50 years of tunes - 1972 - Nick Drake "Pink Moon"

I've written about this album a couple of times already. I only really got to grips with Nick Drake in the last 10 years but really love all his work now. Pink Moon was his third and final studio album, it made number 3 in my Top 50 Albums of the Seventies and is one of my favourite albums of all time. Whilst still a folk album at heart, the album benefits from sparse production that gives the tunes space to shine. Nick's voice is fragile but captivating and the instruments recorded so clearly you can hear detail like the twang of the strings.
