"For this release, Donovan returns to the songs that made him famous. His voice sounds absolutely great here; even better than on some of the original releases in my opinion. All of the studio effects and fills are gone here, and on many songs that works to their advantage. Like Bob Dylan, I think Donovan often gets bogged down in schmaltzy over-production, and so a chance to hear the man by himself, with only an acoustic guitar and a harmonica, is a real treat. (Okay, there is a sax(!) solo at the end of Lalena). Highlights:Hurdy Gurdy Man - Extended here; Donovan tells a masterful story of him, 4 Beatles, 1 Beach Boy, and Mia Farrow in India. Also, he sings a new verse...written by George Harrison!Wear Your Love Like Heaven - Absolutely beautiful. Much better and more delightful than the studio version.Universal Soldier
To Susan On the West Coast Waiting - Donovan performs some very nice renditions of his anti-war material."
A really good live acoustic performance from Donovan

"Found in a second-hand CD store, this is an extremely well made album that contains some nice folk songs. Especially, "Jennifer Juniper", "Atlantis", "Catch the wind" and Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Universal Soldier" are great. We can really consider Donovan the British invasion's answer to the uncatchable Bob Dylan."
The Classics Live repackaged..

"This is a collection of live songs, that was previously released as "The Classics Live". It has less songs than the original. The performances are really good, however, so unless you've already got the previous version, I highly recommend it."
