firstly, I'll admit it - I'm an avid fan of Nick Drake's work - the three studio albums are the most directly emotional and beautifully melodic works I know.
a word to the wise, though - I certainly don't recommend this album as a starting point for anyone new to his work - much better to try the well-constructed "Way to Blue" compilation. This collection of offcuts and alternative versions was released to satiate the fans need to have everything that Nick ever committed to tape, so it has none of the coherence and polish of the main three albums. It also spans his entire career, and so there are jarring stylistic differences between the sing-song saccharin of "I was born to love magic" and the death-obssessed whisper of "Black Eyed Dog".
still, there's a rare magic in most of these off-cuts which makes it essential from a fan's point of view, and the sparsity and vulnerability of the later recordings is deeply affecting. Like Joy Division's Ian Curtis, Nick Drake converted his fragile mindstate brilliantly into music & words. The earliest work here is relatively weak, hence three stars, but I would still recommend it as the last chapter of a compelling story.

In his short, doomed yet magical carrer Nick Drake only recorded 3 albums. This CD comprises of 14 non-album tracks. As everyone who knows Nick Drakes music knows, everything he did was quality, haunting acoustic guitar music.. and just because this is "non-album" tracks, it does not mean that they are not as good - the magic is here in equal abundance. There are some early recordings, the excellent "joey" and a gorgeous rendition of "thoughts of Mary Jane" - and there are some songs Drake recorded just before he died. Included in those final works is the eerie "Black Eyed Dog", written by a man who seemed to know he was in his last days. In English folk lore the Black Eyed Dog is an apparition, a harbinger of death which roams the hills at night, and those it appears to will shortly die. Its difficult to listen to this without a shiver going down the spine.

Time of No Reply is an album of studio outtakes and home-recordings that was first released on cd in 1986, as part of the Fruit Tree box set.
Drake fans will enjoy the little mistake, complete with a joke and laugh in "Mayfair," the alternate versions of "Man in a Shed" and "The Thoughts of Mary Jane" (both originally found on Five Leaves Left (1969)), and "Fly" (originally from Bryter Layter (1970)). ("Fly" was also seen/heard in the great film The Royal Tenenbaums). The last four songs here were recorded in 1972, two years after the classic Pink Moon album, and were the last songs Drake recorded in a studio ("Rider on the Wheel," "Black Eyed Dog," (as heard in the films Practical Magic, Serendipity and The Good Girl, among others), "Hanging on a Star," and "Voice from the Mountain").
Other highlights include the intriguing "Clothes of Sand," (most likely written about Drake's travels in sunny Morroco, where he travelled as a youth with a group of friends, and came across and met and played for none other than the Rolling Stones, at a random restaurant (the group was later mistaken for the Stones when they went to get their car fixed at a nearby mechanic. He didn't want money for the work, only their autographs/photos. Little did he know that (a) not only was it not Mick Jagger and the Stones he was talking to, but (b) the tall, quiet young Englishman in question, complete with guitar, was none other than Nicholas Drake, who would become increasingly famous in his own right as the years went on). Also hinting at these sunny travels is the haunting and pretty "Strange Meeting II." Finally, there is a somewhat down-hearted cover of Robin Frederick's "Been Smoking Too Long." (Fans should check out her website for more on Drake, she has a wonderful original song dedicated to him, called "Sandy Grey," which you can find there).
Long-time fans and newbies alike will enjoy this cd, and as with all of Drake's work, I highly recommend it.

I've recently discovered Nick Drake and when I bought his first album, Five Leaves Left, I never thought I would buy this posthumous release made of all the studio outtakes available from his brief recording career, plus a few home recordings. But after having bought the three "regular" albums, well, I just had to have this one too because his music is so great, both depressing and healing. And this album is as good as the three others. Most of the songs are acoustic ; "I was made to love magic", the only one who actually was arranged with an orchestral backing, is wonderful. Listen to it. Listen to Nick Drake's music.

... what ripping yarns this man spins! Although Nick Drake died in the early seventies, his music is still alive today. The last four songs on this CD are his last recordings, and I think the track 'Black Eyed Dog' from these four is as haunting as music can get. It sends shivers down your spine and you are almost ashamed to 'listen in' on a man's utter despair. The home recordings lack the brilliance of official releases, but the songs are beautiful enough to make you wish Nick would have been able to record them in a proper studio. Any man that can keep a dry eye while listening to this CD is devoid of human emotions. This CD is not for the newbie, but for anyone who can't get enough of Nick's beautiful songs. Buy and enjoy.
