7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By The BlackFerret on 7 July 2006
Format: Audio CD
This was Donovan's 2nd album & it caught him in a transitional mood from the gimmicky Dylan-impersonator to mega pop-star with Sunshine Superman etc.

It was 12 tracks & the bonus 6 here are from Universal soldier EP en bloc & both sides of the contemporaneous single Turquoise. This is a man opening up in front of the mike, and a man standing back from the groovy maelstrom in front of him to observe and reflect-at least on the album proper.

The EP is back to protest songs, but all 4 are sung with more passion and belief than expected, considering 3 of them are written by other people.

I've recently got this on CD, around 37 years since I last heard the vinyl-glad I did, it really is a side of Donovan that you didn't see enough of then & it stands comparison with Scottish folk-based contemporaries Bert Jansch,Al Stewart & The Incredible String Band.

And THAT's praise!

Format: Audio CD
This 1965 album, recorded for Pye, was the second of Donovan's career, and the second he released in that year. It finds Donovan in a pensive, reflective mood but edging towards the slightly psychedelic style he would later be noted for. Clearly influenced by Bob Dylan, it contains a share of songs that aim at social commentary in a simple guitar/singer/songwriter folk style, along with a few simple love songs and some rather interesting ballads. The opening track, the delightful `Colours', is one of his best works. A simple, understated love song it has long been a firm favourite of mine. The album then meanders and meditates on the world, sometimes with a sense of naive awe and joy, sometimes with a darkly cynical edge. But always with a great tune and lyric. The original album closed with `The Little Tin Soldier' and `The Ballad of Geraldine', two tales that border on the twee (especially tin soldier), but are sung with such conviction that they really work rather well. It's an excellent album.

The re-issue is excellent. Great remastering, interesting extras (a contemporary EP, with the classic `Universal Soldier') and single) that add to the programme and a great set of liner notes. It's a great place for people to start their classic Donovan collection. 5 stars.

I love this album, and it's certainly his best one. Just listen to the track called Geraldine. Exquisite is the only word. You really ought to get this if you like Donovan.

Being around in my teens in the 60/70s I bought this because it was a bit of cheap nostalgia, but on listening to those familiar numbers again it reminded my what a great writer/performer Donovan is, his lyrics are as fresh today as all those years ago.
