Released: September 1969
Not released as a single until 2004, 'River Man' was, in the troubled Nick Drake's eyes, the centrepiece of his debut album 'Five Leaves Left. It's presented in a jazzy 5/4 time and with string arrangements by bandleader and arranger Harry Robinson – a composer of horror film scores and Lord Rockingham's XI's No.1 single 'Hoots Mon' –is exquisite and haunting.
