The Donovan most people are familiar with is the cosmic flower child who gave us such hits as "Sunshine Superman" and "Mellow Yellow." But in 1965, Donovan's music was in a much different stage of development. As heard on his first full-length album WHAT'S BIN DID AND WHAT'S BIN DID, Donovan's early sound was a very basic folk-revival approach heavily influenced by the likes of Woody Guthrie (whose "Car Car" is here), Ramblin' Jack Elliott (who had became something of a cult figure in the UK), and of course, Bob Dylan, to whom the young Donovan was compared ad nauseam by the British press.
Straight-ahead folkie tunes such as "Josie" and "Remember the Alamo" rub shoulders with the jug-band blues "Keep on Truckin'" and the downbeat, jazzy "Cuttin' Out." The best-known song here is "Catch the Wind," a romantic ballad that became one of Donovan's early staples. While the youthful singer-songwriter sounds confident and impressive here, this was but the first chapter of a story that would take some interesting twists and turns over the course of the next few years.
