Nick Drake Rarities Album Track List, Release Date


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Open the vaults! Let the Nick Drake flow from within! Now you can have your Drake and eat it too, because on June 19th, the much-anticipated release of Nick Drake's Family Tree will be unleashed on the world. The world, we expect, will never be the same.

It's worth telling that the music on Family Tree was recorded in the 60's on a reel-to-reel tape recorder, giving a lo-fi sound to the already patented Nick Drake sonic aesthetic. As the name suggests, a lot of tracks feature family members rounding out the musical ensemble.

The compilation was put together after Nick Drake fans called for better quality recordings to honor his memory with something suitably packaged. Family Tree aims to do just that.

"I hope that, in the circumstances, you could have given "Family Tree" your blessing. Or if not, that you could have at least looked on with that wry smile of yours," says Gabrielle Drake in a letter to her deceased brother that's included with the compilation.
