In ancient times, a pink moon was an omen of the apocalypse, a harbinger of doom.
The third and last album by Nick Drake, recorded in two two-hour midnight sessions in October of 1971. The album consisted only Nick Drake's guitar and vocals. This album is widely considered Nick Drake's best. Initially capturing a small amount of critical attention, it received more acclaim after his death and even more listeners since the VW commercial used the title track for the Cabrio in 2000.
Pink Moon is such a mellow and beautiful song. I let it lull me to sleep one night. It's sad and tragic to know such a talented musician died so young and at a stage in his life when things were looking brighter.
