Donovan - A Gift From A Flower To A Garden (EPIC - 1967)

I'm not that much into 70's folk and pop (I leave that to my folks and their friends in fact). But when I played this record it just went... whaouh! This music is so good... and sounds like a good Beck album but made in 1967. What really surprised me is that Donovan has more a reputation for churning out hits than breaking the mould of flower power pop with a vision and a sound that will pass the test of time. Despite its Middle Age inspiration that can be scary at first glance, A Gift From A Flower To A Garden benefits plainly of a well crafted and rich instrumentation that goes beyond the traditionnal borders (a few songs have a strong jazzy feeling) and will bring peace and happiness even within the most hardcore heads.

This is one of my favorite albums from the time, the songs bring back so many happy memories for me and I still have the original boxed set.
