Customer Review

on 17 February 2010
In my opinion, 'Family Tree' is not 100% essential listening but is an interesting audio document if you want to dig deeper into the Nick Drake legacy. I had previously heard this in almost unlistenable bootleg form but in its official remastered form it is a lovely piece of audio verite. The family contributions add a certain charm to the recording and the numerous 60s folk & blues standards show what an excellent and individual guitarist Nick was.
The three albums issued in Nick's lifetime should be your starting point (or one of the compilations), then the excellent companion piece 'Made To Love Magic'. If that STILL doesn't satisfy your investigation of Nick's music; then and only then, check this out. It is not a bad album nor a rip-off but a pointer to the treasures to come. Best track? A wonderful solo piano/vocal 'Way To Blue'. If you enjoy Nick's guitar playing, there is much to enjoy here.
