Hi: Has anyone bought the Donovan title "Fairy Tale" either in DVD-A or Dualdisc? I can imagine the 5.1 mix is a Silverline travesty...but how are the overall sonics? I have not been able to find any comments on it in a search.

hey the music is good, but the surround is just reverb/echo. i believe that this was released in Mono originally.

This would have been a good release if tehy had stuck a hi rez stereo/mono track on the disc as well.

I have it now, it’s not really surround sound, but it does sound good. Nice mostly acoustic songs

I have it. Bought it b/c Mrs. Baggins likes Donovan from her childhood (she's named after one of his songs).
It sounds fine. Just no surround-wow.

I suppose for Donovan fans like myself , the BONUS TRACKS , are worth owning this disc .
it is from 1966 I believe so surround wise it's not great , and it's a typical Silverline 5 ch "tried and failed "release.
sonically not too bad overall , if you like Donovan , you may like this.
Was available on DVDA proper, as well as Dual DVDA.
