Nick Drake – A Treasury
TAGS:

When even Brad Pitt, following this year’s Radio 2 documentary, has been hauled aboard the bandwagon, you have to wonder what new markets still exist for the mists and mellow melancholy of Nick Drake.

These 15 pickings from the fruit tree of posthumous fame, drawing equally on Bryter Layter, Five Leaves Left and Pink Moon, add up to a perfectly gracious introduction to the oeuvre, though you might best be directed straight to the individual records to encounter the full dappled, dazzled dolour of the man’s work.
