Format: Audio CD
Barabajagal was Donovan's sixth studio album of original material in three years, and unfortunately it shows. In circumstances reminiscent of the Sunshine Superman (2005 Digital Remaster) (Stereo) album, much of it was in the can for well over a year before being released in America, and Pye in the UK chose not to release it at all.

It features the hit single Goo Goo Barajagal (Love Is Hot)/Trudi (Bed With Me), both of which feature the Jeff Beck Group, and are about as sexualized and as heavy as Donovan ever gets. Trudi was actually a reworked and partially reworded version of The Lay Of The Last Tinker from A Gift From A Flower To A Garden: The Little Ones album. Atlantis, a previous single, which was coupled in America with the disarmingly childlike, if less successful anti-Viet Nam War song To Susan In The West Coast Waiting, is also a highly striking and atmospheric piece of work. What was used to fill up the rest of the album was distinctly below par, however, with the worst examples actually predisposing one by context against the rest.

Superlungs My Supergirl, a song he had attempted and discarded twice in 1966, is somewhat Jeff Beck-lite and is perfectly fine, with some nice guitar work from Big Jim Sullivan, though Donovan's boast at the age of 22 that the girl he loves is "only fourteen but she knows how to draw" might raise more eyebrows now than then.

This EMI remastered version of the album "Barabajagal" is truly a release of the previously unreleased if I ever saw one! No less than 13 previously unreleased tracks are featured on this CD. Some of them are alternative versions of already released songs (e.g. "New Years Resolution"), but some of them is material, which has not been released ever before. An example of that is the song "Stromberg Twins", which was originally meant for "Barabajagal", but never made it unto the record. Or the amazing songs "Little White Flower" and "Lord of the Universe", which have gone unreleased until now. Strange, but true.
But in ones excitement about all the previously unreleased material on this CD one should not forget "Barabajagal" itself. "Barabajagal" is very much a worthwhile album to lend an ear. From the upbeat hills of "Superlungs My Supergirl" and "Barabajagal" to the introspective seashore of "Happiness Runs" and "To Susan On the West Coast Waiting" this album addresses a wide spectrum of moods and insights.

Barababajagal and Trudi (In bed with me) with the JEFF BECK GROUP is a must ! We find a lot of bonus tracks : "runaway"
(alternate take of "ONE NIGNT IN TIME" Japanese release) - "The swan" (alternate take "Lord of the Reedy river" HMS DONOVAN) - "A poor man's Sunshine" & "Lord of the Universe" (Find long time after on "BEAT CAFE") - "Marjorie" (alternate take "Marjorie Marjoraine" LOVE IS ONLY FEELING the last only LP release, not on CD !!!!!) - "Little white Flower" (only released on the bootleg LP OLD FASHIONNED PICTURE BOOK) - "Good morning Mr Wind" (alternate take HMS DONOVAN) - "Palais Girl" (1968 studio recording for shelved proposed album). All the other songs sound smooth and pretty : Where is she ? , The love song, To Susan..., and of course ATLANTIS (the hit used for the Walt Disney picture ATLANTIS re-recorded with NO ANGELS not this version here).
John Lennon said : Listen to this man, he's a poet. He is as important as we are (The Beatles), I'm in France and his music came to me. He is a major poet.

'Barabajagal' is a Donovan Leitch album which often divides the critics and fans alike, but I have always had a real soft spot it. This was the Scottish poet's final studio record of the 1960s, which was the man's most commercially successful decade as a recording artist, and initially, was only released in America, where it peaked in their charts at a respectable no. 23, but never in Britain, due to a running contractual dispute.

The most famous song on this Mickie Most produced album has got to be the title track, which is a relatively heavy rocker, with it's backing provided by The Jeff Beck Group, and this was to become Donovan's last top 40 hit single in any country. Other gems include the upbeat rocker 'Superlungs (My Supergirl)', which was originally recorded during the 'Sunshine Superman' sessions but neglected, with it's fabulous psychedelic effect, the gentle, laid-back 'Where Is She', the pure joy which is the sing-along track 'Happiness Runs', the sheer brilliance of the song writing of the atmospheric anti-war tune 'To Susan on the West Coast Waiting', and 'Atlantis', which had Paul McCartney on backing vocals, and is a folky song so good that it's even mentioned on the front cover. The others aren't quite as noteworthy, but I do enjoy the very silly but charming 'I Love My Shirt', which was aimed at children, and really is lovely in it's innocence.

Whilst not as strong as Donovan's previous offerings, there are plenty of little treats to taste on 'Barabajagal'. If I was to rate this album based on it's original listing, I would still have given it a five star review.
