Nick Drake Compilation Set for June Release

Published: 2007-05-11
On June 19th, Tsunami LG and Fontana Records will make available for purchase Family Tree, a compilation of Nick Drake's home recordings which were written and recorded before Drake's debut in 1969.

With 28 tracks, one in collaboration with Drake's sister Gabrielle and two sung by his mother, Molly, Family Tree's release will be followed by a reissue of the late folk singer-songwriter's 1986 boxed CD set Fruit Tree, along with a documentary entitled "A Skin Too Few".

Drake passed away in 1974 at age 26 but his music found new life when the title track of his album Pink Moon was used in a 2000 Volkswagen advertisement.
