This collection offers the curious newcomer a neatly arranged box of beautiful music, presented in a truly authentic way: the packaging replicates the wooden box that Nick Drake’s mother used to send him cakes during his time at Marlborough College.
For those seeking to explore the work of this much celebrated singer-songwriter, Tuckbox is a great place to start.

- Tuckbox by Nick Drake
9/10 Jack 4th February 2015
No new remastering here, none was in fact needed, each record having been recently, wonderfully remastered by John Woods (in year 2000 for the first 3 records; 2004 for “Made To Love Magic”; 2007 for “Family Tree”). The sound is rich and gorgeous for the studio recordings (i.e. the first four records), quite acceptable for the home recordings on the fifth disc. Actually, I was so mesmerised by the guitar work on some of the home recordings that I actually forgot I was listening to a non professional recording.
