Has Bob ever sung Donovan's "Catch the Wind"?

If so, where and when?

Link?

Why would he?

Has Bob ever mentioned meeting Donovan, and 'hanging out with him' as a buddy, in the way Donovan has done in pretty much every interview or concert since 1965?

Did Dylan ever perform any of Donovan´s songs?
Do we know if he actually liked his stuff at all?

He was for sure sincere. Opinions are inflexible. Whatever he thought 55 years ago is what he'll think forevermore.

It is written. So let it be done.

Does he still talk about how he and Bob were like bros in the 60s and introduced him to pot? :lol:

I have no doubt that Donovan is sincere, but so is Joan Baez.

Sincerity is not an indicator or ability or depth. I'm really glad they didn't marry each other and have musical children - though I suppose it would have kept their mutual output in the family.

It must be a bit galling, in the end, to be seen by most people as being a footnote in someone else's career, so I suppose one should applaud their longevity, but I can't. I wish they'd both shut up.

Has Joan ever sung Catch The Wind? I bet she has. I hope to god I never hear it.

Really? All I remember is that infamous scene in which he has a go at Donovan.

Anyway, I have just heard this song, and recently played a few other Donovan´s songs (Season of the witch and a few more), and I´m afraid they haven´t stood the test of time so well

Poor Donovan. Reminds me he'll never get the respect he [doesn't] deserve.

To think Donovan was considered as some sort of equal to Bob Dylan in the 60's.

Flash in the pan.

Are you serious? Was he really? I can tell just from looking at Donovan that he's not as great as Dylan.

...the hell is this thread?

Donovan was a major artist in the 60s, the one and only proponent of American-style "folk-rock" from Britain. His best-selling records handily outsold Dylan's in the 60s, and he was deemed good enough to hang out with people like Dylan and The Beatles. His live performances were universally acclaimed. I think he made out all right. (The fact that, after the mid-70s or something, he became a burned-out hippy nutter going on about "the 60s, man!" is neither here nor there, and has nothing to do with his musical legacy.)

And, leave it to a Brit to bring up Joan Baez in a thread that has nothing to do with her, and remain deluded that she is "a footnote in someone else's career". I feel embarrassed for your ignorance.

Britney Spears has outsold Dylan as well, guess we can put her up there as Dylan and Donovan's equal.

Donovan can hang out on Kanyes pedestal. They are about equal if you ask me!

The whole "sniggering at Donovan" strand in Don't Look Back reflects badly on Dylan and his simpering sycophants, imo. The only one with the balls to stand up to Dylan was Alan Price - "He's a better guitarist than you, man". Of course Donovan was a lesser artist than Bob, he'd have been the first to admit it - but he had his own talent, and deserves better than the uninformed sneers that seem to be de rigeur among some Bobfans.

A lot of Bob's early unreleased material such as I was young when I left home from 61 showcases his guitar skills. Lots of finger picking back then too, which he later abandoned forever.
