Description by

Originally labeled as the new young Dylan, Scottish-born troubadour Donovan Leitch merged his Folk and Rock sensibilities to become one of the most popular artists of the late '60s psychedelic era. This two-for-one set brings together two complete albums originally released on Columbia and includes the hits "Mellow Yellow" and "Wear Your Love Like Heaven" plus other gems such as "Sunny South Kensington" and "Skip-A-Long Sam".

This is a peculiar two-fer CD marrying MELLOW YELLOW (a US-only mishmash of singles, outtakes, and old album tracks) with WEAR YOUR LOVE LIKE HEAVEN, originally the first half of an entirely different double-LP called A GIFT FROM A FLOWER TO A GARDEN. (Confused yet?) Taken together like this, these two albums are Donovan at his hippie-era peak, blending fanciful psychedelia like the two title tracks--two of his finest singles ever--and the downright giddy "Oh Gosh" with earthier material like "House of Jansch" (a tribute to the Pentangle's Bert Jansch, a longtime friend), the witty Swinging London tribute "Sunny South Kensington," and the downright bleak "Writer in the Sun." Donovan's albums are notoriously spotty, but these two are his most consistently entertaining, with very few weak songs and some excellent psych-pop arrangements by a pre-Led Zeppelin John Paul Jones.
