  1. I love Donovan's music. That said, he wrote his own songs and did a few covers, but recorded very few folk songs--actually none, unless you count Guthrie's Car Car. Fairport wrote their own songs but also recorded many electric versions of English folk songs (hence folk rock), as did bands like Pentangle and Steeleye Span. I don't think Donovan was much of an influence on any of them. Anyway, back on topic--many thanks to Donovan for making this manifestation possible, and let's hope it sparked Jimmy's taste for what it feels like to play live in front of a huge crowd. Oh, and regar
  2. For me, Fairport Convention. :-)
  3. He also claims in the book to have invented folk rock, among other things. I love the guy's music, but . . . Here's one more pic--
  4. Exactly--baby steps, Jimmy . .
  5. Those are the same pics as in the link in the first post, but still great to see--I just checked to see if Halfin had anything up, but not yet.
  6. Just to repeat what I said on the other thread, he apparently played on Sunshine Superman, along with Shawn Phillips and a tabla player (and Donovan, of course), and the whole thing was filmed.
  7. You go ahead and start it, there doesn't seem to be anything new coming in right now! But yes, it does deserve its own thread.
  8. Didn't see the follow up posts--hope this does turn out to be a manifestation, involving Jimmy doing more than holding the guitar, and a filmed one!! (Boy, who looks better these days, Jimmy or Donovan? ) According to a Twitter update to crabbygirl's link, Jimmy did play. Also I just read another Twitter post that said "Donovan backed by Jimmy Page, Shawn Phillips, and a tabla player." Says that he played on Sunshine Superman, don't know if he played on anything else. But there were cameras filming the whole thing! Apparently just Sunshine Superman.
  9. I think that was just suggested humorously as a "you never know." Still, you never know!
  10. Look after yourself and get well soon, Strider--oh, and the post is on its way to Ev.
  11. I fail to see how wanting to hear new music from Jimmy equates to demanding that he "prove himself." What music lover DOESN'T want to hear new music from him?
  12. I see--I thought it had some connection to the previous posts.
  13. The book definitely deserved those awards, and the Japanese definitely deserved the proceeds from those shirts (yes, I got one). What was the point of the clip?
  14. All those great memories, and my first thought was--you wrote all that on a cellphone with your left thumb?? Nice one, Strider--Ev would be proud of you. Look forward very much to the rest.
  15. Yet when Robert Plant does it . .
  16. It is tomorrow in England ---bittersweet birthday greetings to you, Bonzo.
  17. Yes, this was when they were recording BCW (and the airplane flew overhead).
  18. Glad to see the Secret Sisters in there. Glad for Robert and Buddy, too, though a tad awkward with them being up against each other. (When I read that article I genuinely wondered what an "overdo" award was--maybe something technical, like for overdubbing? Then, of course, I realized it was--according to them--an overdue award.)
  19. Thought the last few hadn't been posted in this thread. If they have, ignore me.
