just been watching Heartbeat and one of the songs that came up is one of my favourite songs of all time.....

I met the artist numerous times in  1978-1980 when I was teaching in Maidenhead. a colleague of mine and friends used to drink now and then in Windsor, and this man was a friend of that colleague. we used to share rounds and chat, and every ow and then, even though shy, he would hum a tune and we'd join in.

but I have never heard it sung so beautifully as with this person, whom I also loved as an artist in the 70's.

Hope you like it.

neil.

This song was always part of my own repertoire when I played the folk clubs. I also did another of his called "The Intergalactic Laxative" - of which the less said perhaps the better! I've heard/seen Donovan sing and been interviewed plenty of times and he's always struck me as one the clearest-thinking and beautifully-spoken people around.
The only folkie who comes even close is Al Stewart, whom I was chuffed to see get a Lifetime Achievement award at the BBC Folk thing recently. I never met Donovan but I did once get horribly drunk in the company of Mr Stewart and a bunch of lunatics called The Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra when I lived and worked in Bristol in the early 70's. Then there was Fred Wedlock...... o happy daze!

I have a cassette that I bought in the first couple of years of  my uni days....Best of Donovan......haven't been able to play it since they started putting CD players in cars........but what a great compilation it is.

And I cant even say Intergalactic Laxative without stumbling over it, never mind sing it, but he is a gem. it still says he is active on the scene, but I've not seen him tour in years, sadly.

then there was the time when I was run over by Barry Sheene.

was at the press day of the motor show the year that bazza had had his near fatal accident on his Soozie.........

was watching a display of ladies strutting their stuff on the Porker stand wen my foot was run over by a heavy object.

I looked down and there was Barry in his wheelchair......

he looked up at me and said "sorry mate, haven't got used to 4 wheels yet!, mind you, [slapping the leg with all the steel rods and bolts attached too]..........I haven't gotten used to 2 f*****g wheels either."

we both laughed uncontrollably as I said....."keep practicing mate"......we shook hands and went our separate ways.
