Diversions Vol. 4 - The Songs And Poems Of Molly Drake
Release Date: 26/05/2017
Catalogue No.: RRM016CD
Record Label: Rabble Rouser
Format: CD

A wistful mother in the 1950s makes some simple home recordings in her family sitting room. Little could she have known that decades later, her son would become one of the most poetic and influential songwriters ever, or that more than sixty years later, the dust would be blown off her own songs. On the surface, the 2013 release of Molly Drakeís work could easily have been perceived as just a curious footnote in explaining the enormous talent of Nick Drake. In the eyes of The Unthanks however, and increasingly amongst others, Mollyís work is extraordinary enough to rank alongside and independently of her brilliant son. With encouragement from the Drake musical estate, The Unthanks are relishing the opportunity and will treat the challenge with the same love and diligence for their subject as they did when reinterpreting the work of Robert Wyatt and Antony & The Johnsonís on Diversions Vol 1.
