The Nick Drake Bootleg Collection

Nick Drake

The world is seldom graced by an artist such as Nick Drake.  The remarkable poetry and musical genius of his three studio albums have found a home amongst the hearts of his listeners.  In recent years, numerous collections of outtakes, demos, and home recordings have surfaced (though each with a certain degree of redundancy).  One begins to wonder just how large this fruit tree is and how extensive its roots.  For your listening pleasure, Naturalismo has gathered them all in one place. Enjoy!

  3. Fantastic post. Is there a website that lists the overlap between all these different boots? eg There is significant overlap between “Family Tree” and “Tanworth-In-Arden” but it would be nice to get a definitive detailed breakdown. I think the vinyl and CD versions of “Second Grace” differ too, just to further confuse things.

  4. It would be very nice to get a definitive breakdown. However, as of now there isn’t one.

  8. The Fruit Tree II set is THE one to have; it’s the only title to gather absolutely everything (including the Peel session extract as a hidden track) in the best quality and at the right speed – something all the other titles didn’t bother with.

  9. Thank you SO much!
    Also, for people wondering about the overlap on Family Tree and Tanworth-In-Arden, it is very much worth having both of them, esp. noting the differences in quality on songs like “All My Trials”…there have been efforts made to restore these songs (and to me, they sound better before these efforts were made)…

  16. […]      Since there are so many releases containing the 1967-1969 home recordings, you may wish to consult my article on deciphering the Nick Drake bootlegs. Alternate downloads for most of these can be found here. […]

  17. My 26 year-old nephew just passed away, and he was a fan of Nick’s. i find great comfort in immersing myself in his music. Thank you.

  18. Hugely thankful for these – any chance of then in lossless format somehow? It’s very difficult to share them as mp3

  25. Please would someone reupload their copy of these tapes? They’ve been taken down since megashare was taken offline, and some of us are dying to hear these rare snippets of such an incredible talent! Thanks, Simon

  29. Some songs like “You’ll Never Walk Alone” or “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor” are appropriate for all
    audiences and faiths. How do you know instinctively when to wake
    up in the morning. If you are an artist looking for studio time, here
    are a couple things to help you develop a relationship
    with a good home studio.
