On February the 25th 1972 Island Records released Nick Drake's third, and what was to be his final, album Pink Moon to a largely disinterested press and public. For 4 years the artist Nick Drake had appeared in the various Island Records catalogues and album samplers as much as an anomaly as an essential purchase. Fans of John Martyn, Fairport and Fotheringay may have investigated Drake's work but his own reluctance to tour or sell his work allowed Drake to slip into the same also-ran bracket as Island's Claire Hamill and Tir Na Nog, legends all. The initial 3,000 pressings sold poorly but never quite sold out, and Island kept the title on catalogue up until interest started to grow in Drake in the early 1990s.
