Nick Drake
Made to Love Magic (Reissue)
Island/UMe

Judging from oddballs like Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom,eccentric English folk seems to be a new American indie-rock fetish.Guru of melancholy Nick Drake was certainly an eccentric Englishfolkie, but a bummed-out one; his gorgeous music was more sepulchralthan whimsical. Dead at 26 from an overdose of antidepressants, he leftbehind three completed albums, all essential, plus a bunch of worthyloose ends. This set rehashes some of the latter, along with a newlydiscovered finale, "Tow the Line," which finds Drake standing on thebrink, waiting for directions that he never got.
