The Donovan Concert: Live In L.A.


Listening to folk-rock poet and singer-songwriter Donovan is a little like experiencing Transcendental Meditation (TM). Mystical, sublime and cosmically refreshing, TM has been a root cause of Donovan since the days of ‘68 when he and The Beatles spent time in India with the late Maharishi Yogi. Celebrating 40+ years of classic music, Donovan brought his music alive in L.A. on January 21, 2007 and the results can be seen and heard on his first live DVD, The Donovan Concert: Live In L.A. Released stateside on the MVD Visual imprint, the DVD features Don backed up by light percussion from Stewart Lawrence and slap bass from Tom Mansi. The DVD features low-key acoustic guitar-based covers of classic Donovan music—from 1964’s “Catch The Wind” to “Happiness Runs”—all from the ‘60s, although there are several bonus cuts including a new track here called “Illusion” from Don’s planned “Ritual Groove” album. Don’s daughter, Astrella Celeste appears here along with a brief cameo from an old TM ally, Mike Love. Benefitting the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-based Education and World Peace, The Donovan Concert: Live In L.A. captures a magical night by one of the legendary music makers of the ‘60s. /
