Sunshine Superman by Donovan
Released: Jan 1966
Label: Epic
"Sunshine Superman" -- both the song and the album -- marked a turning point for Donovan Leitch. With his third album, released in 1966, the previously strummy Anglo folkster tripped into the psychedelic underground and discovered jazzy arrangements, electric guitar, and global instrumentation, especially the exoticizing effects of copious sitar. The title track is a damnably hummable psych-pop masterpiece, and "Season of the Witch" is an oft-covered classic, but don't overlook the lovely, lazy "Bert's Blues" and Summer of Love postcard prequel "The Trip."
