Donovan: Catch The Wind (CD)

(Disky) 16 Tracks - Pye International 1965

Singer-Songwriter Donovan Philip Leitch, born Glasgow 1946, moved down to Hertfordshire aged 10, and by the age of 18 was already a seasoned Woody Guthrie-influenced folk performer, living in St. Ives, Cornwall, and performing in folk clubs throughout England and Scotland with kazoo player Gypsy Dave.

At Southend in late 1964 he was spotted by music entrepreneurs Geoff Stephens and Peter Eden who offered to manage him. Donovan's immediate impact was huge: his catchy (mostly) self-penned folk songs invited comparison with Bob Dylan, then enjoying his initial surge of popularity, and by March 1965 Donovan was a regular on 1N's prestigious 'Ready Steady Go'.

His first Pye single 'Catch The Wind' outperformed Dylan's debut chart hit 'The Times They Are A-Changin' and hit the US Top 30. By the time he split - acrimoniously - with Stephens and Eden in October 1965, Donovan had cut two hit albums - 'What's Bin Did And What's Bin Hid' and 'Fairy Tale', a hit EP 'Universal Soldier', and three hit singles.

The cream of that amazing crop is contained on this compilation and demonstrates Donovan's mastery of the folk idiom, immediately before he changed style, went electric, and became the greatest exponent of flower-power.

Donovan

Geboren am 10. 5.1946 in Glasgow Nach einem Jahrzehnt Pop-Geschäft und 15 Langspielplatten (die jüngste erschien zu Beginn des Jahres 1975: „Tease') ist der Märchenerzähler der Popmusik wieder gut im Rennen - hatte er die ver- gangenen 2 Jahre doch lediglich zum Fast-Nichtstun benutzt. 1964 trat der sanfte Weltveränderer erstmals in der britischen TV-Show „Ready, Steady, Go' auf und wurde auf Anhieb zu einem beliebten und gefragten Star. Zu seinen großen Erfolgen gehören unter anderem die Titel „Sunshine Superman', „Season Of The Witch' (das auch Julie Driscoll Zu Erfolg verhalf), „Mellow Yellow' oder vor allem die traumhaft verspielte und Sehnsüchtige Ballade vom untergegangenen Kontinent „Atlantis'.

Seit Donovan 1970 erstmals eine elektrische Gitarre benutzte und jazzige Arrangements in Seine Songs bauen ließ, sind seine Platten auch musikalisch abwechslungsreicher als zuvor. Besonders bei seiner jüngsten Langspielplatte „Tease' nimmt der einstige Folk-Apostel Jazz-, Rock- und Gospelelemente in seine Musik auf.
