Nick Drake covers Bob Dylan
Family Tree is a 2007 compilation album of home recordings by Nick Drake. The album is notable for the appearance of Nick’s sister, Gabrielle, on one track and the contribution of two original songs performed by Nick’s mother, Molly Drake. Recorded before the release of his first album Five Leaves Left, most of the tracks on the album circulated on bootlegs in the years before official release due to the generosity of Drake’s family in sharing them with fans. The album reached #35 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart, making it Drake’s first album to chart in America. It has a lovely version of Dylan’s Tomorrow Is A Long Time.
Tomorrow Is a Long Time is a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan. Dylan’s version first appeared on the album Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol. II compilation, released in 1971. It was subsequently included in the rare triple LP compilation, Masterpieces.
