Nick Drake - River Man
Nick Drake is dead, and this is only his second single. His output consists of a meagre three studio albums, from which a best of (Way To Blue) has already been culled, as has a rarities collection (Made To Love Magic). Drake's continued absence means that this single is more of interest to Norah Jones fans (who covers 'Day Is Done' on the B-Side) than fans of the original artist. He was undoubtedly both brilliant and influential, but this is nothing more than a shameless cash in single as a lead off for an unnecessary best of.
Good song, shame about the motivation.
