is the budget option for those who've concluded that two discs of Donovan is a disc too many and zero is one too few. Troubadour
, Sony's 1992 Donovan box set, boasts nearly three times the tracks this 15-song single-disc retrospective offers, but Greatest Hits
delivers what it promises: "Colours" and "Catch the Wind" from his folkie phase and "Mellow Yellow," "Sunshine Superman," and "Wear Your Love Like Heaven" from the lad's best-pal-a-flower-ever-had period. Also included are plenty more catchy folk-rock hits cut between 1964 and 1970 as well as four bonus tracks, including the delightfully earnest "Atlantis" and "Barabajagal," with the celebrated first-edition Jeff Beck Group
providing backing. Donovan's blissed-out liner notes ("Whatever you think this song is about, it probably is") round out the package quite quaintly. --Steven Stolder
Don's 1969 bestseller is now revamped to give you the original versions of Catch the Wind and Colours , while adding later hits like Atlantis and Barabajagal (Love Is Hot) to the original tracklisting that features such classics as Mellow Yellow; Sunshine Superman; There Is a Mountain; Season of the Witch; Jennifer Juniper , and Hurdy Gurdy Man .
