Product Description

Product Description

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 edition is pressed on heavyweight (180g) vinyl and packaged in a radio-shaped gatefold sleeve that mirrors the original iconic artwork (with window patch and shaped inner bag too!). This special edition reissue is strictly limited to 2000 individually numbered copies and is the first in a series of re-mastered classic albums from the Family catalogue to be released on Madfish.

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

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

Oh Happy days! Takes me back to college days in the 70's, and the sound quality seems so much richer than the CD...or am I just being subjective? Probably, but having that thick black disk, the sleeve and sleevenotes is just such a treat!

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!

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

Snapper/Madfish/Pukka have released this as a two CD set. CD#1 has the original 9 track album. CD#2 has 4, that's right, 4 demos. Buy the Repertoire version Bandstand while it's still in print. It sounds fantastic, comes in a mini-LP sleeve EXACT REPLICA of the original album's TV sleeve, has 4 bonus tracks and is cheaper......

Other Repertoire exact-replica FAMILY releases: Anyway, Fearless
