Family - Complete BBC Sessions (1968-73)

Good idea to have requested this compilation of all the BBC sessions recorded by this weird and singular band during it's existence. The format is MP3 for all the songs now (no more ogg). The compilation is uploaded in the same rar file. Rather heavy file but better to dl. Catch it here.

Some years ago, sessions (live or in studio) recorded by Family during their "career" were at last issued in 3 volumes (1968-69, 1970 and 1971-73). Quite expensive and a little arbitrarily released in 3 different CDs, it was a fine way to listen to the entirety of what the band has done for this radio. Rather uneven, there are some gems that deserved to be available. Another strange point one of this CD (the 1971-73) has been rather hard to find lately. Of course the band changed so much during these 5 years that it's a travel across styles. Here all these recordings are gathered in 3 volumes too (mf doesn't allow me to dl them in one file only). The last one must be read by VLC (ogg format).

Ditto, this is a big deal for me, and most importantly is going to result in me getting off the proverbial pot and buying some of their product. I've been confused about whether early or mid-period is the way to go. Thanks a million, I love this internet weblog (aka "blog.")

Many thanks - all good stuff, but IMO the first coiuyple of albums are best.There's a super box set / book thingy with them in + first single.
I'd not heard some of the other oddments, so that was nice.
Final album includes pics from 2nd disc, not the third ...minor quibble!
Thanks again, Sir Echo

I love this band! But it is hard to find some albums on web!
Any chance to post Family - Old Songs New Songs (Boxset 5CD) and these compilations from them :A Family Selection (2000),In Their Own Time (2005)and Strange Band : The Best Of (2010).It is very difficult to complete the discography of this great band.
Many many thanks,
Rochacrimson

I'm not able to DL these files unfortunately. When I try it says that the file is no longer stored on Mediafire. Has the bird flown?

There's some great stuff on this site. Thanks.

Hello, You are right about rs. If possible,could you use someone else,eg zippy as I am trying to dl part 3 and it's showing 2 hours to dl this part.I will give up and come back in a few days. Great post though and there can never be enough Family. thanks. zeets

Thanks for this, but the first and second links give "File Not Found", and the third one seems extremely slow.

dkelvin said...

Dear visitors. Things are getting worrying wth rs. They changed the url of many links for a reason I ignore and moreover the dl speed for non-rs paying users is miserable so it can takes 2 to 3 hours to catch. I don't think I'll have the courage and patience to re-up on another server, most of them deleting your files without any preliminary announce when there's a complaint. So I'm afraid this blog will slowly die and its links will become less and less available. The usual sad ending of any creation on the net. Sorry

Links 1 and 2 are working now - thanks.

Hello,
I messaged the other day about the slowness of rs,but i appear to have been wrong as today the speed is good and I was able to catch all three links in about 15 mins. Thank you for sharing and it is appreciated.regards zeets

Perhaps try Zippyshare, BillionUploads or 180? They all seem to work OK. The recent Mega [https://mega.co.nz] seems to be working well for many people at other sites, too. Just a suggestion.....

dkelvin said...

Cool if the speed is better with rs. I had tried 2 days ago and it took eternity too.
Trying another site wouldn't be a problem if it didn't mean to have the courage and energy to re-upload everything. And I won't have. Moreover, most of these sites delete your files if they have not been dl for about a month (didn't check all sites but it seems the rule). So it would be totally a waste of time to re-up everything and sees files removed one after another one.
