Thread Name: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
I liked, and was buying, Nick Drake's music when he was alive and I still listen to and enjoy his music today. However, when I played one of his records for my 23 year old son, who had been hearing about him and was curious, he didn't see what all the fuss was about. Maybe you had to be there at the time, I don't know, but I think his music stands up to time and his subjects are universal and that's why every generation seems to "discover" him. My opinion.
