donovan wrote and recorded much of >the hurdy gurdy man< in late 1967 not long after recording the songs that would form >a gift from a flower to a garden<. the rest of >the hurdy gurdy man< was recorded in april 1968, after donovan visited rishikesh, india to study under maharishi mahesh yogi.
donovans songwriting for >the hurdy gurdy man< centered around eerie, trance-like drones on songs as >peregrine<, >the river song< and >tangier< and pop music on most of the other tracks. the songs feature inventive accompaniment, combined with donovans usual spot-on delivery! its amazing what this guy can create with such spare accompaniment.
