|FAMILY BANDSTAND Limited Gatefold 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl LP
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, from 1972, is Family's best known and most successful album and contains the band's biggest hit, Burlesque, and the classic ballad, My Friend The Sun.
The last album to feature John Wetton, prior to his departure to King Crimson, Bandstand featured a harder sound, yet still retained the inventive art-rock quirks that made the band such a unique proposition.
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!).
