One of the most prominent and innovative folk artists of the 1960s, Donovan quickly developed an eclectic and distinctivestyle that blended folk, jazz, pop, and psychedelia. With the releases of albums like Sunshine Superman (1966) and A GiftFrom A Flower To A Garden (1967), completed the transition from beat poet folkster to hippie troubadour and are nowconsidered as innovative breakthroughs in the growing psychedelic pop sound. Hurdy Gurdy Man (1968) continued to pushthe limits of psychedelia by fully embracing the spiritual optimism of the krishna consciousness movement. His musictransformed into ethereal songs that begun to focus on radiating a sense of mystical wonder. After splitting with producerMickie Most following the recording sessions for his album Barabajagal, his career struggled though the 1970s, but he hasregained popularity with re. issues of his old songs in the 1990s. His music is now viewed as quintessential artifacts of thepsychedelic era, capturing the 'peace and love' idealism of their time to perfection. He was inducted into the Rock and RollHall of Fame in 2012. « hide
