History

In the late 1980s, Epic Records and EMI Records began releasing Donovan's music on compact disc for the first time. In the United Kingdom, EMI added several tracks to Donovan's Greatest Hits, shuffled the track order and added several songs from Barabajagal as well as four b-sides that had not yet been released on an album. The album's cover art depicted a photograph from the same photo session that produced the album cover for Wear Your Love Like Heaven.

Even after Troubadour: The Definitive Collection 1964-1976 reintroduced "Poor Cow" and "Teen Angel", "Preachin' Love" and "Aye My Love" were unique to Donovan's Greatest Hits and More until they were included as bonus tracks on the 2005 remastered versions of Mellow Yellow and The Hurdy Gurdy Man.
