Nick Drake- Second Grace
This is an album of alternate versions and unreleased songs. It's good, but clear why they didn't make the cut on the studio albums. This record is intended for the die hard Nick Drake fans. I like Nick Drake a lot. I have a couple of his albums on CD, but not an uber fan.
I got this record for free, and I'm not going to pass on a free Nick Drake record. I will say though that this is great background music while reading a book. Which is what I was doing while listening to it. Book in hand, football game on the TV, and listening to a record. It doesn't get much better than that!
The weird thing about this album is there are no notes on it at all. Just the song titles and that's it. The name of the label or year isn't even printed.
I'm attaching a video for "Northern Sky". It's not on this album, but my Dad reads this blog and takes my suggestions. So if he hasn't ever heard this, I think he'll dig it and download it.
