Donovan - "The Donovan Concert Live In L.A." DVD

Unapologetically a product of the hippie-dippie 60's, folk minstrel Donovan spearheaded a lysergically-friendly pop sound with whimsical, childlike sing-a-long appeal. Here, introduced by none other than surrealist filmmaker David Lynch and featuring guest appearances from folks like (Beach Boy) Mike Love and Donovan's own lovely daughter Astrella Celeste, Donovan recreates his classics like 'Hurdy Gurdy Man', 'Season Of The Witch', the superb 'Colours', and, of course, his trademark 'Mellow Yellow'. All of this recorded live in front of a rather huge large audience in L.A. in 2007 to benefit the 'David Lynch Foundation For Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace'. Hmm. Anyway, this is a fun listen and a well-done recording. (MVD Visual)
