Nigel recalls meeting Donovan at a party at P J Proby's house, where he was
crying on the stairs. Later they worked together on
THERE IS AN OCEAN, a
film of Don playing with his band
OPEN ROAD on a voyage around the
Greek islands; this was a project devised by Don to take advantage of the fact
that he was to be a tax exile for a year. Don suggested the idea after
Mick
Jagger
's plans for a Grail Quest film to star Mick and Marianne Faithfull -
which was actually scripted by
Nigel and Christopher Gibbs - were abandoned
by Mick in favour of a US tour by the
Stones.

Don spent a good deal of time on
Cromwell Road, both at 101 and also at the
home of his artist friends who designed album covers for him.
