Default Try For The Sun

Get this.

Donovan's original version is on his "Fairy Tale" album.

Produced by:

Ken Caillat.

Don't believe me? Check it out:

Default He produced, what, the CD?

I'm kind of puzzled. The original album came out in 1965, and Ken's not THAT old, is he? Did he perhaps remaster it for CD or something? He's not listed on AllMusicGuide - oddly enough, two guys that are - Geoff Strephens and Peter Eden - aren't.

Confusing!

I would assume he produced the digital remastering process of the original tapes for the CD.

But, I just found it interesting that he was involved...any guesses as to how Lindsey got his hands on the tune?? (not that Lindsey wouldn't have a 1965 Donovan album in his collection, but it's just a little too fishy with Caillat involved)

Default Thanks ChilliD

Heart Try For The Son!!!

The old demo of Try For The Sun listed about 1993--96
is written in Lindsey's handwriting...he mistakenly {or
not}wrote...Try For The SON! Wishfull thinking maybe!!!
That is a nice song and I prefere this more simple demo
before it was rejected by WB and then jazzed up!Sky
