GUEST,Lin Who is yer favourite male folk singer? (165* d) RE: Who is yer favourite male folk singer? 05 Nov 16

Donovan - since I was 16 years old, ah so long, long ago. I even remember what I wore the first time I ever saw Donovan in concert in Los Angeles. I wore this cute pink mini dress with kind of puffy sleeves. I have been to see him many time over the years, the last time in Monterey, California about 6 years ago. I have just about all of his albums, vinyl, CD's Box sets and books he wrote and some movies he had a cameo role in like, "If It's Tuesday, It Must Be Belgium" and some other movies too. In the British movie called, "Poor Cow" he sings during the opening, a song called "Be Not Too Hard, For Life Is Short and Nothing is Given to Man." (Donovan is not in the movie but sings in opening scene.)

I was just listening in the car the other day to his album called, Donovan Summer Day Reflection Songs with some great songs like:

Catch the Wind, Josie, To Sing For You, Donna Donna, Ramblin' Boy,
Colours, Universal Soldier, To Try For the Sun, Jersey Thursday,
Belated Forgiveness Plea, Ballad of Geraldine, Turquoise,
Little Tin Soldier and many other songs (2 CD set)

When I saw Donovan in Monterey, California he sang this beautiful sad song called, "The Promise" a song he indicated would not be released on an album but just performed for the concert. On Youtube I have seen him perform this song at other concerts around the world.
A sad and lovely song with these beautiful heartfelt lyrics.

Yes, I am a long time fan!
