If you like: a roots sound with a penchant for progressive rock (more aligned with the San Francisco stylings of Moby Grape or Quicksilver Messenger Service, rather than the typical blues-y hard-rock Brit outfit) you’ll appreciate this album.
About: A blues-based band with art rock inclinations, Family were one of the more interesting groups of hippie-era Britain. Fronted by the deft and frequently excellent guitar playing of John "Charlie" Whitney and the raspy, whiskey-and-cigarette voice of Roger Chapman, Family were much loved in England and Europe but barely achieved cult status in America. While bands like Jethro Tull, Ten Years After, and the Keith Emerson-led Nice (and later Emerson, Lake & Palmer) sold lots of records, Family, who frequently toured with these bands, were left in the shadows, an odd band loved by a small but rabid group of fans. *John Dougan
