I had to buy a new copy recently because I misplaced the old one. The music is great, but The problem, and I think it has to do with iTunes, is that only about half of the songs will transfer or even play when I uploaded the cd to the computer.
I have a pretty new IMAC, Album), so it should work well. I think the problem is with iTunes. Have had similar problems with some other CD's as well, and I understand that Apple is replacing iTunes soon with something else.
Just thought it would be good to warn folks who want to put CD's on their computer, and transfer them to other devices, that the system has some flaws, and it appears from my recent experience, to be getting more flawed. Donovan was with the Beatles in Rishikesh during what might be the most creative two month holiday in music history. D taught John his guitar finger picking technique, later heard on "Julia" and "Dear Prudence" and the Beatles wrote most of the White Album and part of Abbey Road there.
I've always wondered why Paul hasn't gone back for some additional inspiration I'd like to report Donovan also wrote my favorite song of his, "Catch the Wind," in Rishikesh, but it was written and recorded several years before. Great, melodic, word twisty music nobody writes anymore. Interesting and beautiful songs, surprisingly varied.
Donovan's interest in music always extended well beyond the genres with which many casual listeners may have associated him since the s, and a listen to this collection of his hits from that early era of popular success reveals much of his breadth.
A LP enjoyable journey through one talented Scotsman's musical imagination. Thank you, Donovan Leich. Donovan had a strong mystical, spiritual edge and a quality of educated refinement and erudition which not only fit right in but also gave the era some class.
This collection is a very good summary of what Donovan had Album) offer. The versions of "Catch The Wind" and "Colors" on this CD are the original folk acoustic versions, as opposed to the rock-band versions found on the original LP of the greatest hits.
Why this was done, I don't know, but it's OK with me, because that is how I first knew Donovan, and his evolution into a rock artist had a similar shock value, although lesser, to Bob Dylan's.
The thing to remember is that both were folk artists first, and they brought that sensibility to rock music, thereby changing it. And change it they did! I love "Epistle To Dippy" because of the mindbending Album) and the tight, tight production - a most excellent track, one of my absolute favorites. Also, the hot book at the time was "Valley of the Dolls", which had a main character named Jennifer. I always associated that song with her, and it took on added poignancy when Sharon Tate, who played Jennifer in the film, was murdered.
And "Barabajagal" - "Love is hot, Truth is molten What else can I say? If you want to explore Donovan more deeply, the "Sunshine Superman" album is a masterpiece, with my favorite tracks being "The Trip", "Guinevere" and "Celeste". They sound like a nasally B Dylan. I have a different greatest hits on the way. Maybe the two songs will be better on that one. To quote DT the Idiot "sad". One person found this helpful. Maybe it's because of where I live, or we're in a retro-fad again, but Donovan sure gets some props when friends come over and hear him Sunshine Supermanning through my windows.
Or maybe there's no expiration date on good music, and I just bought a copy of this off Amazon as a stocking stuffer. It's got all the big hits that I was too little to hear the first time around but rediscovered in the late '70s', and although one reviewer said that these aren't the original recordings, I like what's here and think that the quality's great.
See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. The original and first Greatest Hits compilation was released in January and although this CD edition shares the same picture cover it does not have the original album release content. The best of Donovan sunshine superman, re mastered with yellow cover and 22 tracks is better I find this issue a bit frustrating because on one hand we have a great selection of music tracks from the wonderful Donovan.
But it also tries to pretend to be the original Greatest Hits album from I say pretend because it has tracks in the wrong order, has added tracks and two tracks replaced with alternative versions but still uses the same picture sleeve But the original issue was significant in its release at the time and stands out as not just a greatest hits album but almost a new album in its own right, And this CD edition that borrows the originals picture cover and art work is good but they have changed the integrity of the original by changing two tracks for alternative versions.
For a start it collected three singles that were previously unreleased on any album. Epistle to Dippy, There is a Mountain and Lalena. Ok, those tracks are included here so that is fine. The album also included the previously un released longer version of Sunshine Superman. Also on here so again that is fine.
These two songs had of course been two of the most significant hits for Donovan in the early days and the record company LP Donovan was now signed to, Epic, could not get the rights to obtain or release the original recordings.
So rather than leave out two of the biggest hit songs they just re recorded them in But to save legal complications and to take the chance to do things differently Donovan came up with new arrangements for these new re recordings. Now these versions were slower with full backing band and lavish productions. They do sound different and do lack the vitality of the original recordings and on this CD issue they have re instated the original recordings from which for some people will be preferable since they are the more familiar versions that were actually hits and it is understandable why this has been done, But it is also a shame that those alternative versions of those two songs have been lost.
This edition has changed the running order of the tracks from the original release and added four other tracks that were hits after the original album was released. The running order of the tracks is different from the original edition and has two tracks left out in favour of the alternative versions, To complicate things further there have been five different versions of this Greatest Hits album.
The original on vinyl in A CD version from called Greatest Hits and more which again had the original re recorded two tracks and added tracks with diferent running order A new CD version from in the U.
Amazon have put reviews for all editions on this product since it is available from Amazon and other sellers. The edition sold by Amazon not by other sellers or Used is the version with the two re recordings replaced by the original recordings. If you want a good compilation of Donovan hits with plenty on one disc go for the best of donovan sunshine superman compilation with the yellow cover.
If you want just a few hits by Donovan for a cheap price with original hits then this is fine, But if like me you would also like the alternative re recordings from original greatest hits album then go for Greatest hits and more CD from with a picture of Donovan outside a castle. To sum up I would say this was a good compilation that has been messed about with.
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Good to sing along to all my favourites in the carah the memories, yes, some slagged him off as Britains poor version of Dylan but I kind of like Donovan, his little ditties are nice to hum along togood fun and pleasant.
I especially like Catch the Wind, lovely lyrics. This was a gift. Great price. Happy I found it. If you want Donovan that you remember from the 60's, this is it.
