    Book details

When singer-songwriter 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 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 Cambridge, 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.

A haunting tribute to this most passionately adored of musicians (INDEPENDENT on Sunday)Excellent (GUARDIAN)A spirited attempt to get inside Drake's world (The Sunday TIMES)A bold attempt to unravel the tragic secrets of an enduring, but still elusive, cult hero. Dann is a fan, but he's not blinkered and goes beyond the usual clichs of Byronesque sensitivity (MOJO)

    Perfect condition, got here fast. The book and the details of his short and troubled life cannot match the intensity and beauty of his music, but the author has done a pretty good job here.

  • By dean hopwood on 25 April 2017

    A very insightful read . A must for all music enthusiasts.

    As a "part time friend" of Nick's -many years ago - i was more saddened than happy with this perception.Read Patrick Humphries book instead - or as a better alternative, just listen to the music.

    An absorbing read that put flesh on the bones of my own recollections of the man. Although i knew him for less than a year, and then for 'fleeting moments' when we would pass in a corridor or share a rare coffee, Trevor Dann's book not only is very faithful to my own recollection of Nick Drake but adds so much that i never knew.Contrary to some of the reviews here, i found the discography really helpful. Dann's interpretation of the lyrics may not be my own, but it was still good to get another viewpoint.But the big thing for me was the nostalgia trip... Back to our youth and the great times of the late 60's. And it resurrected, for me, that image of Nick in my mind's eye as he was then. Baby faced. Lanky. Quietly spoken. Head stooped as he walks. Never spoke of his home. Only of his music. There one day, not the next.. 'With you, but not with you'. Vulnerable. A wandering soul, using his guitar as a kind of 'shield' from a difficult world.All of this and more was what i found in this book.
