I drank my morning coffee to these songs from Nick Drake’s mother, Molly Drake, and it was the right way to start the day:
Squirrel Thing Recordings, the label behind the mysterious lost recordings of Connie Converse, is proud to announce the release of Molly Drake—a self-titled collection of never-before-heard songs recorded in the 1950’s at the Drake family home, and lovingly restored by Nick Drake’s engineer John Wood. According to Joe Boyd, legendary producer of Five Leaves Left and Bryter Later, “this is the missing link in the Nick Drake story.”
Here’s a Fresh Air interview from 2007 with Joe Boyd about making music in the ’60s.
So so good.
