This review is from: Lady of the Stars (Audio CD)
Back in the early 1980s I became interested in Donovan and his music. Donovan had been most succesful during the 1960s and early 1970s. At that time it was very difficult to get hold of any of his back catalogue on vinyl. His album success had declined anyway and in order to gain interest from record companies Donovan decided to update a few songs for his next album.
In 1983 Donovan recorded the new album which was released at the beginning of 1984. This was that album,. Lady of the Stars. It was great to get a brand new album from Donovan. For this album there were new versions of Sunshine Superman and Season of the Witch. Both tracks originally on the Sunshine Superman album in the mid 1960s were very popular. Also there is an update version of Local Boy chops wood that appeared on the album Donovan from 1977. There is another update with the song Boy for every girl, that appeared on the Essence to Essence album from 1977. The last update is for the title track Lady of the Stars originally written for his wife Linda. Finally the album does have five new songs. The albums new tracks were welcome additions and the updated tracks only add familiarity and I much prefer the original versions. However as an album it is not too bad. Not the best Donovan album by any means but it was welcome back in the 1980s and the new and more original five tracks make it worth it.
There are some notable guest apearances including Graham Nash, Jim Horn, Pete carr, Wilton Felder and Dave Mason.
The album has appeared before on CD but never with the correct art work or track running order. Till I See You Again (Lady of the Stars) or Forever Gold [Lady Of The Stars] or Golden Hits or Golden Tracks. If you have these editions and are not bothered about the original art work then its probably not worth re buying this issue, However This issue is very good since it has all the original art work and the correct track running order.
