  • Tracks 5, 7, 9 & 10 are home demos from 1967-1969
  • Track 6 is from a pre Five Leaves Left session (October 1968)
  • Track 8 is a different take than the version originally released on Five Leaves Left featuring Richard Thompson on guitar (December, 1968)
  • Tracks 11, 12, 13 & 14 are the so-called "final 4" recordings (February 1974)

Personnel[edit]

Nick Drake performs vocals and acoustic guitar on all songs, except where indicated otherwise.

Plan for remastered version[edit]

The Island executive who compiled the Family Tree collection indicated plans to remaster Time of No Reply (which was not originally released on Island, but on Hannibal Records), with a different track listing. This became Made to Love Magic.[2]
