"I bet the family sound simlilar on "All My Trials", but I bet Nick doesn't sound anything like he sounds on Pink Moon, for example"

He does.

"Also, as mentioned above, the recording of Nick Drake's mum singing Poor Mum (maybe a precursor of Nick Drake's Poor Boy?)"

I think "poor mum" might have been written as a response to "poor boy". or at least, as a sort of little joke on all the 'poor boy'/'ramblin man' type blues songs Nick would have been playing round the house as a teenager.
