Nick Drake Nicholas Rodney Drake, Rangoon, Burma, June 19, 1948 - Tanworth-in-Arden, England, November 25, 1974 was an English folk singer known for his gentle, enigmatic songs and his virtuosic right-hand finger picking technique. Although he recorded only three albums, critics and fellow musicians hold his work in very high esteem. Drake failed to find a wide audience during his lifetime and had a strong aversion to performing. Weezer Blue Album. View All. Every note Nick Drake recorded before his accidental overdose in 1974 throbs with similar aching beauty. Morning-glory vocals, couplets of such Elizabethan elegance as Open up the broken cupLet goodly sin and sunshine in and arrangements that wed jazz freedom to the dignity of string quartets make his music - part folk song, part art song - incandescent. The first time I heard Nick Drake was on a scratchy cassette of Way to Blue and, even over the static, I fell in love with him then. Several years later, I heard this album again - this time on a CD copy of the original version - and fell in love all over again. Last night, I played this remaster. For those unfamiliar with Nick Drake, this is the definitive introduction on one album. For those already familiar with the artist, the remastered version of this, or any of his other albums, is a renaissance of his works. You'll hear textures and harmonies you never noticed before, and if you fell for Drake the first time, listen to this and you'll fall for him again. Nick Drake : Way to Blue - an Introduction to Nick Drake,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. Way to Blue is a scaled-back option for those who are enchanted by Drake's intricate yet cozy lamentations, but feel no need to join the ever-growing legion of Drake completists. But while the 16 songs included here provide a fine introduction to the ill-fated Englishman's work which seems to fit together no matter how it's sequenced, Drake is one of those rare artists whose entire catalog is worth owning due to its excellence and, sadly, its brevity. Steven Stolder. Track Listings. Quite a good introduction to Nick Drake. Includes a bit from each album. All the atmosphere and melancholy shimmer is here. Way To Blue. Arranged By Robert Kirby
