You'd think there wouldn't be much more to present by a songwriter who recorded three albums in his lifetime and has been dead since 1974. However, interest in Nick Drake's riveting music has grown enormously in the new millennium. Rarities were added to a number of posthumous collections, but with Family Tree his estate has brought forth an hour of music that predates his first album, Five Leaves Left. This set illuminates Drake's musical background, with his mother and sister appearing, and even Drake himself on clarinet for a Mozart trio. He covers traditional numbers as well as songs by Dylan, Blind Boy Fuller, and Jackson C. Frank. There are clear links to his own early compositions, including a couple early versions that appeared on his debut. Some of this has circulated on bootlegs over the years, but here assembled and sonically polished, it radiates with warmth. Recorded in casual circumstances, there are bits of chatter and laughter between songs, painting a picture of a happy, loving home scene.

Tout Ferré, je n'ai pas (encore) mais qui sait... ;)

Par contre, je suis assez peu fan de ce que je connais de Manset donc ça ne risque pas trop... :S

Tracks 19 to 24 are wrongly named. Check wikipedia's info about Family Tree to see that a few tracks are missing depending on the cd version.

Apparently this version doesn't have the extra two tracks!
