Family are among one of the best progressive Rock bands to have emegerged in that late 1960,s early 70,s music era. A brilliant group of musicians e merged together with one of the best gutsy and gutteral vocalists of all time, Roger Chapman.Strange Band is a Fantastic Album.Chapman,s amazing voice throughout the whole Album shows perfect versility in whichever mood the subject of a particular song is about,particularly the haunting melody in The Weavers Answer and the brilliant arrangement of musical instruments and vocals in Strange Band.I am a bit of an Oldie myself so this music suits me down to the ground .It always has done so since first hering Strange Band and Hung Up Down on the B side of The Weavers Answer EP back in 1980. Great Band,great music. I recommend it to anyone who wishes to gain a new musical experience, a Blast from The Past from a formidable group of musicians.
