the studio single.

I also like the song that goes "first there is a mountain then there is no mountain then there is" but I can't remember the name of it.

I met Donovan in '64 when I was a student bumming arond Cornwall. There was a great folk/hippie scene in St.Ives and he was part of that.In August of that year he recorded "Catch the Wind " and the rest is history. The early songs are my favourites,of course, and especially "Ballad of a Crystal Man" (a gentle anti-war song),"Sunny Goodge Street" and 'Wear Your Love Like Heaven". Beautiful songs from a beautiful times; thanks for the memories; I'll have to get out the old Albums!

My 13 year old daughter came home from girl scout camp this year with a "new" song that was sooo great. Catch the Wind. Sometimes the folk magic just works on its own. I've enjoyed the forums and have my own 25 plus year old scout songbooks I'm starting to decipher. We weren't blessed with dittos. CIT summer you hand wrote all 114 songs of camp tradition I'm slowly tracking them down.

I recently found a terrific live CD by Donovan that has him doing most of his most well-known songs. The playing and singing are wonderful, but the best part of the CD is a story he tells about writing "Hurdy-Gurdy Man" while visiting the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India along with "three Beatles, one Beach Boy and Mia Farrow". The story is very cute and funny and he sings a verse to the song that George Harrison wrote. If I can find the CD in my recently unpacked stuff, and if anyone is interested, I can transcribe the story, but unfortunately you'll have to imagine the beautiful sound of Donovan telling the story - he really does have a wonderful voice, you know.

"Universal Soldier" was written by Buffy Sainte-Marie.

Some Mudcatters have been critical of Bob Dylan because he's used traditional melodies for some of his songs. Well Mr. Leitch has outright copywritten folksongs like "You're Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond" as his own compositions.

First of all, anyone who was around then and didn't do a few peels is a liar. Tasted like sh*t, as far as I'm concerned.

I'm trying to think of a Donovan song that I didn't like - even if Hurdy Gurdy man sounds like he recorded it while riding over a really bumpy road. Now I've got to go out and find a whole bunch of his stuff. Thanks alot, Little Hawk. Like I didn't have enough to do already.

I like the Little Tin Soldier song - don't know who wrote it. Also Lalena, and the one which goes:
Here's your gold watch and the shackles for your chain
And your piece of paper to say you left here sane
And if you've a son who wants a good career
Tell him to sign on the dotted line and work for 50 years

...and all the other songs mentioned so far on this thread. I only have three of his early albums, but none of his later ones or live performances.

Colours is the remembered song from D. I was in Ives wen he was there - and a budding Simon was seen lurking around. Don gave much to the scene them - more than her was ever credited for. His poetry was as good as Simon's but you had to have the acumen - he was genuine - Simon was business folk. Talked to John Renbourne a while back and he said Don was wasted - made commercial with C.the Wind and was pity - should have been much more. God on DOn. - made such good stuff and still does.

"Mountain" song is "First There Is a Mountain" and was part of Allmans' "Mountain Jam", later. I Liked "West Hempstead Incident" and "Writer in the Sun" And whenever the word Macedonia flies by on the news I have "The Lay of the Last Tinker" jammed in my head for the rest of the day. As I do, and will, now. I also think that was Jennifer Warnes, (upon whom I had a major crush) on that Smothers Bros. show, not Melanie.

I think Lonesome EJ's song with "I'll buy you a diamond ring..." sung over a Bo Didley riff is called "Hey Gyp". Helen mentions "Gold Watch Blues". Isn't that by Bert Jansch? I wonder if anyone has the lyrics or a web site for the man? "To Try For The Sun" is a favourite of mine. It mentions his friend Gypsy Dave. ("The gypsy boy and I").

There've been a couple of mentions here of Little Tin Soldier, with Helen inquiring about its authorship, and a guest asking about a lyric. This brings back many different aromas for me, most of them more effective then burning banana peels. The tune was written by Shawn Phillips, a Donovan sideman/collaborator in the 60's. Phillips was my favorite psychedelic folkie rocker during my college years in the early 70's. His lyrics were the perfect accompaniment to a 20-year old's latest Herman Hesse paperback. He had his own mid-level commercial success, releasing a string of major label albums through the 70's, and a few indie releases thereafter. His own version of Tin Soldier appeared on the 1964 album I'm A Loner, re-released a few years ago on CD. He now lives near Austin TX and still tours.

Guest, AND

I always had trouble working out what the last word was - I thought it might have been "God" but it didn't fit too well. So, thanks to your question I did a search and found the lyrics at
http://www.geocities.com/Nashville/8855/donovan.htm

There are only a few songs listed but some of the highly recommended ones in this thread are there.

For some reason, Eric Clapton is written at the end in brackets. I thought that might have meant that he wrote it. Mysterious.

THE LITTLE TIN SOLDIER

and a little tin soldier with only one leg lived in a castle of wood.
F G F G
And across the room on another shelf stood a little glass case,
C a F G
and a tiny ballerina lived in there all in her dress of lace.

they could see each other so clear.

And the little tin soldier watched over her,

with a love that was so dear.

The little tin soldier was thrown away, and into the gutter he rolled.

The water carried him to the sea and many far-off lands,
d a
he made many children happy as,

he passed through their tiny hands.

C a C a

And when the clock on the wall struck the midnight hour,
F d G
they jumped into a fire.
C a C a
And in that fire they shall stay, forever and a day,

for the fire, Lord, is the fire of love, just like the peaceful dawn.

Yes , "Colours" always reminds me of the summer of '65 (?) when I navvied in Southhampton. (We were helping to construct the aquaduct to the city). What a great folk performer he was... and is. He now lives near the town of Fermoy, north County Cork, Ireland, where he has collaborated with a local musician named Brian O'Reilly and his band "Loudest Whisper" on several projects, the most notable being a Celtic-rock opus called, "The Children of Lir" an internationally acclaimed Album recorded some three years ago.
