To me, Donovan is the essence of teatime music (I believe I’ve already explained the concept.) I also think he made some of the finest psychedelic music, though perhaps I’m unduly swayed by his charming Scottish accent. Grandiosity was a big problem in the psychedelic scene. Donovan doesn’t sound like he’s trying so hard to blow everyone’s minds. He’s just tripped out, in a laid back, not trying to prove anything way.Sometimes modesty can be its own brilliance.
