180g Vinyl Reissue of Compilation Album!
A singular talent who passed almost unnoticed during his brief lifetime, Nick
Drake produced three studio albums of sombre beauty: Five Leaves Left (1969),
Bryter Layter (1970), and Pink Moon (1972). It’s impossible to keep count of the
contemporary artists who cite Drake as an inspiration, but a cursory round-up
includes R.E.M., Paul Weller, Travis, Portishead, The Coral, Coldplay, David
Gray, Super Furry Animals and Beth Orton. Along with household names of his
creative lifetime--The Stones, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix--his albums
have become an unofficial set text for anyone passionate about music.
A Treasury is a true collection in the basic sense, this single-disc LP--with
notes written by Peter Paphides specifically for this vinyl release--contains
songs from Drake’s three primary albums, with a few tracks taken from Made to
Love Magic. Both the words and music on this release further illustrate the
great depth and passion of Drake’s songwriting among the canon of his recordings
from 1969 to 1972, the year Pink Moon debuted.
A Treasury is the definitive collection of 15 classic songs by Nick Drake.
With all the profile that he received earlier in the year for his "rarities"
release, this is the perfect album for curious music lovers to pick up.
