    Nick Drake died very young, and largely unnoticed, in 1975. The interest in his music however has grown over the years. To me, Nick Drake is purely visionary. And genuine.

    Last year BBC made a special documentary, presented by Brad Pitt, under the title: "Lost Boy - In Search of Nick Drake". Here are some links where you could find more info:

    A bootleg song: "Blossom"

    sup fellow Nick Drake fan. The only album of his I have is Pink Moon. It's on regular rotation.

    Ironic how he passed 5 years after releasing his first album, Five Leaves Left.

    good stuff...I'll admit I hadn't heard of him until that Volkswagon commercial, but he's quite the artist and I'll discover gems like him any way I can.
