Fearless Family cd
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.
 
Fearless, from 1971, is Family's most critically respected album and an enduring fan favourite.
 
The first album to feature a pre-King Crimson John Wetton (on bass and backing vocals), Fearless offered a wildly inventive fusion of Art Rock, Folk and Blues influences, and included such classics as Between Blue And Me and Sat'd'y Barfly.
 
Available as a re-mastered double disc edition packaged in a deluxe hard-back book, Fearless is the second in the Madfish label Family reissue series. The bonus disc features the A and B side of the band's most successful single, In My Own Time.
 
The 16 page booklet includes new sleeve notes by Family expert Pete Feenstra, along with period press cuttings and memorabilia supplied by Dave Eames ND Trevor Gardiner (including the original ad promoting the album in the UK press).
