Another dissapointing best of...,
This review is from: The Very Best Of Family (Audio CD)
After waiting years for a decent Family compilation,one that would include their mega rare first single "Scene thru the eye of a lens" i thought its not going to happen so i`ll buy this.It says all their hits and is called the Very Best of.How can this be when the awesome "Weavers Answer" is not even on it or as i can see no tracks from their first 2 classic albums "Music in a Dolls House" and "Entertainment".Somebody please do the honours and get it right and do this great Strange band justice.

Hi Jonny Mo I totally agree. As I was looking through the list of tracks I was thinking where is the 'Weavers Answer'? How can it be called the best of is beyond me.

You can get Scene Through The Eye Of A Lens on the Entertainment CD CYR 822,
released I think in early to mid 90's and this is a bonus track. I wonder if there's a legal reason for these omissions ? There's a decent compilation called In Their Own Time which also lacks any tracks from the 1st two albums. There's always Old Songs, New Songs which you can (now) get on CD and which also contains Today, an overlooked single also often omitted from Family compilations.

No tracks from their first two albums is a bonus for those who already own them!
But no, not the very best.
