Donovan – Sunshine Superman (UK) (1967) *New* 24-bit/96kHz Vinyl Rip

The UK issue of this landmark album paired half of the US release with half of the Mellow Yellow album and featured totally different artwork. However it's still a strong album dominated by tracks that mixed Donovan's earlier folk style with acid rock psychedelia. The blend works perfectly on the title track but there are some other gems present here such as the haunting "Celeste", the sitar laden "Three Kingfishers" and of course the dark "Season Of the Witch". One of the essential 1967 releases, (although the US version was issued in 1966 making it one of the earliest psychedelic records!) Freak Emporium.

Due to the contractual dispute between Pye Records and Epic Records, Donovan's releases were held back in the United Kingdom throughout 1966 and early 1967. During this time, Donovan released Sunshine Superman and Mellow Yellow in the United States. To catch up to the Epic Records schedule in America, Pye Records compiled a cross-section of both albums and titled it Sunshine Superman. It was released in the UK (Pye NPL 18181) in June 1967 and reached #25 in the British charts. Wikipedia.
