Donovan's pop tunes are some of the most recognisable on the radio, but lots of fans and listeners aren't as familiar with one of the most original and quirky albums ever released by a major artist.
HMS Donovan was recorded specifically for the younger crowd, a double album full of lyrics by major poets like Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, and W.B. Yeats. Those words were set to Donovan's own music which had a definite Sottish and English folk music bent, resulting in an unforgettable combination of imagination, wistful tunes, fantasy, and sing-alongs.
