I cannot express my love for today’s musician, Nick Drake. Though most of his work was overlooked and cast aside when it was first released and even up until his death in 1974, Drake’s music has gained a significant cult following and is considered to be one of, if not the, key influence in the resurgence of 1960’s and 1970’s folk traditions, apparent in the works of artists including Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, and Six Organs Of Admittance. Drake only recorded 3 full length albums, “Five Leaves Left”, “Bryter Layter” and “Pink Moon” starting in 1969 and ending 1972. Drake recorded Pink Moon, severely depressed and doubting his abilities as a musician, in two two-hour sessions, both starting at midnight. The songs of Pink Moon were short and emotionally bleak. Drake recorded them unaccompanied with a piano was later overdubbed on the title track. Naked and sincere, it is widely thought to be his best work, and I fully agree. In all honesty, I can’t say anything about Nick Drake that you can’t find anywhere else, so I’m not going to, but I can tell you that he is one of the most brilliant musicians I have ever heard. All I can do I show you his stuff and hope that you all appreciate it for all that it is worth. His music is life changing and change the way you think of most music today. I hope you all enjoy today’s musician as much as we do here at EHBS. Thanks for reading and as always, listen and enjoy.
