Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 collection of never-before-heard songs recorded by Nick Drake's mother, Molly Drake, in the 1950s at the Drake family home. The recordings have been lovingly restored by Nick Drake's engineer John Wood. According to Joe Boyd, legendary producer of Five Leaves Left and Bryter Later, 'this is the missing link in the Nick Drake story.;; for fans of Nick Drake, Molly Drake reveals an undeniable influence on her son's celebrated canon. Moreover, these songs present a comprehensive first look at a singular and sophisticated artist in her own right. Molly Drake's music is at once beautiful, charming, dark and pensive. The easy elegance of her lyrics belies their deeper themes of regret, memory, dread and the sublime, crystallized as only a poet can. Her performances are intimately staged in the family sitting room, and perfectly complemented by her own piano accompaniment. with an initial CD pressing that quickly sold out earlier this year, Molly Drake is now receiving a grander release, and appearing on vinyl for the first time. The album features family photos and a biography by her daughter, Gabrielle Drake.
