For me, hearing Donovan's music in the 70's from the 60's added further confirmation that I was born in the wrong decade. I didn't always understand this Glasgow-born poet's music (take this song, "Mellow Yellow", for instance) but "the British Bob Dylan" has his share of great songs, including "Hurdy-Gurdy Man", "Catch the Wind", "Sunshine Superman" and many others.
He stopped performing for a long while but apparently is still active here and there these days, and was on tour last year. A most deserving induction in my view and here's a bit of music to celebrate!
Here's also a link to a brief article and an eight minute interview of the artist from 2006. (from National Public Radio's "Here and Now" )
