Art of the Cover - Nick Drake's "A Day Gone By" (2014)


nickdrake-a-day-gone-by1



A nice shot of the enigmatic Drake graces this wonderful extensive collection of Nick rarities.

The massive collection features mostly other people’s compositions: the folk and blues tunes used by many a young guitarist in the 60s, attempting to master the fretboard. Nick Drake played Jackson C. Frank, Bert Jansch, Dave Van Ronk and, of course, Bob Dylan.

Drake's version of Dylan's song "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" is included here.

The lo-fi recordings on this collection were homemade on a reel-to-reel tape recorder prior to making his debut album "Five Leaves Left" in 1969.

Drake's estate - managed by Gabrielle drake and Cally Callomon have put together this collection to stop the proliferation of poor quality bootlegs that have been in abundance since Drake's Death in 1974.
