Pete Paphides, Observer Music Monthly, 25 April 2004

Since his suicide 30 years ago, his legend has grown and now the discovery of his final recorded song has cast new light on that fateful night in 1974. Family, friends and Drake's former lover reveal for the first time the inner life of an other worldly singer.
