Between 1994 and 2000 Jason Creed published 19 issues of Pink Moon, a fanzine devoted to the life and music of Nick Drake. This compilation of articles, interviews and other writings, as they appeared in the fanzine, is augmented with additional commentary. It is an illuminating look at this much loved yet most mysterious British singer/songwriter. Included are original reviews of the late artists' albums as they appeared at the time of release and the solitary interview with Nick that appeared in Sounds magazine. Also featured are interviews with many who knew him, including producer Joe Boyd, Nick's sister Gabrielle and parents Rodney and Molly Drake, musical collaborator Robert Kirby and many more. In addition The Pink Moon Files features musical analysis of Nick's recordings, including discussion of his guitar techniques and alternative tunings, reviews of tribute concerts and articles about Nick's legacy in Tanworth-in-Arden and elsewhere. A superb compendium of writing about Nick, this book is a valuable addition to any bookshelf and a must for fans old and new.
