This week it's the turn of singer-songwriter Julian Lennon to choose the 'Tracks Of My Years' and today's selection includes a song performed by his father's group The Beatles and perhaps the best-known song by Nick Drake which is featured on his album 'Five Leaves Left'. Born in Liverpool to the late Beatle John Lennon and Cynthia Powell, Julian released his debut album 'Valotte' in the early eighties which earned him a Grammy nomination for 'Best New Artist'.
