FAMILY - Weaver's Answer (1968)
Who has the greatest rock voice of them all? Is it Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, Dan MacCaffety, Jo Cocker, Robert Plant, Chris Cornell, I don't hear the name Roger Chapman and I am asking the question why? His voice is pure rock, it is so different but distinctive....some say it is like a bleating sheep, these people should be flocked up, sheared and made to listen continually to Glee's Greatest Hits as punishment (no disrespect intended to our younger followers). I loved Family the first time I heard them and always bought their albums until they broke up in the 70s. Roger Chapman continues to make records to this day, check him out.
'The Weavers Answer' from their Entertainment album was one of those records that was always first on after a visit to the pub, rushing home for a fuelled musical session. 'I'm first!'.
I remember when they released 'No Mules fool' in 1970, I bought 5 copies and gave them to my best loved friends. It is still one of my favourites and I have left a copy at the end of this post. Family are there to be loved and shared.
Getting hold of any 'Best of Family' albums will be time and effort very well spent, great stuff!!!
