Donovan’s complete presentation of his 1966 Sunshine Superman was always going to be something special – the fact that it prompted Jimmy Page to make his first appearance on a UK stage for three years, elevated it into the realms of unforgettable.
A year in planning, this innovative artist stepped onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall to present his master work which is now recognized as a most important and innovative album, which influenced his young pals The Beatles, David Gilmour and so many others. The amazing Bonus Second Blu-ray is packed with Donovan Hits which flower into full-on orchestral arrangements by the original arranger of Donovan’s most innovative works, John Cameron who conducts The London Contemporary Orchestra, with Daniel Pioro/lead violin, Shawn Phillips/sitar & guitar, Danny Thompson/bass, John Cameron/harpsichord & piano, Jimmy Page/guitar, Astrella Celeste/narration & vocals, Donovan Leitch Jr/vocals.
Donovan’s daughter Astrella Celeste introduces this historic concert and sings with her father, and Donovan’s American son Donovan Leitch Jr joins his father on The Trip.
A very special appearance by Donovan’s wife Linda, his muse, spiritual co-worker and the inspiration for ‘Sunshine Superman’ and the six minute Classical Suite ‘Legend of a Girl-Child Linda’ id a highlight of this incredible celebration of the album which was described at Donovan’s Induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as, ‘DONOVAN SINGLE-HANDEDLY INITIATED THE PSYCHEDELIC REVOLUTION WITH SUNSHINE SUPERMAN’.
