Summer 67 - Family - Family Entertainment

What, were you obligated to have a sitar tune in '69 or something? Regardless of sitars, the tune itself is fairly lifeless. There's nothing wrong with "Emotions," but it's also a little It's a nice enough song from a technical point of view, the little ascensions played with the rhythm and blues melody, and is that a steel drum in the background?

Still, it feels a little So you see what I mean this being a letdown from Doll's House? One thing that might not be so obvious is the variety; since this album is more smoothed out, it also means that Family have stopped running in all directions trying to find something to grab onto.

Of course, Family are a naturally varietous band, so eclecticism lovers need not worry that much. But more pressing is that Doll's house didn't have any filler like "Emotions" or "From Past Archives" on it, nor anything just plain bad, like "Second Generation Woman. In fact, I'm having some trouble thinking of a lot of other records that have something like "Weaver" on 'em too. In the long run, what am I talking about anyway? For one thing, Doll's House was so near to perfection it would have taken a Thick as a Brick to improve upon it anyway, and besides, Entertainment is still as good as some bands are ever capable of doing.

And I think that everyone needs to hear "Weaver's Answer" at least once in their life. We couldn't ask for a better opener in 'The Weaver's Answer', full of compelling melody and rock 'n roll power, an inspired moment.

Even Roger Chapman's distracting vibrato works beautifully and features a great lyric hinting at a theatrical sound Peter Gabriel would later perfect, Jim King's sax and John Whitney's organ taking a solo. Only if you're interested in a brief period of very good music that would soon be trumped but never replaced by the movement that became Progressive Rock. On the whole, a healthy session and of note in prog development.

Now, to come back on this "Family" album, I have to say that the peak of their creativity was definitely achieved on their good debut. This "Family Entertainment" sounds real shy in comparison. Chapman even leaving the leading vocals role at times.

So, what's left? The wonderful and inventive arrangements of the debut are past history. But these breaks are not really plenty on this album.

I know that it was very much in the style of these times, but a track as "Second Generation Woman" can't be of any interest to me: these Oriental moods are just average. Press next to avoid these useless sounds.

It is not because most prominent bands decided to investigated Eastern moods that everyone would succeed in this creative research. At the end of the day, I far much prefer them while they play their psychedelic rock from their debut. In this sense "From Past Archives" is way better than most of the songs that can be discovered on this album. I would even call it a highlight if the average quality of this work would have been better.

I really can't be very enthusiast about this one. No songs are outstanding nor even shining to tell the truth. When I listen to the poor "Processions", I just have one feeling: to press a certain key form my keyboard.

Yes, the "next" one. Even if this song holds diverse moods, its very much country style driven theme is totally alien to my ears. The average experience goes on with another country one. When "Face In The Cloud" starts, I have only one ambition: let's have it stopped as soon as possible. I just can't stand this awful country style atmosphere. I can hardly consider this album as a good one.

It seemed that this album was released to please the American audiences. This objective will never be achieved though. I can't rate this album with more than two stars. A truly eclectic band. He has a very raw voice and he would have made a great hard rock vocalist. This fact is very evident in the only hard rocking track on the album Second Generation Woman, which by the way is a bit out of place IMO. Most songs on the album are pretty good and a few are above average.

The eclectic approach to music reminds me a bit of another british band called Audience. The musicianship is one of the greatest assets on the album. Great violin and sax playing, but the rythm section also prove themselves throughout the album. The production is very polished compared to the raw debut. The jazzy sitar lead of "Face in the Cloud" and the even more prominent Eastern-flavored "Summer '67" somewhat date the affair, and are contrasted by the beautifully noir and trippy "How-Hi-the-Li" which may have been the impetus for Chicago 's "Wishing You Were Here" and the upbeat "Hung Up Down," sporting Grech 's unmistakable violin as it wafts over the rural and slightly surreal lyrics.

These sides are set against the edgy "Weaver's Answer," which immediately establishes a broader spectrum of styles, most notably given Chapman 's commanding if not slightly intimidating vocals. Interested parties should note that Family Entertainment and Music in a Doll's House were issued in a double-disc package featuring a commendable bit digital remastering rendering all other versions useless -- especially the early-'90s pressing on the German Line label.
