Donovan, Shadows of Blue, and Nashville

by Chris Murray on July 2, 2013

Donovan just released his new album Shadows of Blue. I spent several days with Donovan at the Treasure Isle Recording studios in Nashville while he recorded Shadows of Blue. There was magic in the air at the sessions. Back in 1965 “Catch the Wind” was Donovan’s first song released in the U.S. and was on a Nashville label, Hickory Records. It went to no.3 on the U.S. charts.

Shadows of Blue is a mix of wonderful ballads, rock and roll, and country. Donovan’s dear friend John Sebastian joined him at one of the sessions and contributed some terrific harmonica to Donovan’s song “Harmonica Girl”.
