Nick Drake's Jukebox

Nick Drake's Jukebox


One of contemporary music’s true originals, the inimitable songs of Nick Drake are often difficult to imagine having been influenced by anyone but himself. But as with all true musical giants, Drake’s compositions and style were informed by a diverse range of musicians, songwriters and performers who came before. From the sublime finger-picking and glorious tunes of the wholly under-rated Bert Jansch to the country blues styles of Big Bill Broonzy and Reverend Gary Davis - via Donovan, The Yardbirds and Miles Davis, he listened to all of them and many others besides. The inspiration these mavericks providedmotivated the often manically depressed Nick Drake into writing , recording and, on the very rare occasion, performing some of the most beautiful music ever written – albeit, tragically, the process would contribute in no small way to his untimely deathat the age of just 26.
This compilation traces the roots of Nick Drake’s astonishing music and features all of the above mentioned artists and many others– with 24 superb and moving tracks, which now can be appreciated all together on this collection, enabling the appreciation of where this mysterious and legendary figure found much of his musical muse and hopefully, for a man often tortured by his own existence, at least a little comfort.
