I was born in 1956. My uncle, Walt, lived with us while he went to college in the 60's. He didn't serve in the war & as far as I know, was not a war protester. He was and is, however a true humanitarian.

This album vinyl was in his collection and he played it often. He played guitar, he played in the snow with his nieces and he's playful in life. But in his heart there is a reflective man who continues to make a difference in the lives of all lucky enough to know and love him.

Donovan and this album will forever remind me of the times, the issues and those things that helped mold the man I currently know as "Bink".

Donovan went on to sing during my time, the 70's. Songs such as Hurdy Gurdy Man & Mellow Yellow are still among my favorites but if you really want to feel what was in Donovan's heart and those coming of age during the 60's , then this is the CD you want to get. You won't regret it.

Peace.

Most of us know Donovan as the epitome of "flower power" and the iconic figure of "hippy". Donovan himself proclaimed he was a beatnik and indeed he had lived that lifestyle from the early age of 14 about the time he started playing guitar and travelling on the road in the UK. Donovan learned cross-picking guitar techniques, and then folk and blues styles as he became a street performer in '64. Because he had been studying and influenced by Woody Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack (Elliott), it was eventual that his early tapings, songs like Catch The Wind and Josie, would be closely compared to Dylan who drew from the same canon of music. The medieval troubadour we have all come to love would not be invented for another year but in 1965 Donovan released What's Bin Did And What's Bin Hid on two independent labels in the UK and in the USA. Later that same year Fairytale was released with more songs in the same Dylan-esque folk vein (mind you that is what critics compared him to, not all of us). CATCH THE WIND is not a compilation of these two albums nor is it a re-release of either of them, rather it is a 2003 import album CD containing the essential essence of both albums and including the album version and single version of the title track hit and the single release of Colours.

It was the press who unilaterally called Donovan a "Dylan Clone" and even Bob Dylan himself was curious enough to want to meet him. When Bob referenced Donovan in Talking World War Three Blues his fans who heard the song live set out with boos and hisses and jeers shocking Bob to say "I didn't mean to put the guy down in my songs. I just did it for a joke, that's all.

I have to confess that I've always loved the old Donovan songs and his suggestive slightly imperfect voice.

If you are like me it is the best CD you can by in the world.

I think most people know Donovan from his hits - Sunshine Superman, Mellow Yellow, etc. Nothing wrong with that. (I own the "Greatest Hits CD myself.) But this (and other individual albums) shows that he was a talented singer and songwriter. This was his first album, so it is a little more "folksy" than subsequent releases. But I recommend listening to each song for itself, not just listening to the big hits.

This is a great Donovan album. Five stars. The one star is for funrec-us. The copies being offered by funrec-us are not the 1965 Hickory release of Donovan's Catch The Wind, as shown here. Their LPs are the 1971 Hallmark release. I let them know this --- apparently they don't care and continue to falsely represent this product.

This was one of my favorite albums in the 60s! It shaped my love of all music. Donovan got pretty weird after this, but he definitely created a work of art right off the bat. First albums are like that sometimes -- a person's whole store of energy up until the point they let it out for the first time! It'll be nice to listen to it again.
I used to sing "Dona, Dona" to my son when he was a baby and he loved it.

This is a folk type record with Donovan accompanying himself on guitar and harmonica. Though many people back in the day were heralding Donovan as the British Dylan, his music is really quite different. True he does play the harmonica, but Donovan has a melodic voice that Dylan, and most anyone else for that matter, could ever equal. "Josie" is one of my all time favorite Donovan songs. I heard him sing it when I was sixteen at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach, California and was really blown away.

Of course, "Catch the Wind" Donovan's first huge single is everybody's favorite (if it's not it should be) and as a bonus the single version is included on this disc as well as the LP version. But one should not overlook "Colours" when listening to Don's early work. It's one of my favorite songs. "The War Drags On," is an anti Vietnam war song and I wish I was alive back in the day to see how people reacted to it. "Candy Man" is simply outstanding. I've heard Bob Dylan's version on the bootleg "Great White Wonder," and believe me, Dylan may have turned out to be the Poet of a Generation, but Donovan beats him hands down when it comes to performing and interpreting traditional songs. Just something about his Scottish voice I guess.
