Album Review

This album, which was Donovan's 17th studio project, was originally released as Lady of the Stars in 1984. It included re-recordings of two of his 1960s classics, "Sunshine Superman" and "Season of the Witch," neither of which came close to improving on the original versions.

Lady of the Stars has been reissued countless times by several labels under an assortment of titles, including Till I See You Again, Gold, Golden Hits, Golden Tracks, Forever Gold, Sunshine Superman (not to be confused with Donovan's fine 1966 release of the same title), and Sunshine Troubador.
