AUF DEM WEG NACH ATLANTIS: DONOVAN WIRD 75
- May 13, 2021
Whenever a song by Donovan is played in Germany (whether on the radio, at a party, or on a TV show), it's "Altlantis“. With this pathetic hymn, released in 1968, he reached number 2 in the German singles charts, although he was actually a folkie singing to guitar who liked it rather spartan. And while the German public discovered the Scotsman for themselves, in his home country, Great Britain, it was already almost over: His singles had almost all reached the Top 10 there since 1965 - and this Atlantis trip, of all things, only climbed with difficulty to number 23. After that, it was over. In the U.S., where he had a number one with "Sunshine Superman" in 1966, the albums still went quite well until 1976. Donovan is still active today. On May 10, he will be 75 years old!
