Donovan was a special guest
Donovan was a special guest at Robin Williamson's wedding party at the tail end of the '80s when I was working for him as his secretary. Robin, who is famous as a founder member of the Incredible String Band, as well as his solo career, had just married Bina Williamson and the celebration of this happy occasion was held in Llandaff Court, which is a once stately home that now stands in a park in Cardiff.
Donovan, of course came to fame as an acoustic guitar-player and folk singer-songwriter in the late '60s when he had hits with songs like Catch The Wind and Colours. He had been hailed as Britain's answer to Bob Dylan but whilst there was a similarity in that the two young men both played the guitar and harmonica and wrote their own songs that was really as far as it went.
Donovan went on to forge a very impressive career with many hit singles and albums to his credit and a distinctive style of writing.
