Product description

Product Description

Way To Blue: An Introduction To Nick Drake is the perfect title for this well-compiled collection that exemplifies the full breadth of Drake's work, From the lush orchestrations of Five Leaves Left and Bryter Layter to the sparse acoustic guitar work of Pink Moon and the posthumous Time Of No Reply, Way To Blue features a handful of songs from each album, compiled and sequenced by Drake's friend and producer Joe Boyd.

Amazon.co.uk

These days the term "genius" is bandied about so routinely that it is practically meaningless. However Way to Blue, a 16-track introduction to Nick Drake, proves that the ill-starred troubadour was indeed a genius in the truest sense of the word. Singer-songwriter Nick Drake released just three poorly selling albums during his brief lifetime. A manic-depressive, he committed suicide in1974 aged just 26. Posthumously, his intricately sculpted pastoral psalms have been discovered by an ever-expanding audience. Way to Blue deftly captures the essence of Drake's unique oeuvre, embracing the plaintive poetry and baroque chamber music of his wistful debut Five Leaves Left, the lighter, verging-on-jazzy Richard Thompson and John Cale assisted follow-up Bryter Layter and his troubled, starkly eerie swansong Pink Moon. Throughout, Drake's seraphic vocals, expressively fluid acoustic guitar picking and elegiac lyrics articulate a lexicon of life, love and loss. --Chris King
