Darker than the Deepest Sea: The Search for Nick Drake

by Trevor Dann - £10.99  Judy Piatkus Publishers Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780749951337 | ISBN 10: 0749951338

When singer-soongwriter Nick Drake died of a drug overdose in the autumn of 1974, he left behind only three well-received but modest selling albums. Today, he is recognised as one of the true geniuses of English folk music, with millions of fans worldwide and a regular place in all-time best album lists.
Using many newly discovered documents and all-new interviews with the singer's friends and associates, Trevor Dann's book reveals more detail on Nick Drake's life than ever previously published, from his early years in Tanworth-in-Arden and Cambrideg, to the missed opportunities and mismanagement that defined his recording career, to the remarkable 'Drake cult' that has grown since the singer's death at age 26. An unflinching portrait of a reclusive and gifted artist, Darker than the Deepest Sea is essential reading for any serious music fan.

"Running deeper than the usual pot-of-coffee-and-Google rock bio, Dann's book is the result of wide travels, prolific interviews and an enthusiasm for the subject which never overboils into frothing fanmania. Excellent."
