40 Year Itch: Donovan's Intimate Performance


On November 2, 1972, the BBC2 aired Donovan: An Intimate Performance featuring the singer. Sitting on a carpeted platform with two guitars and a harmonica, Donovan intimately performed:
01. Jennifer Juniper
02. There Is A Mountain
03. Catch The Wind
04. The Ordinary Family
05. Lovely Princess
06. People Call Me The Pied Piper
07. A Well Known Has-Been
08. Happiness Runs
09. Colours
10. Sailing Homeward
11. Cosmic Wheels/Maria Magenta
12. The Pee Song
13. Mellow Yellow

"The Pee Song", heard above, came from 1971's H.M.S. Donovan, his second album for children.
By the time the show aired this August 1972 performance, it had been nearly four years since Donovan had a Top 20 hit single in the UK.
