Released to tie in with his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inauguration, this compilation overlaps quite a bit with the early-‘90s double CD Troubadour. Both include the necessary hits, but the new collection has more peak-era album tracks and a couple live rarities; and largely stays out of the ‘70s. Either set will prove that there was more to Donovan than the hippie-trippy image generated by his singles. Recommended deep track: ” Young Girl Blues,” which can match any of your favorite Nick Drake songs for gorgeous melancholy.
