Ten essential albums of the 1960s
7. Donovan - Fairytale
Beginning as just another Bob Dylan sycophant, Scottish singer/songwriter Donovan took the simplistic whimsy and humor of early Dylan and added a bit of instrumental sophistication. Songs like "To Try for the Sun" and "Colours" emit the warmth and romanticism of mid-'60s bohemia, while "Sunny Goodge Street," with its druggy lyrics and Coltrane-like jazz flavor, points the way toward London hippies doubling down on a lifestyle of indulgence.
