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.
