Review:

"The latest addition to the evergrowing33 1/3 series (now up to volume 51) is an in-depth look at Nick Drake's finalalbum "Pink Moon". Tackling a 28 minute album of sparse folk by anartist whose life went largely undocumented (there are no known video clips orinterviews with Drake) is a daunting task, but Petrusich handles the job nicelyby telling the story through interviews with the people who knew Drake andworked with him musically, as well as testimonials from current artists whohave felt his influence. She also does a great service to the readers by not paintingDrake as some romantically doomed poetic soul, like so many other writers havedone in the past. In fact, she does an excellent job of dispelling many Drakemyths (ex: he didn't anonymously leave the tapes for Pink Moon at Island's reception desk without saying a word), and evenpoints out flaws in the album (many of the vocals are garbled). The mostinteresting part of the book is the final third which focuses on Pink Moon's21st Century revival thanks to a 2000 Volkswagon commercial featuring the titletrack. While many make the argument that using a song to push a productcheapens the artistry of the song, "Pink Moon" was used to such greateffect that it has simultaneously become synonymous with Volkswagon. Moreimportantly, thanks to commercial exposure, annual sales of the album jumpedfrom 6,000 to 74,000 in the year that it hit the airwaves - exposing Drake'swork to a new generation. Perhaps the best praise I can give the book is thatafter I finished reading it I put it down and listened to Pink Moon." —Losing Today.com

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The reverse of Nick Drake s headstone, wedged deep into the earth of an English parish church graveyard, reads: Now we rise and we are everywhere. The words were penned by Drake in 1974: Thirty years later, they are jarringly prophetic. Like nearly all prematurely buried cult figures, Nick Drake is reinvented each time he is rediscovered. In 2000, the sheepish, astral musings of Pink Moon became synonymous with backing a Volkswagen Cabrio convertible away from a raucous house party, as VW boldly sold American drivers on the notion of eschewing red plastic cups and bro-hugs for moonbeams and tree trunks (and a cute German car - sort of).The Cabrio ad inadvertently sparked an unlikely boost in record sales, propelling the album towards platinum status nearly 28 years after its release. But with each well-intentioned revival of interest, Nick Drake slips further and further out of reach, martyred and codified, superceded and consumed by his own tragic context.Since his controversial death in 1974, Nick Drake has been heralded as a 26-year-old prophet, the diffident enigma, the tortured precursor to Kurt Cobain, the fallen hero, the folksinger-as-folksymbol, the self-sacrificing patron saint of lonely, disaffected teenagers - the One who died for our sins.This book explores how a tiny acoustic record has puttered and purred its way into a new millennium. Amanda Petrusich interviews producer Joe Boyd, string arranger Robert Kirby, and even the marketing team behind the VW commercial. Thirty-Three and a Third is a series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the past 40 years. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. Nº de ref. de la librería AAU9780826427908
