History

By 1983, Donovan's albums were receiving little distribution in the UK and none in the US. His popularity had steadily decreased throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, and mainstream record companies were not convinced that Donovan's albums could generate enough record sales to warrant release. Donovan decided that to win over the record companies and reach his American and British fans, he would record new versions of both "Sunshine Superman" and "Season of the Witch" for inclusion on his next album. Both songs were released on Sunshine Superman in 1966 and Donovan's Greatest Hits in 1969. The name recognition of these two songs would give the record companies marketing leverage and guarantee release.

In addition to "Sunshine Superman" and "Season of the Witch", Donovan updated three other songs from his canon. Two of these songs, "Lady of the Stars" (written for Donovan's wife Linda Lawrence) and "Local Boy Chops Wood" (written about Brian Jones) were originally released on Donovan in 1977. The other song, "Boy for Every Girl" was released on his 1973 album Essence to Essence. Donovan also included five new songs and titled the album Lady of the Stars for his wife Linda.

Donovan : Sunshine Superman (Remember) - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect (240 words)
This album, which was Donovan's 17th studio project, was originally released as Lady of the Stars in 1984.
Most of what is here is forgettable, save for the competent title track, "Lady of the Stars," which has a little bit of the old Donovan magic, and a re-recording of the odd "Local Boy Chops Wood," reportedly written for former Rolling Stone Brian Jones, the original version of which had appeared on 1977's Donovan.
Lady of the Stars has been reissued countless times by several labels under an assortment of titles, including Till I See You Again, Gold, Golden Hits, Golden Tracks, Forever Gold, Sunshine Superman (not to be confused with Donovan's fine 1966 release of the same title), and Sunshine Troubador.
