Read full description of the books Nick Drake's Pink Moon:Probably the best 33 1/3 book I've read. A great balance between telling the story of Drake, the album itself, and its peculiar place in music history as a lost treasure rediscovered through a TV commercial, of all things. Readers who were familiar with Nick Drake before the commercial probably won't understand why Petrusich devotes so much exploration to it. But I don't think you can tell the story of Pink Moon without telling the story of how a mass market ad gave a forgotten musician several orders of magnitude more acclaim than he'd ever had before. As one of the legions of Nick Drake fans that first heard of him that way, the book made tons of sense to me, and I really did want to know as much as possible about the creative process behind the infamous ad just as much as the album itself.
