“Land Of Gish” is a song played by Donovan during an informal session with Paul McCartney, during the recording of Mary Hopkin’s album “Post Card“. It seems to be an original song written by Donovan, or a made-up-on-the-spot song.
Transcript of Paul McCartney and Donovan recorded during the sessions for Mary Hopkin’s Postcard LP as heard on the “No. 3 Abbey Road N.W. 8” bootleg CD. (reproduced from https://davidgray101.tripod.com/PaulandDonovan.html )
Donovan begins playing his guitar.
Donovan: Listen to this…
Mary Hopkins: What’s this song? I love that.
Donovan then launches into singing Land of Gish. Shortly after, the tape fades, and the session (at least this recording of it) ends.
Paul McCartney has never played this song in concert.
