It's nice to believe that the guy who recorded this demo in '67 in Tanworth In Arden, in the comfort of the home, it was a happy guy. Whether it was mostly blues standards - sad by definition - or autograph segments of autumn - gloomy by nature - it does not matter much. Nick Drake then did not even twenty years old, but already chewed the language of dreams and mists, of timid hopes and loneliness, that within 24 months he impressed for the first time on Five Leaves Left. The career - if so it can be called - it was all coming from: they were the carefree years of college, with memories still fresh of a beautiful and adventurous stay in Provence, the time was ripe to stop anyway to tape auditions and some trial and error, between informal session in the family and a few sessions in Cambridge with his friend Robert Kirby, the future arranger of "Way to Blue" and many other small masterpieces of "Bryter Layter".

We can hear Nick's intent to hone his guitar skills in the traditional "Winter Is Gone", studying the blue notes in "Black Mountain", "If You Leave Me", "Cocaine Blues" and "Been Smokin ' Long To " engage in comparison with masters Dylan (Tomorrow Is A Long Time) and Bert Jansch , experience writing in "Blossom", "They're Leaving Me Behind" , "Birds Flew by" and "Come Into the Garden" , unpublished sketches from the handwriting already recognizable, as evidenced by the combination with the most famous "Day Is Done" and "Way To Blue" .

All in a context still far from the cosmic loneliness of Pink Moon, where there is still the possibility of a laugh between takes and the other to perform a Mozart trio for piano, viola and clarinet with his sister Gabrielle and his mother Molly.

The small but intense sparks of light (and life) issued by these old tapes make the acquaintance of Family Tree if not indispensable, at least recommended for any fan.
