Overview

This collection has the same sequence and tracks as EMI's earlier 2002 release Sunshine Superman: The Best of Donovan, although it sports a title inversion and different cover art. It remains a nice introduction to Donovan's peak years in the mid- to late '60s, including both his Baroque flower power material for Epic Records like "Sunshine Superman" (presented here in an extended version), the fairy tale funky "Hurdy Gurdy Man," and the sublime, Blakean "Sand and Foam," as well as his earlier and more folky recordings for Pye Records (they were released in the U.S. by Hickory Records) like "Catch the Wind," "Colours," the stylistically prescient "Sunny Goodge Street," and the beautiful "Turquoise" (which is as gorgeous as it is ridiculous). The sides included here are among the best examples of Donovan's unique Woody Guthrie meets Timothy Leary style, and having both the Pye and Epic material side by side is a definite plus, making this set (whatever its title) a great introduction to the flower power king.
