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!
7. “Rider On the Wheel”
Time of No Reply, released years after Drake’s death, collects among other odds and ends some of Drake’s final recordings. Recorded in February 1974, nine months before his death, “Rider On the Wheel” is one final whimsical track from the singer. By this point Drake had deteriorated to the point where he could no longer sing and play his always-complicated riffs at the same time. Hampered or not, Drake’s playing here is fantastic and as original as ever.
