Way To Blue: An Introduction To Nick Drake
Nick Drake passed away at just 26 and remained largely unknown throughout his lifetime. Yet his beautiful, acoustic sound has since found a growing audience.
This album comes off the back of immensely successful tribute concerts staged in London and Melbourne in 2011 by former musical collaborator Joe Boyd and bassist Danny Thompson, who played on many of Drake’s original recordings. Artists like Melbourne’s Luluc and Vashti Bunyan impress.
A must for Drake fans.
