Song of the Naturalist’s Wife

In general, I don’t care for an overload of ‘natural’ sound effects. Because it’s corny and not at all natural. This one uses bird calls and a baby’s cry, for that double whammy effect. Honestly, the sound of a baby screeching sets my nerves on edge, so I really it when I have to hear that on record. But you know what, I’ll forgive these kind of production mistakes because it’s Donovan and he gets a pass to be corny with it. It’s a lovely song.
