Choice Cuts: The Best of Nick Drake
40 years after his death, Nick Drake's music shines. Here are some favorites that you owe it to yourself to check out!
2. “One Of These Things First”
For Drake’s second album, the awkwardly titled Bryter Later, a change of sound was deemed necessary. The baroque folk approach fell flat commercially, so Drake was determined to make Bryter Later a more upbeat affair. Mixing this time with Drake’s always-brilliant playing was a jazz piano-bass-drums rhythm section. “One Of These Things First,” with a gorgeous, lively riff that finds equally supple piano playing as its constant companion, is one of Drake’s most endearing songs.
