Music According to Benedict: Nick Drake Full Discography 1969-1972

Perfect for a quiet, introspective mood - with or without added substances. ;)

I don't know that Benedict Cumberbatch is of an age to portray Nick Drake now, but, once upon a time, he hoped to take on the role.

Q: What roles would you most like to play still? 

A: "A young Nick Drake (the folk musician) – on film or telly. Play-wise, Oswald from Ghosts, Hamlet obviously. And why not Constantine (from The Seagull) as well."  -  20 Questions with Benedict Cumberbatch - "What's On Stage" (April 25, 2005)

It should console him a bit that he'll portray Hamlet - at the Barbican in Autumn 2015, but it would be nice to see a play or small performance piece about Nick in a theater that suits the mood and music.
