HURDY GURDY SONGS (Donovan songs) COMP CDACE
The latest in Ace Records' popular 'Songwriters' series is a kaleidoscopic trip into the craft of one of the most covered and influential artists of the '60s. 'Hurdy Gurdy Song' has become one of the most critically and commercially successful song of the era, and continues to attract new listeners and demand reappraisal; a proof that Donovan - the psychedelic minstrel whose records coloured the late '60s pop landscape - was one of a kind.
