DISC 1 -



    1. Thank you BigScott! This is the best anthology of Donovan I've ever seen. Never a heavyweight, but he had something that connected with people.

    2. Hi Scott.
      Sometimes a bit too sweet, but Donovan has made some more experimental stuff (f.e. HMS Donovan)which was an inspiration for psychfolk and weirdfolk. On the whole I like it.
