Holiday Hiatus - Nick Drake

From one extreme to another.
Yesterday the raw energy of the White Stripes today the melancholiness of Nick Drake
Yet another artist who found more fame dead than alive although how he would have dealt with it is anyone's guess.
I've just found out that Solid Air by John Martyn is for and about Nick Drake

Nick Drake - Cello Song

Nick Drake - Fruit Tree


  1. I can't overstate how much I love Nick Drake. A tragic story, but an almost perfect body of work.
    'Witchseason' by Linda Thompson is about Nick too.

  2. Agree completely Swede. I didn't discover him until the mid 80s but have absolutely adored his music ever since.
