Singles out of this album:

· Mee Mee I Love You/Harmony

· Neutron/The Heights Of Alma


· For this album Donovan once again decided to produce the album himself, rather than working with Mickie Most, after the previous album Donovan sold poorly in the UK and the US. Neutronica was first released in Germany and it wasn't released in the UK nor the US.

· Those years he performed in all Europe, protesting against nuclear weapons development (there's a song in the album, Neutron, about the neutron bomb, which only killed people without causing destruction).

· The style Donovan used goes from synthesizer rock to the sound of his usual acoustic folk songs.

· Mee Mee I Love You was co-written by his daughter Astrella Celeste Leitch.

· The Heights Of Alma is a traditional tune from the Crimean War.

· No Man's Land was written by Eric Bogle and it's an anti-war song in which the author talks to a dead soldier by his grave.
