Donovan was one of the leading proponents of the hippie music style of the 1960’s.  His music blended folk, pop, psychedelia, and jazz, along with the hippie lifestyle, into his distinctive sound.  He had a number of hits during the sixties, but is today primarily known for Sunshine Superman, Mellow Yellow, and Atlantis.  He is member of both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.  Here is the Donovan album discography.
