About this release

Music Club Deluxe is proud to present the ultimate collection from one of the quintessential English rock bands of all time. Featuring the highly idiosyncratic and soulful vocals from Roger Chapman, Family burst onto the UK music scene in the summer of 68 with the breakthrough album Music In A Doll’s House. Their second album, Family Entertainment, followed one year later and gave them their first Top 10 record. However, the band really started hitting their stride by their third album, A Song For Me, which provided them with their first Top 5 album smash and biggest hit to date with ‘Strange Band’.

The hits then followed fast and furious with yet another Top Ten album ‘Anyway’, the US version of which contained their biggest and most popular hit single so far with the highly memorable ‘In My Own Time’ which became a staple on UK radio in summer of ’71. The band’s next album ‘Fearless’ continued the progress once again hitting the Top 20. However, the next album, ‘Bandstand’ included what has to be the funkiest single ever made by a British rock act; the awesomely catchy ‘Burlesque’ – another Top 20 hit in late ‘72. Family called it a day at the end ’73 leaving us with their final Top 30 album ‘It’s Only A Movie’ but leaving behind some of the most unique and definitive music of the late 60’s/early 70’s. Features all of the band’s charting hit singles and includes tracks from no fewer than four Top 20 albums
