"Put On, Cologne" from Donovan Woods' third album became one of his best-known tunes after it gained some recognition from radio play in Canada.
When we spoke with Woods in 2016
, he recalled, "I wrote it even before I recorded The Widowmaker
, which was the record before it. I always thought it was catchy and fun, but I didn't think it was any good. I eventually whipped it back out."
"We recorded a little demo for Don't Get Too Grand
and I didn't think it was really anything," he continued. "I thought it was just this catchy little thing, but eventually once we recorded the demo, they thought it was really good. We never recorded another version - we just put the demo right on the record."
