The second volume of Nicks 'Wilderness Years Series' 2003 to 2007, looks at the albums 'Blood Songs', 'Treasure Island' and 'Miracles For Beginners'. One of his most successful periods. Pressed on 180g GREEN vinyl this limited edition moves onto a significant period in Nicks life, both musically and emotionally. The sad death of his mother and the birth of his daughter resonates on these albums and it's his appreciation of his family and the strength of love, that when done right, keeps us all going. Blessed with the support of many beautiful people throughout his life, it is the triumvirate of love that is his daughter, mother and the woman he lived with then and now that are depicted throughout these three albums with as much respect and gratitude as he could muster. Highlights include 'Foreplay' and 'Love Junky' which go together and speak for themselves.' 2 Secs' is just a moment on the Bridge Of Sighs in Venice with his gal. 'Real Life' being a big thank you to the same person, someone who understands him when he says he get's all artistic and 'By My Rocket' and 'Treasure Island' are both inspired by an old Greek depiction of life as seven ages and liberal politics/philanthropy of the 19th Century. Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. Having played the guitar from the age of 10 and surrounded by the likes of Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up, it was no surprise when Nick made his recording debut on his father's Whatever Happened To Jugula? in 1985. Nicks a very true and honest character and his songs play out this part of his character, someone who wears their heart on their sleeve. A passion and intimacy thats to be applauded. All of these come to the forefront in both his writing and performing. Maybe this is why he has such a loyal and devoted following, that regularly turn out when he plays. It's a refreshing trait, 'honesty' and Nicks is one of those that is freely expressive about the situation he finds himself in and in the way he sees the world around him.
