Vince, thanks for the birthday wishes.I was a Nick Drake fan since I heard a DJ, jeff Dexter, playing him at the Roundhouse, London, where we did several gigs. In fact we were the only people to record one of his songs when he was alive, except for Millie of "My Boy Lollipop" fame who had a song of his on a b side apparently. They shared a manager, Chris Blackwell. I do "Northern Sky" on the new CD, first track again in fact. Pretty faithful rendition as opposed to what we did with "Free Ride". The only other cover is called "Blew My Clouds" written by friends from my hometown Carlow. I produced their version on a single back in the mid 80s. I'm very pleased with the record which I should have in about a week in a half. How many did you say you wanted!?Though it was recorded in 9 different studios over 27 years(the recording process can be so slow!) it sounds very homogenous to these jaded(from listening to it)ears. All the best, Leo.
