Long circulating as a tape among hardcore fans, these 18 solo acoustic songs were recorded by Nick Drake at home; most or all of them were probably laid
down before he had ever entered a studio. The sound quality is fuzzy, but
given how little Drake recorded before his death, and how absolutely no
unreleased material exists, this is a Holy Grail (or at least a silver
goblet) of sorts for Drake fanatics. Most of the material is in a far more
traditional acoustic folk and blues vein than his official releases.
