Reviews

Sometimes painfully honest, often emotional, occasionally funny, sometimes dry and scholarly - always deeply engaging - REMEMBERED FOR A WHILE is probably the most ambitious, generous and thorough volume about a musician to see publication. Put simply, this is the authoritative resource for fans and future historians who may find themselves considering Nick Drake. In its absolute integrity and its sheer dignity, it is second only to his music - Mouth MagazineA beautiful book - Guardian FamilyThis gorgeous new book, co-compiled by his sister Gabrielle, is not a biography, but a deeply considered collection of essays, lyrics, photos and extracts - Sunday Times Books of the YearThis authorised companion to the wistful genius with a troubled mind includes contributions from friends, collaborators, critics and family - Telegraph Books of the YearFrom the beautifully tactile cover onwards this musical companion is a genuine delight, featuring never seen before photos, family scrapbook press cuttings, handwritten lyrics, letter extracts from Nick to his parents and also from his father Rodney's diary...Sad but ultimately celebratory, this beautiful publication is the closest any book has yet come to capturing the 'real' Nick Drake - Total Music MagazineGabrielle Drake's beautifully put-together tribute to her brother Nick Drake . . . I loved looking at the unseen photos and listening to the unreleased John Peel session that came with the book - Observer Books of the YearExactly 40 years after his death, acres have been written about Drake, but nothing authorised had come from the Drake estate. This gorgeous new book, co-compiled by his sister Gabrielle rectifies this. It is not a biography, but a deeply considered collection of essays, lyrics, photos and extracts, including from the diary of Drake's father as the folk singer sank into his fatal depression - Sunday TimesI'll be dipping in and out of the sumptuous Nick Drake: Remembered For A While for years to come - Daily Telegraph
