This entry in the MAXIMUM series of unauthorized audio biographies of rock musicians covers the life and career of British singer-songwriter Nick Drake. Largely ignored in his own lifetime, Drake's presumed suicide made him a cult figure for future generations, while his mysterious, atmospheric, mostly acoustic songs left a haunting legacy. Though this bio breaks no new ground and frequently veers off on tangents and dead ends, it does provide a good basic overview of the artist's career, as well as featuring a rare conversation with Drake himself.
