5.0 out of 5 stars A gem, 5 Mar 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sunshine Superman (Audio CD)
This album and Mellow Yellow saw Donovan at his peak. The jazzy arrangements by John Cameron developed a new sound for him that unfortunately was not sustained afterwards. The best songs on this CD will surely stand as Donovan's masterpieces. The first (title) track does good enough service as a hit single warm-up, Legend of Girl Child Linda is long and veers slightly towards tweeness, but after that the album hits its stride with a succession of masterpieces. Distinctive arrangements - jazzy strings (Bert's Blues), guitars electric and acoustic, & sitars that actually work musically (the trancy Fat Angel). Rhythms hit a slow groove (Season of the Witch; Fat Angel), Sound textures luxuriate (Guinevere, Celeste). If you want to try out Donovan this would be the place to start.
