Donovan –  Barabajagal – New LP

Regular price $ 28.00 $ 0.00

Transitional album, both connected with the previous sets and also a departure.  Essential listen for fans, and likely much more influential than many might realize, its influence likely showing up many places in every decade that followed.  -- winch 

In addition to being one of Donovan’'s edgiest and most ambitious releases, 1968's Barabajagal was the most commercially successful album of his career, reaching #4 in the U.S. and remaining on the Billboard album chart for more than a year. With instrumental backup by the Jeff Beck Group (including Rod Stewart and Ron Wood) on several tracks, as well as an all-star cast that includes Madeline Bell, Aynsley Dunbar, Lesley Duncan, Nicky Hopkins, John Paul Jones, Graham Nash and legendary British session guitarist Big Jim Sullivan, Barabajagal features an imaginative array of sounds that showcase some of Donovan's most adventurous compositions. Also on board is Paul McCartney, who contributes vocals and percussion on the album's biggest hit, the epic "Atlantis," which appears here alongside such Donovan favorites as "Barabajagal (Love Is Hot)," "Superlungs (My Supergirl)," "To Susan On the West Coast Waiting," "Trudi" and the effervescent "Happiness Runs." They all sound magnificent in Barabajagal's original true stereo mix, and this Aquarian age classic has never sounded better than in this definitive LP edition. On pristine QRP pressed vinyl!

Barabajagal is the seventh studio album and eighth album overall from Donovan. It was released in the United States on 11 August 1969, but was not released in the United Kingdom because of a continuing contractual dispute. Despite the slow start, the LP broke through after the release of the hit single "Atlantis." The LP had Donovan at his full strength as singer-songwriter and genre-master of folk, pop, hard rock, psychedelia, and novelty. It also marked the end of a successful relationship with producer Mickie Most, whose punchy production was bundled with the hiring of A-list musicians to back Donovan. The sessions included The Jeff Beck Group, John Paul Jones, Aynsley Dunbar, Gabriel Mekler (Steppenwolf), Graham Nash, Danny Thompson, and other notables. After this project, Donovan faded from the pop charts and went "indie" with self-produced projects that yielded interesting results but mixed reception.
