Cello Song by Nick Drake

“This was the song that hooked me on Nick Drake nearly 20 years ago,having had no idea what he sounded like during 70's and 80's.Have now got this on vinyl as part of the beautiful Remembered For A While set.Lovingly put together by sister Gabrielle and Cally,it is a fitting testimony to a short,but remarkable,life.”

Released in July 69, but always sounds pretty Autumnal to me. First Nick Drake song I ever heard, and still very powerful. Sad, chilly sounds for September....

Gabrielle Drake has just released a book about her posthumously famous brother, Nick. While some critics and fans tend to focus on the depressive and "doomed" aspects of Nick Drake's music & lyrics, I've always from him sweetly, if a little sadly, romantic. http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/nov/15/i-want-to-complicate-the-nick-drake-story

D is for Nick Drake. When you do the fantasy dinner party thing I always add this man. His voice was sublime. Didn't hear it until my first year of Uni when my boyfriend played 'Pink Moon' a lot. My ex husband 7 years later bought me 'Bryter Layter' and we had 'Northern Skies' as our first dance at our wedding #ABCsofMe   14

I discovered Nick Drake about five years ago, a sad dead artist with his frozen and forgotten songs. The songs have a strange melancholy, in the Cello Song, the cello and the guitar with Nick´s lyrics stand up as a monument of that time, and in some degree, my youth.   3
