2.0 out of 5 stars Only for 'must-have-everything' fans. 20 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a fan since "Catch The Wind" first charted, this is a disappointment. I was looking for the original recordings but this is a tape of a concert with Don, his guitar and harmonica, and a few other musicians in front of, it must be said, a very appreciative audience. But all the songs are sung in a much slower tempo than the originals, with Don himself taking the occasional liberty with the lyrics. All in all, only for those who must have their collection in a constant state of completion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the greatest hits. 14 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of Donovan's greatest hits. If you like Donovan then you will like this. The previous review of the title stated this as a live album but I think this is a review for another title perhaps Donovan Acoustic Live.

2.0 out of 5 stars some songs are live recordings 23 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
there seems to be a few different versions of this cd. the one i have i bought about fifteen years ago. it has the same cd cover and the same track list, but some of the songs are live recordings and the version of catch the wind is not the original and is played very slow.the cd i have is on the epic lable (epc 450601 2) so if you want to get this cd check the lable first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Apposite 20 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
A quick peek at the discography of this whimsical Scottish singer-songwriter shows a sizeable number of compilations in his back catalogue. But few of them are superior to his first greatest hits album - this popular, sub-40 minute effort from 1969. It features the best of the folk-pop and psychedelic rock songs he made at the peak of his career in the late 1960s, in collaboration with the producer Mickie Most: the likes of 'Jennifer Juniper'; 'Mellow Yellow'; 'Sunshine Superman', and 'There Is a Mountain' are all to be found here. These sterling efforts remind the listener why acts as varied as prim folkie Judy Collins and potty-mouthed alternative rockers Butthole Surfers covered his work despite the sneering dismissals, now and then, that he was little more than a poor man's Bob Dylan. And at a lean and concise 11 songs this appositely-titled Greatest Hits is judicious enough not to try to over-inflate Donovan's cultural significance either.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Younger Generation's View On Donovan 21 Dec 2001
By College Kid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD about three years ago, when I was in my teens, and it has easily become one of my favorite albums to listen to. The lyrics and the music give an overall feeling of joy and care-free times. Although the music and the lyrics, at times, are not very complicated and do not seem to be very substantial, they are brilliantly written to enhance the values that Donovan stood for. Peace and Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Hits Are All Here 1 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Donovan's collection brings back warm, wonderful memories. His major hits are all here, no need to get anything else that contains album filler,outtakes,etc. This is FOR REAL. What a way he had with words and music, whether doing those beautiful ballads or pop-rock tunes. Great fun to play in the car,too. A major contributor to the British Invasion era of rock & roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun CD 29 Oct 2008
By JACK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this only because I wanted to sing Mellow Yellow at Karoke. After listening to the whole thing I really am enjoying it. Donovan is (was?) a real original singer for his time. He may not look like a king of pop but he sure is talented. Oh, and BTW I did GREAT on Mellow Yellow.

By Janice L. Stalcup - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have loved Donovan since the '60's! All the songs are here that I grew up listening to. The Cd replaced my worn out cassette which had replaced my worn out LP! Great quality and a low price.
