Musician, label boss, designer and manager of the Nick Drake estate, Cally Callomon and Richard Morton Jack, author of the recently published Nick Drake : The Life, join host Jim Irvin to select albums they think should be better known.
The records discussed in this episode are: Mighty Day On Campus by The Chad Mitchell Trio (1961), Begin by The Millennium (1968) and Fred Neil, self-titled, (1967).
With two of the foremost experts on Nick Drake in the room we take the opportunity to talk about Nick's legacy, his taste in music, how Richard set about writing about him and how Cally deals with regular offers of festival slots for him.
We also discuss the expectations of record collectors, the early days of the British psych revival and the pitfalls of the baritone in pop.
