Donovan’s “Riki Tiki Tavi” appeared on the singer’s 1970 LP Open Road. Open Road being both the album’s title and a band moniker. Yes, this was Donovan’s attempt at playing in an actual band and featured plenty of the artist rocking the electric guitar.
Grab a listen to the single below (it’s more quirky than rocking, but it does grow on you).
