The band, Family, is certainly one of the Best Bands You’ve Never Heard In Your Life. They formed in England in 1967 and consisted of the late Ric Grech on bass, who would later join the supergroup Blind Faith.

With a few personnel changes through the years, Family went on recording great albums until 1973. The song I’ve got for you right now is from Family’s first album from 1968 titled Music In A Doll’s House, and was produced by Dave Mason of Traffic fame. It is also notable that the Beatles were recording what became their self-titled album, better know as the White Album, during 1968 and were originally intending to call the album A Doll’s House, but changed it after the release of Family’s Music In A Doll’s House was released in the summer of ’68.
