Another great artist from the 60’s/70’s would be Donovan Philips Leitch better known as simply Donovan. He was born in Glasgow in 1946. Started as a folk artist in style of Bob Dylan changing into psychedelic flower power. Together with Mickie Most he made the best albums of his career. In 1966 he recorded “Sunshine Superman”. His first one experimenting with psychedelic sounds and his breakthrough in the USA. Of course it includes the title track which became a worldwide hit as well as “The Trip”. The original album released in the US included 10 songs. The english release differed from the original and dropped 3 songs to be replaced by 5 songs from the next album “Yellow Mellow” to make things complicated. His songs are romantic, sometimes medieval (like in “Three Kingfishers” and “Guinevere”), good melodies, with simple and minimal approach (guitar, sitars and harpsichord). The album ends with probably his best ballad titled “Celest”.
