Donovan Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Barabajagal was Donovan’s 7th album. It finds the Scottish folk/pop singer/songwriter in a rockier than usual frame of mind. The title track featured Jeff Beck on guitar and laid down a bluesy/psych-rock groove, with Superlungs (My Supergirl) and the exploratory psychedelia of Atlantis providing some of Donovan’s best moments. The album was produced by Mickie Most and was originally released in 1969. Reissue LP on The State51 Conspiracy.

“I’m-a just-a mad-a ‘bout-a Saffron / She’s just mad about me / They call me Mellow Yellow (quite rightly!)” mutters genre-blending, kindly and highly relaxed Scot Donovan Phillips Leitch on trademark song ‘Mellow Yellow’. And here it is again, as a beautifully faithful Abbey Road reproduction of the original 1967 release.
Sunshine Superman by Donovan was originally released in 1967 - it should have been the year before but some red tape nonsense meant it was delayed. It was his third album and saw the man sometimes known as The Scottish Dylan, begin to move away from his folk roots. This is evidenced by the psych-tinged title track and the wonderful Season Of The Witch. Reissue LP on The State51 Conspiracy. Limited to 300 copies, cut at Abbey Road.
