5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and Fitting Tribute to Nick Drake's Songs., 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Way To Blue - The Songs Of Nick Drake (Audio CD)
A brilliant idea perfectly realised. If you have seen one of the concerts live or on TV, you will know what to expect. Wonderful musicianship and passionate, intelligent versions of some of Nick Drake's songs. I have waited patiently for this CD to come out and am delighted to finally have these songs on disk.

Green Gartside can no wrong (and btw have you heard his songs on Tracey Thorn's Christmas album?) and his version of Fruit Tree is soulful and thoughtful and a cover that for me is up there with the original. I would also pick out One of These Things First and Robyn Hitchcock's slightly psychedelic version of Parasite as beautiful tracks.

This concert also pointed me in the direction of Lisa Hannigan and Teddy Thompson whom I didn't know at the time. An unquestionable, no room for doubt, 5 star CD. How about a follow up? There's no shortage of other brilliant Nick Drake songs in spite of his sadly short life. A genius of a songwriter and these recordings are totally in the spirit of the man. Apparently he never sung many of the songs in public. He would surely be pleased and proud with the performances of those who have done it as a tribute to his great work.
