Steve Reid of the Rippingtons/Supertramp fame, and Danish-producer Bo Astrup produced the song.
Says Raspin, “Donovan has always been an inspirational artist to me; both lyrically and musically.” Raspin artist also served as the vocalist for TV’s The Wonder Years, where he deftly covered “Catch The Wind,” also by Donovan.
His first solo record, We Do What We Do, was tremendously received by the industry, with one writer saying: “His songs place a premium on intelligence lyricism; demonstrating a clear and almost writerly (in print) sensitivity.” The album was licensed through Starbucks and received considerable acclaim and airplay in their stores.
From the Leon Redbone/Leon Russell-school, Raspin is a captivating presence both onstage and in his songs. Hands down he emerges as a true song stylist.
What We Do is a song cycle; a collection of lustful, political and often daring songs that emerge from the artist’s consciousness. Utterly irresistible and significantly unique!“Hurdy Gurdy Man” is available through itunes.
