Donovan Phillips Leitch, from Glasgow Scotland, burst on the scene here in 1965. It was obvious he was influenced by Bob Dylan when I heard him sing Catch The Wind...
For years I thought that was
a Dylan song. It was only when I discovered YouTube and looked for it that I realized my error. It is a beautiful song. It was the first ringtone I ever paid money for! Even more recently I finally figured out this line in the lyrics: Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.
I thought his words were directed at someone who loved him back and that together they could do anything, even catch the wind. Amazing how one little line can change the whole meaning of a song.
