The Trip

Album: Sunshine Superman (1966)
  • This is a song that could be interpreted different ways. Donovan was playing at a nightclub in Los Angeles called "The Trip," but at the same time was tripping out on LSD shortly before he returned to London where he became the first British musician busted for drugs.
  • Mentioned in the lyrics: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Julian, the adopted son of Brian Jones and Linda Lawrence, whom Donovan just split up with. >>
