Have you ever wondered about the title of Nick Drake’s ‘Five Leaves Left’, his 1969 début album? Did you think maybe it sounded spiritual or maybe profound? Well it might sound that way, but it was inspired by the fact he’d nearly run out of Rizlas for his, presumably, Wacky Baccy rollups! In fact Rizla packets used to include a note towards the end which said something like “only five leaves left”. Do they still have that?
