Thread Name: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
By chance, I've been listening to one of my stations on Pandora - the music genome project. I set it up entering Mark Knopfler then it plays a bunch of what it perceives as similar. Richard Thompson, whom I've heard before, and Nick Drake, whom I have not heard until now, are both cycling through, as well as a few other well-knowns.
I have to say, I have clicked to maximize the window several times, today, only to find it was Nick Drake and I really liked what I was hearing. I don't recall hearing a lot of strings, etc., so it must be his early works, but it was his voice that attracted me most, anyway.
Too much hype or not enough...I like his music, so far.
