Donovan 12//1967

Review

{\Rock} music's first two-LP box set, {^A Gift from a Flower to a Garden} overcomes its original shortcomings and stands out as a prime artifact of the flower-power era that produced it. The music still seems a bit fey, and overall more spacy than the average {$Moody Blues} album of this era, but the sheer range of subjects and influences make this a surprisingly rewarding work. Essentially two albums recorded simultaneously in the summer of 1967, the electric tracks include {$Jack Bruce} among the session players. The acoustic tracks represent an attempt by {$Donovan} to get back to his old sound and depart from the heavily electric singles ({&"Sunshine Superman,"} etc.) and albums he'd been doing -- it is folkier and bluesier (in an English {\folk} sense) than much of his recent work. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
