Drake songs... 45yrs on

UNRELEASED tracks by the late singer-songwriter Nick Drake are finally to be issued 45 years after they were recorded, following the discovery of a long lost tape from a BBC session.

The five songs were recorded for John Peel's Radio 1 show in 1969 ahead of his ­second album Bryter Layter - which came out later that year.

They are to be released on vinyl to ­accompany a new book about his life and work which has taken years of work from his sister Gabrielle Drake and the manager of his musical estate, Cally Callomon.
