Notes

  • Tracks 1, 4, 5, 9 & 12 are stereo remasters from Time of No Reply
  • Track 2 is "I Was Made to Love Magic" from Time of No Reply, sped-up, with a posthumously added string arrangement by Robert Kirby
  • Tracks 3 and 6 are Cambridge-era dorm demos (Spring 1968)
  • Track 7 is a different take than the version originally released on Time of No Reply (July 1974)
  • Track 8 is a different take than the version originally released on Five Leaves Left featuring Rebop Kwaku Baah on congas (March 1969)
  • Track 10 is a remastered version of "Voice from the Mountain" from Time of No Reply
  • Track 11 has a posthumously added string arrangement by Robert Kirby
  • Track 13 is possibly the last song Drake ever committed to tape (July 1974)
