Competition – win a Nick Drake bundle
***Competition closed and winners notified by email. Thanks for entering everyone!***
We have three bundles of Nick Drake goodies to give away in our competition.
The bundle includes:
- a copy of Joe Boyd’s ‘Way To Blue’ Nick Drake tribute album
- a copy of a limited edition blue vinyl 7″ released especially for Record Store Day
- a copy of Boyd’s ‘White Bicycles’ book.
With tribute album Way To Blue Drake’s original producer Joe Boyd brought together artists including Teddy Thompson, Vashti Bunyan, Green Gartside, Robyn Hitchcock, Lisa Hannigan, Scott Matthews, Krystle Warren, Danny Thompson to record an organic LP celebrating the continuing resonance of Nick Drake.
The Record Store Day 7″ features two tracks. The first by Melbourne duo, Luluc lends a potent melancholia to Drake’s ‘Things Behind The Sun’ whilst on the second track Irish singer Lisa Hannigan presents an evocative rendition of ‘At The Chime Of A City Clock’.
White Bicycles is the autobiography of Joe Boyd and details the what it was like to be in the the very heart of the music scene in the 1960s. His greatest coup is bringing to life the famously elusive figure of Nick Drake the first time he’s been written about by anyone who knew him well.
As well as the ’60s heavy-hitters, this book also offers wonderfully vivid portraits of a whole host of other musicians: everyone from the great jazzman Coleman Hawkins to the folk diva Sandy Denny, Lonnie Johnson to Eric Clapton, The Incredible String Band to Fairport Convention.
