Family's third album came out at a difficult time for the band. Founding member Ric Grech had left to join the short-lived Blind Faith immediately after recording Family's ENTERTAINMENT. A disastrous U.S. tour for Family ended in a fistfight between singer Roger Chapman and promoter Bill Graham, with the former losing his visa. In light of such circumstances, A SONG FOR ME was barely promoted in America--a country in which Family desperately needed to gain a foothold.
It's unfortunate, as the album is filled with all the things that make the band so engaging and unique. Chapman and Whitney's songs create beautiful and charged settings, full of inventive instrumentation (vibes, piano, and flute player John "Poli" Palmer had joined the Family). Chapman's singing--sandpaper rough and hopped up on vibrato--is the perfect foil for these settings.
