    nicorebel: Donovan was heavily influenced by Dylan, especially when Dylan visited England in 1963(64?). That said, Donovan was very good in his own right and this may be his best song (subject to personal taste) among the many he recorded.

    this rocks. Donovan is very talented - think I prefer him to Dylan.

    Makes me hope the 'Hurdy Gurdy Man' & 'Atlantis' will also pop up on my play list. This one does bring back memories of Halloweens and Girl Friends in the past.
