If ever there was an album that should be packaged with a syringe full of insulin, it's HURDY GURDY MAN. However, therein lies the album's considerable charm.
Possibly the most refined examples of Donovan's special brand of imp-like psychedelic pop, these songs, including the hit title track and the superlative "Jennifer Juniper," are as wide-eyed and giggly as Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, minus all the creepiness. Which of course in some ways makes them that much creepier. The lesser-known tracks, like "Get Thy Bearings" and "Entertaining of a Shy Girl," are if anything even more entertainingly wispy and spacey. Good stuff, especially for fans of British psychedelia.
