EDITORS’ NOTES

Sunshine Superman marks the opening of Donovan’s psychedelic period—and, boy, did he come out with his kaleidoscopes a-twirling. The anchors are the title cut, one of the era’s most imaginative high-key pop anthems, and “Season of the Witch,” a minimalist bluesy workout featuring a young Jimmy Page’s distinctively droning fretwork. The medieval-sounding “Guinevere” and “Legend of a Girl Child Linda” reflect Donovan’s charming knack for Arthurian whimsy over sonic wizard Mickie Most’s rich, ageless production. This superman soars.

Don't forget Jimmy Page played session guitar on this album. Now that you know, you'll be able to hear his work in the tracks. You're welcome.
