This is the most glorious evocation of the Summer of Love ever committed to record. Gentle, ethereal and, yes, downright drippy. If you are horrified by this, you will hate this record. But for we gentle souls who remember what the world felt like in 1967 and for whom Donovan was our spokesman, lie back and enjoy this quite beautiful music and imagine yourself in a more beautiful time and place. Recorded in Los Angeles in September 1967 with spare backing from Don's acoustic guitar, a flute and a double bass, with a string quartet joining in occasional. Mellow is the word!
