 Fantastic! I was just at home thinking about what CD I should purchase tonight, and this was one of the ones I kept coming back to. I really do love Five Leaves Left, and I want to experience his work in the proper order, so I guess this is the next step. Drake was definitely an artist that everyone could connect with, and want to share with their friends (or father's colleagues, whatever), so his work and his legacy will unquestionably live on as long as there are people who can appreciate a sole guitarist with a song. Everyone says that Pink Moon is the place to go, and I've hardly encountered much writing about this album, so it was a pleasure to read.

 Thanks very much badhaircut. Nick Drake's music will live on as long as there are people sharing the stuff out and TV stations using his records as incidental music too. As for Pink Moon, it's a great record, and I know it has a more intriguing history what with it running alongside his decline and all. It just leaves me feeling numb i guess. Not that it isn't heartfelt, because it is, but I just never know exactly how to feel with it. Anyhow....
