"Catch the Wind" by Donovan

It was fifty years today that "Catch the Wind" by Donovan entered the British singles chart. It marked Donovan's debut on the chart, and "Catch the Wind" would be Donovan's first hit on both sides of the Pond. Ultimately "Catch the Wind" would go to #4 on the British singles chart. In the United States it peaked at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Catch the Wind" would be the first of several hits that Donovan would have in both the United States and the United Kingdom in the late Sixties. Donovan would continue to hit the top forty on both sides of the Atlantic until 1969. It was that year that "Barabajagal (Love Is Hot)" became his last song to hit the top forty on either side of the Atlantic.

Without further ado, here is "Catch the Wind" by Donovan.
