Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words
It's unbelievable. He [ Donovan] was one of Britain's leading, hit-making solo stars of the sixties and a great international artist. And now it's almost as though he'd never existed.
A song written by donovan, the wispy folk-rock minstrel who reigned during the sixties. Originally she couldn't decide whether to cover a donovan or a captain beefheart composition, but the former won the day after a number of odd events...
Like the evening she was half-watching the crystal gayle show on telly and half-discussing the dilemma when, lo and behold, donovan appeared as crystal's guest star. It was like he was planted in my room, exclaimed kate. I couldn't believe it! (1981, What I Did On My Holidays)
