Family: An Advance Hearing of A Song For Me

Tony Norman, Top Pops, 24 January 1970

SOME WEEKS before Christmas I sat in on a Family recording session at the Olympic studios just south of the river. At that time new man John "Poli" Palmer was dubbing on vibes to a track that had already been recorded. Jim King had left while Family were working on the new album A Song For Me.
