11:07 Worlds of Music
Trevor Reekie hosts a weekly music programme celebrating an eclectic mix of 'world' music, fusion and folk roots. Tonight, Trevor features an interview with American born Producer Joe Boyd talking about the recording of English singer-songwriter Nick Drake's debut album, Five Leaves Left, released 50 years ago in July 1969.
Drake only ever recorded 3 studio albums, played a handful of live shows and reluctantly agreed to one interview over the course of his career and at the time, those albums never achieved the potential they richly deserved.
Drake died, aged 26 in November 1974.
These days Nick Drake is credited as influencing some of the biggest names in music, resulting in over 2.4 million albums selling … and still counting.
