Weird

I`m in the middle of downloading his greatest hits album.

Been aware of him for years , he did a duet with Alice Cooper on Billion Dollar Babies.

Donovan was a legend. The only times I ever seem to listen to him is when I find a compilation album in someone else's cd case and get excited.

Anyone see the Futurama episode with him in it? He sings the Lost City of Atlanta and busts into the Atlantis chorus...oh, and Zoidberg builds a house under the sea.

That sounds madly awesome. I totally have to watch it.
I love his pop singles but his folk music is crappy. I'd say you're better off with the greatest hits album unless you're into mediocre folk.

I'm not a huge Donovan fan, but his album A Gift From A Flower To A Garden, despite being unquestionably the fruitiest album ever made by anybody ever, is actually really good.

Most accurate description of Donovan's music ever.

Catch The Wind, what a song! He had a lot of great material but it seems like everytime I read about him, someone brings up him & Bob Dylan.


Didn't something happen along the lines of Donavan playing his hero Dylan a song, & Bob just looking at him and saying something like "..I like it, I even wrote it.." or something??

Also, isn't Donovan mentioned in a Dylan song??

I quite like his idiosyncratic take on folk music but for what it's worth my favourite song is Hurdy Gurdy man, on which he is backed by Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin.

Downloaded the greatest hits a few weeks ago after I saw Sunshine Superman on some BBC4 show about singer-songwriters. I really knew nothing about him, but Hurdy Gurdy Man and Mellow Yellow are lovely.
