Thread Name: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
A friend asked me last year to copy his Nick Drake Vinyl onto CD, since he no longer had a Turntable to play them on.
I kept them on my MP3 player for a year to try to get into why he was so idolised.
I agree that the string arrangements are superb, but gradually, one by one, I have deleted them all.
It's just that I'm overwhelmed by the impulse to shout "Pull youself together, man, Get over it!"
It's just too sensitive for me.
Incidentally the friend is a hard core Biker, and he loves all the songs.
