Original Mono Mixes! Complete Original Cover Art! This Vintage Gem Has Never Sounded Better!


They Call Him Mellow Yellow!

No artist embodied the '60s spirit of creative freedom more strongly than Scottish psychedelic-folk-rock troubadour Donovan. His landmark 1967 classic Mellow Yellow has never sounded better than on this Sundazed LP edition, which features original cover art, high-quality vinyl and the vibrant original mono mix!


In the revolutionary musical atmosphere of the second half of the 1960s, no artist embodied the era's spirit of creative freedom and freewheeling self-invention more strongly than Donovan. Born Donovan Philips Leitch, the multitalented Scottish troubadour rose from the U.K. folk scene and was initially hailed as Britain's answer to Bob Dylan. But he quickly transcended his original folkie image to adopt a more distinctive and expansive vision that put him in the vanguard of the psychedelic/flower-power explosion, while also exploring his interest in blues, jazz and Eastern music. Embracing an optimistic sensibility that exemplified the era's most idealistic hopes and dreams, Donovan was one of the few '60s artists who managed to make consistently inventive and popular albums while also scoring regularly on the singles charts, and his unique body of work remains as compelling today as when it was first created. Now, Sundazed presents Donovan's classic '60s album in its original LP configuration, featuring high-quality vinyl, definitive mono mixes and complete original cover art.

Donovan's fourth album, 1967's Mellow Yellow, is a dynamic transitional effort that finds the singer-songwriter-guitarist expanding his artistry into rewarding new areas. In addition to the sing-along title hit, which famously inspired a persistent urban legend regarding the recreational consumption of banana peels, Mellow Yellow encompasses acoustic introspection ("Writer in the Sun"), crafty art-pop ("Museum"), bittersweet insight ("Young Girl Blues"), beat poetry ("The Observation") and a fond nod to British folk icon Bert Jansch ("House of Jansch"). In addition to the production of British Invasion legend Mickie Most, Mellow Yellow features ear-catching arrangements by future Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones and sitar by cult singer-songwriter Shawn Phillips. With its original mono mix capturing the vibrant vibes of Donovan during this incredibly creative and productive period, this vintage gem has never sounded better!

"Mellow Yellow is actually more diverse in its sounds than Sunshine Superman, drawing on some of the same era's better follow-up material but also reaching back somewhat further for repertory. It was, as one could rightly guess, a by-product of the late-1966 hit title track, but the songs dated back in some instances as much as a year, to a point prior to Donovan's having made the leap from folk to pop artist." - Bruce Eder, allmusic.com

"With an arrangement more suited to a woozy Salvation Army band than a rock group, the giddily psychedelic non sequiturs of 'Mellow Yellow' wormed their way just shy of the Number One spot. Backup vocals were contributed by Paul McCartney, who had used a phrase by Donovan in 'Yellow Submarine.'" - Rolling Stone
