Donovan, live at the BBC 1965 - 1969

Donovan Leitch burst into the UK hit parade in March 1965 with a number 4 hit for Pye Records in Catch The Wind. This recording had been preceded by a three-week run on the TV programme Ready Steady Go, unprecedented for an artist yet to release his first record. While Granada had Ready Steady Go, the BBC had a handful of contemporary light programmes for radio to host the ‘happening’ current acts such as Saturday Club, Folk Room and later; Nightride and Top Gear. Here, we travel back to 1965, where Donovan made numerous trips into BBC’s Paris Theatre Studios, and where he recorded these 30 songs between 1965-1969 included on this release, accompanying himself on guitar with additional stand-up bass provided by Spike Heatley and Danny Thompson. This landmark release also includes fascinating interviews with host Brian Matthew. Professionally re-mastered original broadcasts with background liners and rare archival photos.
