This review is from: The Hurdy Gurdy Man (Audio CD)
Donovan's seventh studio album is one of the best. Hurdy Gurdy Man has some brilliant songs and creative production. The psychedelic elements are still there and there are touches of Jazz, rock and pop. The album had its biggest success in America due to the continuing contractual dispute in the UK that had prevented the correct version of Sunshine Superman and Mellow Yellow from being released.
The majority of the album was written after visiting Rishikesh in India to study under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi along with The Beatles.
For a great example of good sixties pop creativity you cannot go wrong with this album.
This CD issue is just great with good remastered sound and bonus tracks.
