Richard Thompson backing Donovan makes sense to me. For my money, the most interesting music Donovan made were those slightly jazzy arrangements with thick groovy double bass. Ever heard "Sunny Goodge Street"? That's a lovely piece of music, kind of like somehwere in between Eleanor Rigby and Astral Weeks-era Van Morrison.

Yes, Donovan is an utter prat who has made lots of dire music. But that's not to say he hasn't, just occasionally, made some pretty good music too.
