Product Description

Product Description

The summer of 2007 has seen the welcome return of rock/soul fusion cult phenomena The Family Stand. The three original members, Peter Lord, Jeffrey Smith, and Sandra St. Victor have re-united and successfully performed this summer in London’s Jazz Café for two nights, Amsterdam’s Paradiso, Holland’s infamous Trojan Horse in The Hague, and New York’s Central Park Summer Stage, plus PARKPOP - the biggest open air festival in Europe - on the main field. This brand new album is The Family Stand at their ‘in your face’ best. Tackling subjects such as Katrina, terrorism, Enron, and self-reflection, as well as wallowing in the mire of temporary self-deprecation, inevitably rising triumphant to spit fire again. Experience this explosive re-emergence of one of the genres most influential bands. Tracks: Super Sol Nova / Everything Works Out / Getting Happy / 009 Intro / 009 / Dangerous / In The Name Of What? / The Undiscovered Country / Highway / Blazin' / Sometimes / I Thought We Had / Innizout / Breakdown / Divided We Stand / Slipped.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Known Classic 24 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Family Stand (as opposed to the Family Stone) are little known in the UK, their only hit being Ghetto Heaven back in about 1860. However, this album is a "must own" for anyone who enjoys listening to sophisticated soul/R&B.

Super Sol Nova is the album that Stevie Wonder should have made as the 21st century follow up to Songs In The Key Of Life. Disregard the eponymous stadium opener and move straight on to Everything Works Out - an optimistic ditty - followed by the slightly more questioning Are We Getting Happy? Although the first half of this album is very listenable with an interesting interlude into the world of James Bond-esque spies (yes, really) , the later tracks are to me the ones that really make this album a classic. The Undiscovered Country reminds us of a life that it is all too easy to forget in our busy world while I Thought We Had is a painful and truly beautiful lament to a broken relationship. As this album draws to a close, Slipped brings proceedings to a somewhat poignant close.

Take a chance and buy this album. Despite the awful cover art, its a worthy addition to any music-lover's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars great reunion CD 16 Jan 2008
By J. M. C. Nagtzaam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was at their 'unplugged' performance in the Waerdse Tempel in the Netherlands in May 6 2007: this group has still great quality and power. I still can't understand why they never became worldfamous. This CD has the same quality as Moon in Scorpio, maybe better. If you like funk, soul, rock and a fusion of it all, then buy this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sandra St. Victor is back! 30 Jun 2008
By Simone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Family Stand is fantastic, they make great music,but most important: they've got one of the best female singers you EVER heard, Sandra St. Victor. Why she is not world famous, up there with Aretha, Chaka and Mary J. my English vocabulary just can't explain.
Buy this CD, and get Sandra's solo CDs too!
