Nick Drake isn't exactly the first name that comes to mind when you think of the early '70s singer/songwriter movement, but he had just as much talent as his contemporaries. In his short career, he released three albums, culminating with Pink Moon, which is now considered by many to be his best work. While, like rest of the songs in the album, it is short, it acts as a beautiful centerpiece for a larger work that is teeming with moments of great musical and lyrical depth.

Got any favorite folk singers?
