Donovan has always been a greatest hits artist to me. I've tried a few of his albums and they never grabbed me for some reason.

I do love this song though.
Donovan - Wear your love like heaven.

It is a great song Todd. It reminds me of a very peaceful few days a had a couple of years ago, staying at my late brother-in-law's beautiful house in the woods. It was just me, my German Shepherd and a lot of music. I heard this song for the first time in years and it stood out for me.

I agree that 'Don' is an artist I listen to most for the 45s, but check out a song called 'Teas' which could easily have fitted in between the likes of 'Blackbird', 'Juila' or 'I Will' on the White Album. It's brilliant.

I did buy a few of his original albums. Hurdy Gurdy Man, A Gift from a Flower to a Garden. The production on a lot never appealed. A Gift was a double album with one side for adults and one for kids. I always preferred the kids album. It was nice simple folk.

Sometimes his live versions were more appealing than the studio too. Celeste sounded mannered and stilted in its original form. But a live version I heard from a late 60s concert was lovely.
