I love the instrumental elements on this album, the lush strings in Cello Song, the melancholy strings forming the backdrop of “Day is Done”, and the low hum supporting the wistful “River Man”. Along with Drake’s mellifluous voice, it makes for rich listening indeed. Makes me think of early evening gloom and treetops tossed in autumn storms while sitting inside drinking a warm cup of tea... read more

Five Leaves Left, recorded in 1969, was the first of three albums by British folk musician Nick Drake. Like Bryter Layter but unlike Pink Moon, this album contains no completely solo songs. Drake was accompanied by members of the British folk-rock groups Fairport Convention and Pentangle.

"Nick Drake - River Man Betty came by on her way Said she had a word to say About things today And fallen leaves Said she hadn't heard the news Hadn't had the time to choose A way to lose But she believes Going to see the river man Going to tell him all I can About the plan For lilac time If he tells me all he knows About the way his river flows And all night shows In summertime Betty said she prayed today For the sky to blow away Or maybe stay She wasn't sure For when she thought of summer"

""Peter Buck of R.E.M. once said that you could turn a Nick Drake song up all the way, but it would still sound quiet. Drake's 1969 debut - recorded while he was still a Cambridge University - introduced the world to his gorgeous, melancholy folk on songs such as "Time Has Told Me."'"
