Nick Drake tonight. A name that didn't register at all in the U.S. and barely registered in the UK until after his untimely death, the music of Nick Drake has created a huge renaissance in recent years. His all-too-few albums have been reissued, documentaries have been made about him, tributes have sprung up all over the world. And for a singer-songwriter who couldn't get arrested when he was alive, that is all something of an irony.

Tonight it's a track from his debut album for Island Records in 1969. Five Leaves Left first arrived on the scene to lukewarm reviews and promising, but not overwhelming sales. Saturday Sun ends the album, and in typical Nick Drake style, ends it on a note of melancholy.

An auspicious beginning. But at the time it didn't seem so.
