Family Of Swede hail from Oakland, California and were originally formed at whilst in High School in the mid 1960s. They were originally known as The Epics and released one single ‘We Are Made As One’ on Bridge Town Records. It was during the 1970s that the band decided to change their name to Family Of Swede because the leader of the group was Swede McDaniel. Under the name of Family Of Swede the released one single on Butter Fields with the uptempo ‘Everybody Must Pay’ and the ballad ‘I Got To Move On’. They band had recorded an album called ‘Family Album’ during this period but it was never released at the time, until now that is. We’ve also included on the label some later recordings from the early 80s with different takes of ‘Sad Lonely Feeling’, ‘Living From Day To Day’ and ‘Set You Free.’ The CD version comes with the monumental full length 11 minute 50 seconds version of ‘Set You Free,’ which has been supported by Gilles Peterson on his BBC radio show. ‘Family Album’ is a collection of beautiful and timeless songs which should now deserve the acclaim that they deserve.
