Whilst foraging around on YouTube the other night, I came across this fantastic video of Donovan and Bob Dylan backstage at a gig in around 1966. Despite Don singing his little heart out and having lyrics that are equally as beautiful as Mr Zimmerman's (When you feel you just can't make it anymore/ With your head bowed down you're staring at the floor/Search out to me with your weary eyes/ I'll sing a song for you), he is thoroughly trumped in the folk off when Bob noncholantly pulls 'It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" out of the bag. Check out 3 mins 33 secs for the moment he knows the game is up. Anyone else think that Donovan is a bit of a David Miliband figure to Dylan's Ed? So close to glory and yet so far....
