"Catch The Wind" by Donovan.

OK, more 60's: Even though this Scottish singer/songwriter's actual first recording was the now extremely rare "Donna Donna/Car Car", his first "official" release was this '65 folk classic. Inspired by Linda Lawrence (then Brian Jones' girlfriend), whom he married in '70. Has been likened to Dylan's "Chimes Of Freedom". Peaked at #4 in the UK and at #23 in the U.S. Heavy echo on the vocals, backed by the strings section of the London Philharmonic and The Ivy League on harmony. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Green Onions" by Booker T and The M.G.'s. Green Onions was a cat that hung around the STAX studio and had a funky stride. BTW, M.G. stands for "Musical Group" NOT the British sports car.
