In Concert

  (Item #: donovincon_1709_1904-) 

Our Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $69.00 (You save $30.99 / 31%)


  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout
  • A shockingly well recorded live set, so REAL and natural, with some of Donovan's best songs played with real feeling
  • This early Epic stereo pressing is the only way to hear the MIDRANGE MAGIC that’s missing from modern records
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The only album that comes close to having the flow of this concert was the studio recording of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks ... One of the great live albums of the '60s."

Super Hot Stamper

Donovan
The Real Donovan

  (Item #: donovreald_1710_1902) 

Our Price: $69.99

  • With a superbly balanced nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side two and nearly Double Plus (A+ to A++) side one, this is a great way to hear these songs from '65 & '66
  • If more mono records sounded as big and open as this one we would totally be on board with the current movement towards One Channel
  • The Real Donovan is a compilation of singles, along with some tracks sourced from the first two albums, and an EP, as well as a couple of b-sides
  • Catch the Wind and Colours are two of the better known songs here, but really, all these folk songs are well written and performed with real feeling

Donovan - A Gift From a Flower To a Garden

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: donovagift_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Side one of this two record box set has Wear Your Love Like Heaven in Super Hot stamper sound, with some of the most natural vocal reproduction we heard in our entire shootout. Many copies had "hyped-up" phony sound -- fine for the old consoles and radios of the day (1967) but not too enjoyable on the modern, much more revealing rigs we use today. The tonality of the midrange -- where the guitars and vocals are found of course -- must be correct for this music to work. This copy does a very respectable job on three of the sides, and that's not easy to do.

Donovan - Catch The Wind

Superb in Mono

  (Item #: donovcatch_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The sound when summed to mono is natural, with a correct top end. This is some of the best of the early, folky Donovan from 1965.

We were less than impressed with the sound of this electronically reprocessed album in stereo, but were very pleasantly surprised when we hit the mono button on our EAR phono stage. The weird, phasey top end disappeared almost completely on side two, and Donovan's voice and guitar sounded pretty darn right to us by the second track (the first track on side two is a mess).

Donovan - Sunshine Superman

Painting with Too Broad a Brush

  (Item #: donovsunsh_wrong) 



Back in 2009 we wrote: "Donovan’s albums are never well recorded so if you’re looking for audiophile sound this is not the record for you. Although the sound varies here from track to track, some tracks do sound quite nice."

Although we have yet to play a copy of this particular album that sounds any good to us, we couldn't have been more Wrong about the rest of his catalog. Since 2009 we have certainly found any number of superb sounding Donovan records, the best of which to date is The Hurdy Gurdy Man, surely the man's masterpiece. You can read about some of them in the link below.

Donovan - The Hurdy Gurdy Man

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: donovhurdy_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The 1968 sound here is GLORIOUS — rich, sweet, Tubey Magical and very, very Analog.

Side one is where you will find The Hurdy Gurdy Man and it is crazy good sounding here. No wonder: Hurdy Gurdy was engineered by Eddie Kramer and produced by none other than John Paul Jones.

Donovan - The Real Donovan in Mono

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: donovreald_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Now here's a mono record we can get behind! If more mono records sounded big and open the way this one does we would totally be on board with the current movement towards One Channel. (As that has not been our experience we remain skeptical.)

This is by far the best sounding, quietest pressing we have ever played. It boasts Super Hot Stamper sound on side one, backed with even better than Super Hot Stamper sound (A++ to A+++) on side two, and it's pressed on exceptionally quiet vinyl (for Hickory anyway).

The Donovan You Don't Know

In Concert

  (Item #: donovincon_2015) 



A distinguished member of our Rock and Pop Hall of Fame and a Forgotten Classic from 1968.

We discovered a while back just what an excellent recording this can be and now we know how magical the best copies can be. Only the very best copies delivered the kind of natural, immediate sound we were looking for.
