re-issue of drake's 1969 debut album, his striking & utterly unique compositions accompanied by members of fairport convention & pentangle.

opening with the incredibly touching 'time has told me' the bar doesn't really drop from there, from 'river man's haunting refrain, through the astonishing voice-&-strings combination of 'way to blue', the simply lovely 'cello song' & heart wrenching rainy day melody of 'the thoughts of mary jane', drake's masterful guitar style & distinctive, wispy, wind-through-reeds voice finds a perfect counterpart in danny thompson's trademark double bass.

***the lp boxset offers a heavyweight re-mastered vinyl record housed in a clamshell-style box & comes complete with facsimile handwritten lyric sheets, a poster & album credits on a card replica of the original master tape. includes a download code***
