Amber-Pearls of Amber

How many crazy Beatles fanatics noticed the sitar on this cover and knew it was given to Donovan by George Harrison? Oh Beatles obsessives, you're too funny. But this isn't some ruse I'm making up just to taunt that select group. It really is Donovan's sitar on loan to his buddy Mac Macleod. And while this album should be known for his involvement, as he was also in psych monsters Hurdy Gurdy, it's probably the damned sitar that most people are interested in. Looking at the cover, you'll know exactly what this will sound like. It's raga folk of the highest order. If you have any interest in acid folk, this one's for you.
