Nick Drake - Bryter Later
180 Gram with Download. Island Records presents Nick Drake's second album 'Bryter Layter' in the Back To Black format. The album has been remastered at Abbey Road from master tapes by the album's original engineer John Wood. After crafting a debut album full of beauteous, somber chamber-folk, Nick Drake pulled something of an about-face with the follow-up, 'Bryter Layter'. With a bright, sparkling production and orchestrations that occasionally border on easy listening, the framework is light and airy where 'Five Leaves Left' was dark and foreboding. The key, however, is that Drake's artfully expressed inner turmoil peeks through at every turn in the lyrics and in his understated-but-heartfelt vocal delivery.
