All Analogue Audiophile Pressing!
180g Virgin Vinyl Double LP Mastered at Abbey Road!

Family Tree is a compilation of unheard and/or unreleased songs which include Nick Drake originals as well as obscure covers of songs by Jackson C. Frank, Dylan and Blind Boy Fuller.

Family Tree presents recordings that precede Nick Drake's three studio albums, Five Leaves Left, Bryter Layter and Pink Moon. Recorded in the 1960s at Nick's home and in Aix-En-Provence, France, these are period amateur home recordings that capture a burgeoning songwriting genius learning his trade. The songs range from folk and blues standards to early influential compositions by his mother Molly and recordings of Nick made by his colleague and arranger Robert Kirby at Cambridge University in 1968. They are presented here in their raw, lo-fidelity original condition, remastered by Nick's sound engineer John Wood, and are accompanied by an eight-page explanatory booklet.

Among the self-penned tunes are the haunting "Leaving Me Behind" and "Come Into the Garden". Also included are performances by his mother Molly and sister Gabrielle.
