    Gave this a good listen. There is an innocence to his songs with dark turns. He is now one of my favourite guitarists of all time. The way the guitar speaks to you while Nick Drake sings his songs is powerful. He was a master of his instrument and then there are the lyrics. In several songs he hints at some kind of end as if it is his final album.

    This is a somber album. It is also beautiful. When you are sober and have been through some things this album can make you cry with an empty stare. One of the best albums I have ever given a proper listen.

    This song will linger for a long time...

    Now going back to some long-unheard jazz albums. Currently, it's Wynton Marsalis: Standard Time, Vol. 3 (Vol. 1 played prior to this).

    I heard Pink Moon for the first time in '89. It has been with me ever since. Like Kind of Blue or The Velvets 3rd, it's in a class by itself. I tack on Rider on the Wheel, Black Eyed Dog, Hanging on a Star and Voice from the Mountain (the last songs he recorded) for a complete experience. I'm always happy when I see people getting into Nick Drake, like seeing a sunset for the first time.

    TFW you find that good album you didn't intentionally lose, and weren't seeking when found...

    At a cafe just outside Atlanta at the moment and they’re playing Michael Jackson’s Dangerous album. I should listen to this more.
