Product Description

Deluxe 2CD set - classic 1972 album newly remastered from original tapes plus bonus disc featuring previously unreleased 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. Bandstand is the band's best known and most loved album. Moving towards a harder sound, yet still retaining some of the art-rock tendencies that made the band so unique. Containing the hit Burlesque and the evocative My Friend The Sun, Bandstand was the last album to feature John Wetton prior to his departure to King Crimson. This special edition reissue is packaged in a deluxe hard back book. It is the first in a series of re-mastered classic albums from the Family catalogue to be released on Madfish. The albums have been newly re-mastered from the original tapes for these reissues and previously unheard tracks also been uncovered. Four of these unreleased tracks are included on the bonus disc of this edition of the album. The tracks are early demo versions of tracks that are featured on the original album.

This album is in my opinion the best and most accessible of all the Family albums. From the meaty funk of Burlesque and Ready to Go to the wistful My Friend the Sun the band have never been tighter and Chappos voice is a marvel to be heard. The accompanying sleeve notes and pictures of memprabalia etc from the time just makes this a must have for me and surely any self respecting Family fan - go get it while you can

A great album from a great band. This remaster is probably the best yet and the extras a welcome addition for any fan of a certain age. The Repertoire replica is also a great copy - buy either and you will be pleased. Buy the 14CD box set and you will be in heaven!

Having bought the vinyl many years ago this CD was a must to buy. Sound quality was excellent and the album was as good now as it was 40 years ago. I would recommend it to anyone who listens to Rock/Prog music. One of the best

another classic to add to any ones 70's rock collection, disc 2 is a bit of a thrown in but the album is what it is all about and even if you're not a Family fan it will add to a memorial period in rock history
