Drake, Nick - Pink Moon CD

SKU 28-ISLAND 2923
SBM version of this wonderful, wonderful album with with lyrics, photos and Nick's hand-lettered lyrics(!) of the brilliant, final work by this genius folkie with the wonderful lightly husky voice and absolute masterful guitarwork. Nick was possibly the greatest of the many great modern folkies who worked with Joe Boyd/Witchseason Productions/Island Records (John Martyn, Richard Thompson, etc). He released 3 really great albums, of which this, completely solo and from 1972, is my favorite, and then he died (of probable, but not definite suicide) in 1974. And, sad to say, that after 30 years, this record finally sold in appreciable numbers because it was used in a car commercial. One of the finest, saddest, jazz-inflected folk albums you will ever, ever hear. Everyone has this, right? But if you don't, you MUST own this. It's fucking $5.00 and it's a brilliant work.
