I dont know about you but Donovan's position as 'the poor man's Dylan' really underestimates one of the best folk singers of the 60's and 70's.
'Season of the Witch', is probably my favourite song of that era, remade brilliantly by the way on the Bloomfield/Stills jam album 'Super Sessions' and by Brian Auger
There is also 'Catch the Wind', 'Universal Soldier', 'Wear Your Love Like Heaven' and so many other great folk songs
A 2DVD box set is due for release in September 2008, providing the life story of Donovan. It's got some pretty impressive material.
It's got classic 60s film, rare archive footage plus five previously unreleased songs.
There are also star appearances feature Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Micky Most, Rick Rubin, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck.
The DVD set comes complete with a 40 page booklet with informative liner notes and is packed full of exclusive photos and bonus features.
