    The genesis of this song goes back to an evening at folk music notable Bert Jansch's house in north London, when fellow acoustic master John Renbourn showed Donovan a D ninth chord. From that Donovan built up a riff that, according to the memories of those present, he then played solidly for the next seven hours.

    Cool trivia: Actress and painter Ione Skye, who starred in "Say Anything," "River's Edge," and "Zodiac," is Donovan's daughter. Although originally written and recorded by Donovan, a version by The Pandamonium was released in the United Kingdom as a single in November 1966 (CBS 202462), while Donovan's version was finally released in June 1967 on the Pye Records compilation Sunshine Superman. (The song was never released as a single but it became a very popular song with fans, enough so that Donovan himself played it live more than most of his other hits.) The recording features Bobby Ray on bass and "Fast" Eddie Hoh on drums. The hauntingly eerie guitar is provided by Jimmy Page, then a noted session guitarist working in England. https://goo.gl/zRThZo
