Released in standard jewel case with 16 page insert booklet that includes extensive liner notes.

Recorded in the 1960s at Nick's home and in Aix En Provence in France, 'Family Tree' presents recordings that precede his three studio albums: 'Five Leaves Left', 'Bryter Layter', and 'Pink Moon'. These are period amateur home recordings that capture the sketches of a burgeoning songwriting genius as he learns his trade. The songs range from the early influential songs by his mother Molly Drake, through to recordings made by his colleague and arranger Robert Kirby at Cambridge University in 1968. They are presented here in their raw Lo-Fidelity original condition, re-mastered by Nick's sound engineer John Wood.
