If you take the song "Sweet Home Alabama" out of their catalog, Lynyrd Skynyrd becomes a better band by easily 40%.

It might be lessor Young but Neil Young with Crazy Horse - Everybody Knows This is Nowhere (1969) doesn't deserve it's 1 star

I would wager the vast majority of people have no idea who Donovan even is (was?), so no.

I myself don't know him all that well (I do like Season of the Witch), but I seriously doubt his oeuvre is in any way comparable to Dylan's in variety and ambition. Am I wrong ?

You could argue that I don't know Dylan well enough, but I think I've heard all his greatest hits by now and I'll put "Hurdy Gurdy Man" and "Sunshine Superman" above them all and "Mellow Yellow" above most. What brought me to post this was "Catch the Wind" which sounds like Donovan doing a Dylan cover and I prefer the Donovan song.

I asssumed what brought the comparison on was Donovan's role in Dont Look Back, so that's a funny coincidence.
