Nick Drake (19 June 1948 – 25 November 1974)

La historia siempre es personal. Así es. Y personal es la historia de mi encuentro con Nick Drake. Como siempre, en unas rebajas. Juraría que en la Cooperativa de Urquinaona. Una portada que te decía "comprame, que sólo son veinte duros y no te arrepentirás".

Era el tercer album de Nick Drake (19 June 1948 – 25 November 1974) el primero que descubrí y el último que grabó.

Pink Moon es un album dicen que oscuro. A mi no me parece oscuro. Ni claro. Es un album que me envolvió, que me enamoró. Es la calma con la que uno se enfrenta a los huracanes que le rodean. Es, simplemente, brutal.

Sobre Nick podéis encontrar anécdotas o revisar su web o la wiki... Yo sólo voy a dejaros algo de lo que hizo.
History is allways about myself. That's how it is. The history of how I met the Nick Drake's music is my own. As usual, I met Nick in a discount sales. I think it was near Urquinaona square. The album was one of these that told you "buy me, man, it's only 50 cents and you will not regret for doing that".

It was Nick Drake's (19 June 1948 – 25 November 1974) third album; the first I heard and the last he recorded.

Some people says Pink Moon is a dark album. I don't think so. Neither dark, neither clear. It's a lovely one that gets you. The calm you face the hurricane. From my humble point of view, it's simply wild.

You can read abut Nick or check his web site or the wiki I've linked before... I will only show you something he made.


Horn. Mi preferida. Apenas 1:23 minutos increíbles. Simplemente perfecto, directo al estómago. That's the one I've loved more allways. Simply perfect, a direct punch to your stomach.


Wich will
