Congratulations Donovan

In my November 2, 2008 entry I reported on the DVD on the musical career of Donovan (Leitch). I was pleased to learn today that he was made an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government. This is a very prestigious honor. Oldies listeners know Donovan for his big hits such as:

  • Mellow Yellow

  • Sunshine Superman

  • Atlantis

  • Hurdy Gurdy Man

However he has recorded many albums in the Folk/Folk Rock genre.

My hearty congratulations
