Description
Donovan's Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album from Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan and was a major seller, reaching #4 in the US. It is a distinct entry in Donovan's discography for several reasons. First, it collects three singles that were previously unreleased on any album ("Epistle to Dippy", "There Is a Mountain", "Laleña"). It also presents the unedited "Sunshine Superman" (one minute, fifteen seconds longer than the original 1966 single and album release), and most of the songs appear for the first time in stereo. Lastly, Donovan's Greatest Hits contains re-recordings of "Catch the Wind" and "Colours". Epic Records could not obtain the right to release the original recordings of these two songs, so Donovan rerecorded them in May of 1968 with a full backing band and Mickie Most's lavish production.
