Donovan (born Donovan Philips Leitch (born 10 May 1946) is a Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist. Emerging from the British folk scene, he developed an eclectic and distinctive style that blended folk, jazz, pop, psychedelia, and world music. He currently lives with his family in County Cork in Ireland.

Donovan came to fame in the United Kingdom in early 1965 with a series of live performances on the pop TV series, Ready Steady Go!, and his popularity spread to the US and other countries. After signing with the British label Pye Records in 1965, he recorded a handful of singles and two albums in the folk music vein. After extricating himself from his original management contract, he began a long and successful collaboration with leading independent record producer Mickie Most, scoring a string of hits in the UK, the US, Australia and other countries. His successful records in the 1960s included the UK hits "Catch the Wind" and "Colours" in 1965, while "Sunshine Superman" topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart the following year, and reached number two in Britain. Donovan was the first artist to be signed to CBS/Epic Records by then-new Administrative Vice President Clive Davis, who later became head of the CBS Record empire.

Donovan was one of the leading British recording artists of his day. He produced a series of hit albums and singles between 1965 and 1970.He became a friend of leading pop musicians including Joan Baez, Brian Jones, Bruce Springsteen, and The Beatles. He influenced both John Lennon and Paul McCartney when he taught them his finger-picking guitar style in 1968.Donovan's commercial fortunes waned after he parted ways with Mickie Most in 1969, and he left the music industry for a time.

He continued to perform and record sporadically in the 1970s and 1980s, but gradually fell from favour. His gentle musical style and hippie image was scorned by critics, especially after the advent of punk rock. Donovan withdrew from performing and recording several times during his career, but he underwent a revival in the 1990s with the emergence of the rave scene in Britain. Late in the decade, he recorded the 1996 album Sutras with producer and long-time fan Rick Rubin and in 2004 released a new album, Beat Cafe. On 28 September 2010, Donovan was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011.

P.s Το Hurdy Gurdy Man ο Donovan είχε αρχίσει να το γράφει σε περίοδο διακοπών στην Jamaica και το ολοκλήρωσε στην Ινδια.Το Hurdy Gurdy είναι ένα μουσικό όργανο του 18ου αιώνα.

Το κομμάτι αρχικά το είχε γράψει για να το παίξει φίλος του Jimmy Hendrix. Εκείνος όμως έλειπε σε περιοδεία.Ο παραγωγός του Donovan ( ο θρυλικός Mike Most) έπεισε τελικά τον Donovan να το ερμηνεύσει ο ίδιος.

Γενικά ο Donovan έχει αρκετά μπερδεμένη δισκογραφία.Χρησιμοποιούσε session Μουσικούς αν και ο ίδιος δεν ήθελε.Για το Hurdy Gurdy Man ποιοι τον βοήθησαν στην ηχογράφηση ποτέ δεν έγινε γνωστό.Οι φήμες λένε ότι εν αγνοία του προσελήφθησαν ο Allan Holdsworth και ο Jimi Page.Στο μπάσο κατά πάσα πιθανότητα να παίζει ο John Paul Jones και στα τύμπανα ίσως ο John Bonham . Αν είναι έτσι τότε σε αυτό το κομμάτι έχουμε την πρώτη συνεργασία και ομαδοποίηση των - αργότερα – Led Zeppelin.

Ποιος ξέρει …..

P.ss Στο Greatest Hits περιέχει το Sunshine Superman το οποίο διαρκεί 4:30’’ . Μεγαλύτερο σε διάρκεια από την πρώτη εκτέλεση στο 45 Sunshine Superman / The Trip 1966 (Epic) καθώς επίσης έχει και διαφορετική εισαγωγή.

P.sss Η φωτογραφία του εξώφυλλου είναι τραβηγμένη από τον φίλο του Απόστολο Δοξιάδη καθώς και κάποιες από το ένθετο που περιέχει ο δίσκος.Οχι οι κατώ.

Taste :

Donovan - Hurdy Gurdy Man (Έχει αποσπάσματα από της διακοπές του το 1966 στην Ίο.)
