True, Fairytale's highlights -- "Sunny Goodge Street," "Jersey Thursday," and "The Summer Day Reflection Song" -- use a sense of impressionism pioneered by Dylan, but Donovan flipped Dylan's weariness on its head.

The folkie "Colours," already a hit before the album's release, is also here though without Donovan's harmonica. A few of his songs are inconsequential and tossed-off "Oh Deed I ...

The folkie "Colours," already a hit before the album's release, is also here though without Donovan's harmonica. A few of his songs are inconsequential and tossed-off "Oh Deed I Do," "Circus of Sour", but a few of these "Candy Man" especially succeed too, thanks to Donovan's effervescent delivery. [A 2002 Castle reissue added six bonus tracks, including a version of "Universal Soldier" and the B-side "Hey Gyp The Slowness."]
