Vashti Bunyan on Nick Drake: interviewed by The Line of Best Fit
The Line of Best Fit have conducted a moving and gracious interview with FatCat artist Vashti Bunyan with regards to Nick Drake and Way To Blue, a new tribute compilation of other artists covering the late singer-songwriter's works. Bunyan, who is amongst the artists contributing a cover to the record, reminisces on her brief encounter with Drake: “He seemed like a mysterious, black-clad and unknowable figure to me – a beautiful boy — almost unreal”.
The tribute album is the labour of love of Joe Boyd, who produced early albums for both Bunyan and Drake, with string arrangements by Robert Kirby.
A remastered, vinyl edition of Bryter Later and Way to Blue are both available now. You can read The Line of Best Fit's interview with Vashti Bunyan, here, as well as listen to Vashti's cover of Nick Drake's "Which Will".
