Now we rise and we are everywhere

Nick Drake has featured here many times over the years. A new addition to the Nick Drake resources is Demian Dorelli's Pink Moon - A Journey on Piano. Impressive interpretation complimented by impressive piano sound captured in Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios. For some, including this listener, the style may be a little too Einauidu for comfort. But an awful lot of people like Ludovico Einaudi. And Einaudi sometimes sounds like Philip Glass on a bad day. And classical music needs a new audience. So what is there to complain about? Now we rise and we are everywhere is a quote from the last track on Pink Moon. It is inscribed on Nick's headstone at Tanworth-in-Arden.
