Before his death in 1974, Nick Drake returned to the studio to begin work on what would of been his fourth album. Retaining John Wood (producer of Pink Moon) and with Joe Boyd in attendance, Drake completed five tracks. It's not known what else he intended to record and these completed tracks came out on various compilation albums through the years. It's interesting to hear them compiled together and one wonders how the finished album may have sounded.
