7-Tease might be considered the opening of what one could call Donovan’s years in the wilderness. His next to last album, Cosmic Wheels, had managed to generate sales but its successor, Essence to Essence, marked the tipping point beyond which, because of the seeming datedness of his image, or whatever reason, he was no longer regarded by the public as being terribly important or relevant, or his records programmed by radio stations or ordered by record retailers in quantities resembling his earlier work. All of this is a pity because a fair hearing of 7-Tease reveals an album steeped in disillusionment, yet built upon beautiful melodies and some of the most diverse and appealing sounds and arrangements of his career, and a harder rocking sound than he was usually known for (courtesy of Nashville-based producer Norbert Putnam, who’d done something similar for Joan Baez). Listening to it 30 years after the fact is an eerie experience, vividly evoking the feelings of uncertainty surrounding the period in which it was made (and for those too young to know, the early to mid-’70s saw the self-destruction and resignation of a U.S. president, crippling oil boycotts affecting daily life in America, and serious political and social strife on every continent except Antarctica) – all wrapped up in songs that were achingly beautiful, piercing in their directness, and generally as clever as any music of its era. "Rock and Roll Souljer" is a rousing opener (and a could’ve/should’ve-been single) whose spelling is a perfectly valid hint of its direction – it comes with a soul chorus, a bracing, all-too-brief sax solo, and a mix of acoustic and electric guitars that’s pretty much a harbinger of the whole album, and it almost deliberately gives a nod to "Universal Soldier" from the opening of Donovan’s career. The rest of the album crosses boundaries between folk-based balladry ("Your Broken Heart," "Ride-a-Mile"), Dixieland jazz ("Salvation Stomp"), personal confessional ("The Ordinary Family"), folk-pop ("Sadness"), hard electric rock ("Moon Rok"), political commentary intermingled with breezy-’50s jazz-pop ("How Silly"), serious acoustic folk ("The Great Song of the Sky"), topical songwriting ("The Quest"), and some bittersweet reminiscences ("The Voice of Protest"). For all of its lack of success, Donovan later said that he went into 7-Tease the way he approached every album he ever cut, including such unabashed hits as Sunshine Superman and Hurdy Gurdy Man, and he saw no difference in his way of making music or the quality of what he delivered – and it turns out that he was 100-percent correct; 7-Tease is about as good as any long-play record he ever made, and as fine an album that can be heard from any ’60s artist working in the ’70s (and that would include John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez et al).

Review by Bruce Eder, Allmusic.com

1974’s ‘7-Tease’ is one of the most lesser known albums from Donovan Leitch’s canon. It flopped in stupendous fashion, and really, although his last few records had also failed to set both the UK and American charts alight, this marked the beginning of the master Scottish poet’s time in the wilderness. Unfortunately, obscurity is where he has largely remained ever since in terms of commercial success. I adore him though, and his music, and this, his twelfth studio album, recorded in Nashville, is no exception.

What we have here is often a very different sound to those brilliant early folk treasures which had made Donovan’s name almost ten years before, because there is such variety. As man himself stated, ‘7-Tease’s overall theme of that of the ”freedom’ of spirit’. Whilst there are some beautiful trademark folk stories, the style on this record can go from that of breezy pop music to Americana to jazz, to soft-rock songs. With such a repertory on display on just the one single album, no one can rightly accuse this great artist of being nothing less than versatile. Whilst ‘7-Tease’ will never rank amongst his greatest work, like any Donovan album, there are many real gems to discover.

The radio friendly, should-have-been hit ‘Rock and Roll Souljer’ is an excellent, vibrant opener, ‘Your Broken Heart’ is a lovely folky ballad, ‘The Ordinary Family’ is also noteworthy (which some candid, autobiographical references!), ‘Moon Rok’ rocks away pretty hard, whereas the short and simple ‘Sadness’ sounds the most like vintage Donovan, gentle and sincere. The original record cuts out after the thoughtful ‘The Quest’, which is shortly before the wonderfully jazzy 1950s-like dittie ‘How Silly’.

This German re-release of the album from 2004 includes four bonus tracks, two of which are the single versions of ‘Rock and Roll Souljer’ and ‘Salvation Stomp’, as well as ‘Age of Treason’ and ‘What the Soul Desires’, two rarities which made their debut on the ‘Troubadour The Definitive Collection 1964-1976’ Donovan boxset of 1992. There is so much more to this 1960s survivor than just the hits, and if you wish to hear it, I highly suggest that pick out some his more obscure albums like this one.

The accompanying colour booklet is a little thing of beauty, with a new, detailed Donovan essay by famous music journalist Chris Welch, the album’s original liner notes, complete song lyrics, and several great photographs filling it’s pages.
