Notas editoriales de iTunes

These demos made in the summer of 1964 for Donovan's eventual recording contract are the earliest recordings in his extensive catalog. The 18-year-old can already be heard coming into his own, though his debt to Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan is clear. "Crazy 'Bout a Woman" is a rendition of a Jesse Fuller track (also covered on Bob Dylan's self-titled debut album as "You're No Good"). "Talkin' Pop Star Blues" is a humorous talking folk song in the style of Bob Dylan imitating Woody Guthrie. Scottish folk is represented with a touching interpretation of Ewan MacColl's "Dirty Old Town"; it alone is worth the price of admission. "Isle of Sadness" was reworked as "Belated Forgiveness Plea." "The Darkness of My Night" was retitled "Breezes of Patchulie" and later appeared in a grander arrangement. "Freedom Road" is credited to the poet Langston Hughes and Emerson Harper. "Co'dine" and "London Town" were previously issued on Troubadour: The Definitive Collection 1964-1976. These recordings should interest fans of Donovan's early acoustic music. His beautifully expressive style is already present.

Even by his earliest recordings he was a master

This is then barely past his 18th birthday Donovan in the height of his Dylan-clone period, and frankly this and his first 2 studio albums show their Dylan influence from the first chord...

But who cares really

Donovan had his own voice, a pleasant, calming voice and he was already an exceptional guitar player.

This album is oddly a bit more mature than his official debut.

But while the Dylan (and per Donovan similar influences like Guthrie, Seeger, etc) influence is definitely there Donovan has a more melodic and more impressive musical chops on these recordings (to Dylan's stronger lyrically and far more accomplished songwriting)

In 2 short years then 20 yr old Donovan would find his own style and voice and be a true original, but even in semi clone just on merit of the music alone this is 29 minutes of upper echelon folk brilliance.

Add the historical context and it's even more impressive.

Highly recommended.

It's great

But it's sad that Donovan isn't as well known he has a great pure voice and although not known for it, a great folk singer I recommend this album fairy tale and what bin did what bin hid. - alder

Upon his emergence during the mid-'60s, Donovan was anointed "Britain's answer to Bob Dylan," a facile but largely unfounded comparison which compromised the Scottish folk-pop troubadour's own unique vision. Where the thrust of Dylan's music remains its bleak introspection and bitter realism, Donovan fully embraced the wide-eyed optimism of the flower power movement, his ethereal, ornate songs radiating a mystical beauty and childlike wonder; for better or worse, his recordings remain quintessential...
