I find the music of Donovan to be a spiritual experience. He creates a peaceful and romantic feel inside the music of our heart that is beyond words.
When I began dating my wife Rosemary in February of 1969, I discovered that Donovan was an artist we both collected. Donovan’s music brings back the memories of when we first fell in love and that’s a wonderful feeling to revisit via his music.
We happily shared Donovan vinyl recordings with each other. Rosemary had the better Donovan collection. I would leave her house often in those days with The Real Donovan or Hurdy Gurdy Man tucked under my arm 🙂
I recall one of the first gifts I gave Rosemary was Donovan’s Barabajagal LP. Our favorite song from that album was “I Love My Shirt”.
