REVIEWS

***
wie ein Rauschzustand, übel, übel..der Titletrack allerdings ist auch heute noch klasse.
*****
Sorry, aber das mit dem Rauschzustand kann ich beim besten Willen nicht nachvollziehen. So hat z.B. das Vorgängeralbum 'Sunshine Superman' wesentlich mehr psychedelische Momente als diese Scheibe. Aber auch jenes ist noch relativ harmlos. Da gibt es in den Endsechziger und Anfangsiebziger Jahren noch viel krassere Beispiele psychedelischer Musik, wo der Begriff Rauschzustand viel passender ist.
Dies ist Donovan's viertes Album und ist in England, wie auch bereits das Vorgängeralbum, aufgrund von Vertragsschwierigkeiten überhaupt nicht veröffentlicht worden. Erst einige Zeit später erschien dort dann eine Kompilation aus beiden Alben.
Aufgrund seinen ersten beiden sehr folkigen Alben wurde er ja als britische Antwort auf Bob Dylan gehandelt. Aber bereits mit seiner dritten LP 'Sunshine Superman' ging er neue Wege, sicher beeinflußt von Bands wie den Beatles oder den Byrds. 'Mellow Yellow' ist noch vielseitiger ausgefallen, auch wenn es in meiner Gunst etwas hinter 'Sunshine Superman liegt'. Die Bandbreite reicht vom eingängigen Hippy-Sunshine Pop des Titelsongs, über 60s Beat ('Museum', 'Sunny South Kensington') bis zu jazzig/swingendem Arrangement etwa bei 'The Observation' und 'Bleak City Woman'.
Neben dem charismatischen 'Mellow Yellow' gefällt mir aber am besten das bezaubernd-nachdenkliche 'Young Girl Blues' und das ebenfalls ruhige, aber mit schön-schrägem Orchesterarrangement verzuckerte 'Hampstead Incident' am besten.
Das Album erreichte 1967 #14 in den USA.
Meine Bewertung aufgerundete 4,5*.
