Donovan 6/1967

Review

{$Donovan}'s {^Sunshine Superman} appeared in two different versions, one in America and another -- slightly later owing to the need of the artist to disentangle himself from his contract with {@Pye Records} -- in England. {@Beat Goes On} has reissued the U.K. version, complete with its extra tracks. The latter include the breezy {\jazz}-flavored {\folk} number {&"The Observation,"} the elegantly languid {&"Writer in the Sun"} (which ended up on {^Mellow Yellow} in America), the brooding, ornately arranged {\psychedelic} mood piece {&"Hampstead Incident,"} and {&"Sand and Foam"} (also pushed onto {^Mellow Yellow} in America), the latter a beautifully stripped-down acoustic number with about as high a haunt-count as any melody ever generated from {$Donovan}'s pen. Missing from this edition of the album are {&"Ferris Wheel,"} {&"The Trip,"} and {&"The Fat Angel,"} which dated from the spring 1966 American recording sessions that went into the U.S. version of the LP. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
