Born in Rangun/Birma (now Myanmar) Nick Drakes first recording Five Leaves Left happened only 20 years later. At that time he was still at Cambridge University. Named after the warning message near the end of packs of cigarette papers, it was an instant classic album. He was accompanied by members of the British folk-rock group Fairport Convention and contains many of his most memorable songs such as Fruit Tree, Cello Song, Time Has Told Me, and River Man. One of the most beautiful and melancholy albums ever recorded!
