About this deal

But Nick’s arrangement had been that, after recording costs had been met on his albums, he would get 50% and Witchseason would get 50%. So I suspect Nick did keep abreast of the other artists Joe was working with, and of course had it in mind that he wanted to work with Joe again himself.

It’s a terrible tragedy, and I think it’s nice to think of ways in which Nick’s life could have turned out differently.

His own clear, flowing prose acts as a link between the many quotes from Nick Drake's family, and others he knew during his life. RU: This is hindsight, but – especially because I’m from the United States – it seems like barely anything was done to get him an international audience, especially in North America, which might have helped with his desire for some sort of validation, some sort of recognition.I think he always knew that Pink Moonwas what he wanted to do – not as a reaction to Bryter Layter, as is often assumed, but just as the next step he wanted to take. Drake’s lack of interest in the opposite sex has led some to speculate whether he was gay; Morton Jack finds no evidence, and records his proposal of marriage to a friend, Sophia Ryde. Richard Morton Jack’s authoritative doorstop is, though, the definitive word on Drake, insofar as the story of a deeply inward-facing man can be told by others.

Cambridge has been quite pleasant this term, but here I am, becoming increasingly sure that I want to leave soon. It builds on everything that has gone before and adds so much detail it can seem, at times, overwhelming. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The story of his illness in 1972, 1973 and 1974 is also the story of him desperately trying, in lots of different ways, to recapture his creativity. To me, it’s obvious that Nick was listening closely to Donovan’s fingerpicking, especially on the acoustic second record in A Gift From A Flower To A Garden.Nick Drake: The Life is the only biography of Nick to be written with the blessing and involvement of his sister and Estate.
