by BenefitOfMrKite • 85,693 views

Some songs, wich Paul and Donovan recorded during the sessions for Mary Hopkins "Postcard" LP, November 1968-January 1969, wich they sent to George, who was in hospital, I think. Tracks: 1. How Do...

Jesus..I can feel the acid emanating from their pores from here.

This is awesome! Do you know if any of these songs were used in Donovan's album? I know "Blackbird" and "Heather" are Paul's and they appeared in White Album and a solo one he had...

Did Donovan pick it up from Joan Baez? Did she ever play with John? We must find out!

@drbrookman I so agree, great comment! I once read Paul was singing in the background for Atlantis.

shut up. MANY people adored his work. Besides, if he was a dork, why is he hanging out with Sir Paul?

I stand corrected ... I must have been influenced by hose electrical bananas...

Okay...I suppose I could copy the audio here somehow....I've never heard of this in all my years as a Beatle freak. I love Donovan, possibly the most misunderstood figure of the 60's. Fantastically diverse writer and performer.

D. P. Leitch magpie my eye. At 8:30 Don plays a picking pattern similar to that used in Dear Prudence...hmm...But I'm sure Joan Baez and John Lennon met at least and maybe played guitar together, maybe more...

Donovan would kill Paul McCartney when it comes to music if Paul went solo. But would all 4 Beatles defeat Donovan? and what if, John Lennon and Paul vs Donovan. 2 on 1, pretty interesting. I also wanna point out Atlantis and Hey Jude are pretty similar.

You say that as if there's something odd about that. I have no shame in thinking he were a genius. Nor thinking Donovan sounds a tit here. ;)

I thought this was recorded while rehearsing songs for Mary Hopkin's lp "Postcard" you can hear her giggling and singing in the background

@BenefitOfMrKite so they three beatles recorded an lp for harrison???

My names Heather :D this just kinda made my day.

@4FabBEATLES I have to respectfully disagree with you. I'm sure if you do a little research, you will find that Paul was one of the back up singers for the song, Atlantis :)

Somebody strikes a match at 2:06. It's a safe bet that whatever it is they are smoking is probably contributing to their seemingly festive mood. Mary Hopkin's "Postcard" LP did include three Donovan tunes, but not these ones.

Sounds like they are all there. or hes talking to one of them, and the other one was like really quiet. idk man.

Awesome clip, thank you! Anybody know if its true about Paul singing in the background of Atlantis? Anybody think there is something fishy about John Lennon's assassination?

@chgojack1 DON WROTE A LINE FOR A BEATLES SONG.....SKY OF BLUE SEA OF GREEN........

Loved Donovan. Some of his obsure work is really good. There was this one double CD that came in a box, and it had NO hit songs on it, just basically him and guitar. It had the song "Tinker & The Crab" on it. Very cool stuff.

Lennon learned the Dear Prudence picking pattern from Donovan.

@chgojack1 there's not proof Paul sang on Atlantis. he's not listed in the liner credits, and even so, it was recorded 1968 which was a year Paul mostly stayed at his farm in Scotland- so I doubt he'd go halfway across he world to La just to record one song. It's probably just a rumour to get people to listen to/buy the album or song.

No. John supposedly had a crush on her, though.

Seems like Dylan was inspiration in mid 60's and Donovan was in late 60's! Good post though and thanks for sharing these rare songs and videos!!!

I think Paul and Donovan with the help of George could beat up that girl on the right.
Report spam or abuse
If Paul went solo? that would mean the Beatles would have to break up. That'll never happen.

donovan was such an influence on paul and john........they used to try and hide the chords they were playing from each other.......donovan was also a huge influence on british music.......KNIGHTHOOD.

I hope everyone realizes that Heather song is for Paul's daughter. Many many years later he did release a different song called Heather, but for she who shall remain nameless (HM).

where can i get this 3 abbey road bootleg. online? in stores?

@chgojack1 it's possible that Paul sang backing on Atlantis, but not 100% guaranteed or proven . lets put it that way. there are alot of rumor, but not physical proof since Paul never said anything even in =his authorized biography and hes not credited anywhere on the album liner notes. its just one of those uncertain mysteries

Wonderful! Thank you for posting.

I believe Donovan was the one who showed John Lennon how to do Travis style picking which he used on Dear Prudence and Julia.He woulda made a cool 5th Beatle:)

Actually Donovan dropped out of the scene for a while - on purpose.

I dont know, i think theres a reason Paul is remembered and most people have to stop and go "Donovan? .... Oh that guy?"
