"Catch The Wind" by Donovan

Birthday wishes go out today to Scotland's own Donovan, whose hippified folk sounds - in songs like Mellow Yellow, Sunshine Superman, and the superlative Catch the Wind - virtually defined the Sixties for millions of people...

Catch the Wind was Donovan's first single, and appeared on his debut album What's Bin Did and What's Bin Hid - which was released in the UK in May 1965 but not in the US until the following month; the song eventually reached #4 in the United Kingdom and #23 in the United States.  It was followed by Colours, which was equally as popular at home but didn't fare as well overseas.
