Scottish troubadour Donovan Leitch "aka Donovan" may have started out as a Bob Dylan copyist, but in 1966 he turned the pop world on its head by breaking from the folk scene and taking the psychedelic plunge under the wing of producer Mickie Most. With Most, he crafted a string of magnificently trippy, brain-basting albums that drip with exotic sitar and fuzzed-out lines by session players like Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jeff Beck.But for every Top 40 smash ("Sunshine Superman," "Mellow Yellow") that the wispy Glaswegian racked up, each of his LPs also contains a host of deeper cuts, hypnotic underground head hits like "Season of the Witch" and "There Is a Mountain." For all his trademark fairytale whimsy, Donovan was no mere lightweight kiddie act.
