A combined U.S. and U.K. discography with albums, singles and EP listings. Also includes special foreign releases. Lists the various greatest hits releases that I know of. Any albums including previously unreleased material appear in the first part of the discography as I regard them to be part of the official canon. I am slowly updating this to be in more detail.
A list of known Donovan bootlegs and rarities, whether the songs are presently unavailable on CD, have only been released as a B-side, weird foreign releases, etc.
A rough draft of a sessiongraphy detailing Donovan's extraordinary time in the studio. Now updated to include live engagements, random jams, TV and film appearances. Slowly the material from the TV/Film page will be slotted into here because I thought there's no point in repeating myself, is there?
A draft listing of every Donovan song. Like the Beatles' and Beach Boys' recordings, some of Donovan's tunes had some variation in the versions released. Also here are details of how they differ and where to find them.
A guide to what's available on CD/TC in the U.K. with catalogue numbers and prices to help you track down your own Donovan. Should be useful for the rest of the world too.
Songs where Donovan plays instruments or sings as a guest on somebody else's recording, cover versions of Donovan songs and references to Donovan that can be found in various tunes.
Update December 1997. I have had to take off the lyrics because of an e-mail from the publisher of the songs, Donovan Music.
A complete guide to Donovan's poetry, where to find it, and a few examples of his work in this area.
Everything else that Donovan created on paper that wasn't a poem: biographies, doodles, little drawings, some prose, etc.
Donovan made lots of appearances on television and also starred (and had smaller parts) in movies too. This is a list of shows I know of, and where you can obtain them.
Literature published about Donovan: his book of poetry, songbook, magazines, general books, etc.
Clippings and newspaper articles collected about Donovan, arranged in publication order so you can see the news as it happened. Some are simple reports, some are interviews with Donovan, others are just reviews.
This page has a lot of CD liner notes. Of particular interest are little histories of Donovan and an interview conducted with him for the CD re-release of A Gift from a Flower to a Garden.
Liner notes from Donovan's album, etc.
Reviews written by fans attending Donovan's shows and analysis of his album work. If you have seen Donovan live or met him, or fancy yourself as a rock critic, please send me a little (or big) piece and I'll put it here.
Essential information about the three Donovan fan clubs that I know of.

Some by Donovan, some about him.
Pictures of Donovan. Quite dodgy at the moment.

Do you want to be on a Donovan e-mail news list? If anything happens in the world of Donovan, I'll send out details to all members. Interested? Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
I can't do everything by myself. Do you want to help with this project? Maybe you want to drop me a line to suggest improvements that could be made to the pages. Or correct a mistake you may have seen. Perhaps ask me something about Donovan. I'll try to answer any questions but bear in mind that I am learning about Donovan too.
