  Family (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Family were an English Progressive rock band comprising Roger Chapman on vocals, John "Charlie" Whitney on guitar, Jim King on sax, harmonica, vocals and tin whistle, Ric Grech on bass, violin and vocals and Rob Townsend on drums.
Family formed in 1966 in Leicester in the Midlands, England, although the basis for the band had actually been in existence since 1962 when they were known as The Farinas and subsequently The Roaring Sixties.
In mid-1972 Wetton left Family to join the newly re-formed King Crimson and was replaced by bassist Jim Cregan, and at the end of this year Poli Palmer also left the band and was replaced by keyboardist Tony Ashton, formerly of Ashton, Gardner and Dyke.

One wonders how this band scraped up the cash to afford the big orchestra which plays on most of the album for their first release, but the fact that they never made anything else should be a hint.
