 Sunshine Superman (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "Sunshine Superman" single was released in the United States through Epic Records (Epic 5-10045) in July 1966, but due to a contractual dispute the United Kingdom release was delayed until December 1966, where it appeared on Donovan's previous label, Pye Records (Pye 7N 17241).
The "Sunshine Superman" single was backed with "The Trip" on both the United States and United Kingdom releases.
"Sunshine Superman" reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and subsequently became the title track of Donovan's third album, Sunshine Superman.

Sunshine Superman marked the coming of psychedelia and utilised the production skills of already established producer, Mickie Most, whose bass heavy style complements Donovan's enigmatic lyrics and their beatnik delivery brilliantly.
Sunshine Superman includes three of Donovan's greatest hits -- the title track, Season of the Witch, and the Trip -- all great rock songs, but, for me, what makes this record shine is the other album tracks.
With "Superman" Donovan burst onto the scene as a rock and roll force to be reckoned with, a power matched by only the Beatles, Stones and, of course, Bob Dylan.

For example, Superman never killed criminals, he just picked up their entire evil villain ship, and transported it in its entirety to the nearest federal penitentiary.

 The Trades - Various Artists, "Sound of Superman"
Among the new songs, perhaps the one that most captures the nuances of the plot of the upcoming movie is "The Rescue", a melancholy song from American Hi-Fi.
In fact, the only less-than-stellar songs on Sound of Superman are Maxeen's "Save Me" (not a cover of the song of the same name by Remy Zero that serves as the theme for Smallville) and "It's So Easy" by the Plain White T's, both of which are overshadowed by the other songs on the album.
Of course, any fans of Superman who have already compiled home-made mixes dedicated to the hero (like yours truly) can probably name a dozen or more different covers that the album doesn't contain that maybe should have been included.

 Donovan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
His original compositions elicited the attention of music and literary circles, and many of his songs ranked among the favorites of that era's youth culture (his well-known rendition of Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Universal Soldier" was a symbol of the protest and antiwar movements).
Although his music, from "Catch the Wind" to "Sunshine Superman," "Hurdy Gurdy Man," "Mellow Yellow" (a Jay Award recipient of 1967), "Josie," and "Colors," may never have exceeded the sales of contemporary sensations, Donovan offered a spirit of warmth and humanity to his audiences throughout the world.
Donovan Leitch was born on February 10, 1946, in Glasgow, Scotland, to a working-class family.

 Donovan - Sunshine Superman
Paced by the title track, one of Donovan's best singles, 1966's Sunshine Superman heralded the coming psychedelic age with a new world/old world bent: several ambitious psychedelic productions and a raft of wistful folk songs.
The two side-openers, "Sunshine Superman" and "Season of the Witch," are easily the highlights of the album; the first is the quintessential bright summer sing-along, the second a chugging eve-of-destruction tale.
The rest of Sunshine Superman is filled with lengthy, abstract, repetitive folk jams, perfect for lazy summer afternoons, but more problematic when close attention is paid.

This was unfortunate for Donovan, because this would have been considered much more innovative if it was released on schedule.

It included re-recordings of two of his 1960s classics, "Sunshine Superman" and "Season of the Witch," neither of which came close to improving on the original versions.
Most of what is here is forgettable, save for the competent title track, "Lady of the Stars," which has a little bit of the old Donovan magic, and a re-recording of the odd "Local Boy Chops Wood," reportedly written for former Rolling Stone Brian Jones, the original version of which had appeared on 1977's Donovan.
Lady of the Stars has been reissued countless times by several labels under an assortment of titles, including Till I See You Again, Gold, Golden Hits, Golden Tracks, Forever Gold, Sunshine Superman (not to be confused with Donovan's fine 1966 release of the same title), and Sunshine Troubador.

Anyway this album was not for me I prefer the none compilation albums, such as: 'Summer Day Reflection Songs', 'Sunshine Superman', and 'Mellow Yellow'.
He also had his share of hits in America although he was less consistent - fewer top ten hits but his biggest hit (Sunshine superman) did better in America than Britain, peaking at one and two respectively.
Like a lot of people, I've liked the few hits that everyone knows 'Sunshine Superman', 'Hurdy Gurdy man', but have never known what was worth buying.

DONOVAN SUNSHINE SUPERMAN Sundazed 180G LP Few records could inspire Devendra Banhart, Led Zeppelin and Happy Mondays, but Donovan`s 1967 album of mystic pop-psychedelia did exactly that and more.
A fabulous aligning of producer Mickie Most`s chart ears, John Cameron`s arranging and a talent in full flow, it mixes acoustic poetics and such sublime electric hits as the title track and Season Of The Witch, everywhere enlivened by folk, jazz, sitars and bongo mess-arounds.
However, that meant that UK fans lost three songs from the US original: Ferris Wheel, The Trip (which was later released as the B-side to the Sunshine Superman single) and the studio version of The Fat Angel.

His brand of folk-rock was ornate and playful and, as produced by Britpop master Mickie Most, utterly beguiling.
His Sunshine Superman album is one for the time capsule, capturing the beatific ("The Trip") and ominous ("Season Of The Witch") moods of the mid-'60s.
