Recorded at Olympic Studios in late 1969 and issued in January 1970, ‘A Song For Me’ marked a new chapter in the story of the band. The middle months of 1969 had been a period of trauma with the departure of bassist/violinist Ric Grech to join the supergroup Blind Faith and the dismissal of saxophonist Jim King. As a result, vocalist Roger Chapman, guitarist John ‘Charlie’ Whitney and drummer Rob Townsend recruited bassist and violinist John Weider (previously with Eric Burdon And The Animals) and multi-instrumentalist John ‘Poli’ Palmer (previously with Blossom Toes and then Eclection) joined on vibes, keyboards and flute.

As a result of the line-up change, the musical characteristics of Family progressed and ‘A Song For Me’ was a wonderful showcase for the reincarnated band. Upon its release the album reached number four in the UK charts and saw the band enjoy further success in Europe.

This new two-disc edition of this classic album has been newly remastered from the master tapes and also includes 14 bonus tracks drawn from singles and BBC Radio sessions from August 1969 and January 1970. This release also features an illustrated booklet with a new essay and is a fitting tribute to a much-treasured band.
