Two days ago a new NICK DRAKE tribute album, titled
The Endless Coloured Ways – The Songs Of Nick Drake
Folk songsmith Drake (1948-1974) was/is an inspiration for many singer-songwriters.
His 3 albums, Five Leaves Left (1969), Bryter Layter (1970), and Pink Moon (1972)
were and still are highly influential and widely lauded. The trouble artist died following
an overdose of amitriptyline, an antidepressant, aged only 26.
You don’t have to know Nick Drake and his work. This double tribute album, featuring
25 covers, can easily stand on its own. This is an exquisite compilation with every artist/band giving their Drake pearl of choice a modern-day sound. Splendiferous.
