Mick Softley, a friend of Donovan who persuaded him to record an album ‘Songs for swingin’ survivors’ in 1965. The comeback album ‘Sunrise’ was produced exactly as Mick had wanted and is an absolute masterpiece. This album was more electric and Mick was mainly backed by great musicians such as Gerry Conway , Pat Donaldson and Jerry Donahue. Some great tracks such as ‘Can you hear me now’, ‘Julie Argoyne’ , ‘You go your way and I’ll go mine’ and ‘If you’re not part of the solution, you must be part of the problem’ . But the stand out track has to be the magnificent ‘Time machine’. His voice is so full of emotion and mischief in a gravelly sort of way. This is such a fantastic album, which should have had more commercial success.
The cover is in lovely condition, with just some minor rubbing of the edges. Great sound to the vinyl, with occasional surface noise Side 1 Track 2 ‘Waterfall’ and a few faint clicks on Side 1 Track 7 ‘Ship’. Labels are excellent.
