Peterson opted to pursue his own career and Prince absorbed most of the remaining members into The Revolution (with the exception of Johnson, who went on to join the Flyte Tyme music production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis). The band did, however perform a single concert and released a self-titled album. The album contains of eight tracks consisting of funk-jazz with two instrumentals and three ballads. A single was released for The Screams Of Passion, a modest hit which was re-released in 1996 on the Girl 6 soundtrack.
The album's crowning achievement, however was Nothing Compares 2 U, an emotional ballad very successfully covered five years later by Sinéad O'Connor. 2) Secondly it refers to an energetic 5 piece band from Southampton UK with a country/folk/blues sound to them. They released their debut single 'Falling For You' last year, which was received so well it sold out! "The Family sound unbelievably polished for an unsigned band, with deeply instrumental, layered tracks.... ‘Bow Legged Woman’ blends the sounds of Primal Scream, Oasis and Seventies rock’n’roll to perfection. To hear this live, with the husky vocals, raucous guitars, and Dylan inspired harmonica, must be brilliant....
It’s great to see some different music coming out of Southampton, aside from the usual copycat bands that we keep seeing.", Penny Lane, NME, November 2007 http://www.myspace.com/thefamilyonline 3) The third refers to: "Four brothers fusing their Blues, Country and Tropicalia roots into a joyful pshycedelic current. Founded in 2005, the Family has undergone multiple lineup changes, but they are finally the symbiotic collective they have always wanted. In July of 2007 they recorded their first full length album, entitled From Brasil to the Back Country." 4) The fourth refers to an Australian lo-fi electronica group active in Sydney during the 1990's and associated with clan-analogue. 5) An Australian Band who was from Melbourne who played heavy punk grunge type music who formed in 1993. They released 2 full length cd albums in the 1990s entitled "Bleeding in" and "Hatemail" 6) A mid 1960's garage band/sunshine pop group who released the Scott McKenzie-esque "San Francisco Waits" as a 45 in 1967.
