Thread Name: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
I am so relieved that, in all the posts, no one has described Nick Drake`s music as "the most influential of the time" or some such.(I heard this applied to the music of Ian Drury on the BBC recently and I`m sure you know the frustration when you verbally contradict the presenter but you know he or she cannot hear you.)I know people who have spent a lifetime singing, playing, writing and being thoroughly immersed in folk music clubs and festivals but would not recognise Nick or his music.
