Some saw Donovan as Britain’s answer to Bob Dylan, but whatever he was he was terrific, and he took “Sunshine Superman” to #1 on the U.S. charts in August of 1966. Born Donovan Philips Leitch in Glasgow, Scotland, he developed polio as a child which left him with a limp. Donovan was profoundly influenced by the folk music he heard as a child and began writing and playing his own music in his teens. “Sunshine Superman” was his “introduction” to American audiences with a brilliant recording production by Mickie Most.
