Product Description

Classic 1970 Family album - now with 6x bonus tracks. Growing out of the R&B boom of the early 60s, Family's sound evolved into a unique mix of blues, folk, jazz, psychedelia and high energy rock'n'roll built around the distinctive vocals of frontman Roger Chapman, Charlie Whitney's innovative guitar playing and Rob Townsend's thunderous drumming. A Song For Me was released at the start of 1970 and the first album with the band's revised line-up with John Weider replacing Ric Grech on bass and Poli Palmer replacing Jim King . The album features the classic Family tracks Drowned In Wine, The Cat & The Rat and the title track, the album reached #4 in the UK charts when it was released. This reissue come packaged in a slipcase and features 6 bonus tracks.

Format: Audio CD
"A Song For Me" is one of my favourite Family albums which when I first bought it on vinyl indicated that as a band they were moving into a more straight ahead rock direction than on the previous two albums. Terrific opener "Drowned In Wine" is followed by a mixture of full on rock and even country rock like "Cat and the Rat". But what makes this a five star for me are the bonus live tracks which I first heard on John Peels Top Gear with the great Jim King on sax. I thought I would never hear these terrific tracks again.

Chappo is still going strong playing a terrific set including some Family favourites at the Y Theatre Leicester, December 2013. Good on yer Rog

Superb highly original and creative band and this is an excellent album by them. Under-appreciated at the time and still.

A fabulous album by the much maligned and overlooked band that defined Prog for many fans.

classic album revisited after many years - still sounds as fresh as when it was first produced. Well worth buying.
