    ^^ I wouldn't want to pick out an album of his. It's a trilogy of superb albums. Gotta have them all!

    Some years ago I purchased his anthological box Fruit Tree edited posthumous in this version:

    https://www.discogs.com/it/Nick-Drake-Fruit-Tree/release/1936800.

    I was literally entranced by his music and especially his lyrics with a strong character autobiographical.

    I have founded the same sensibility in a few other songwriters.

    I come to mind Laura Nyro and Tim Buckley.

    Don't really know Laura Nyro, but agree with your assessment on Tim Buckley, especially the first few albums (maybe up to Blue Afternoon). Fantastic musician :bow::bow:

    That Fruit-Tree release looks very interesting. What is the DVD like?

    The DVD entitled A Skin Too Few - The Days of Nick Drake was made by BBC and sees Drake's sister speaking about Nick's life and art. There are other interviews (if I remember well, the great producer Joe Boyd) and some of his fine and deep songs. The documentary is also available on Youtube : :)
