The Family is a 1985 album released on Prince's Paisley Park Records label by the band of the same name. The album consists of eight Minneapolis sound tracks but with a funk-jazz slant. Two of the tracks are instrumentals, and three are ballads; many feature string arrangements by Clare Fischer, marking the beginning of Prince's longstanding association with the Michigan-born composer-arranger

We Are Family is the third studio album by the American R&B vocal group Sister Sledge, released on January 22, 1979 in the United States and on April 30, 1979 in the United Kingdom by Cotillion Records.

But the urban contemporary and pop markets can be incredibly fickle, and this self-titled debut album by the Family wasn't the blockbuster some folks predicted it would be. Not surprisingly, this release is about as as it gets, and the heavy Prince/Time influence is undeniable. The Family isn't among the true classics that came from Minneapolis in the 1980s; it isn't in a class with Prince's Purple Rain, the Time's Ice Cream Castles, or Sheila E's The Glamorous Life, but it's competent and generally decent

The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album (ISBN 0-06-096582-7) is a book, written by Matt Groening, that mimics a family album that the Simpsons television family would have. Among the things it reveals is the birth date of Bart Simpson, as well as the family trees of the Bouvier (Marge Simpson's ancestors) and Simpson families. Despite the fact that these family trees have never been directly contradicted in the show their canonicity is still unknown.

The Manson Family Album was intended to be Marilyn Manson's first studio album and is a precursor to Portrait of an American Family. It is comprised of the original takes and alternate mixes of songs that would later be found on the band's debut and due to the many differences between it and its final form, it can be considered an album unto itself. Initially, Manson sought out Roli Mosimann to produce the album and with him the band recorded an album's worth of material

Title: The Family Album (1988). Berliner arranges these clips, sound and vision so they follow life from infancy to old age, the soundtrack tantalizingly close to fitting the images, but never quite fully matching up, since, in reality one had nothing to do with the other.

I'm currently working on a project, reconstructing lossless versions of the compilations that came out in Australia during the 70s 80s and early 90s. I'm currenly working on one of the comps that came out in late 1985, where I need the Family's "Screams of passion". No problem. Pulled out my copy of this album and to my horror, the entire CD is an mp3 transcode from 96k mp3s. Thought the sound of the disc sounded like dogs droppings, hense why I never played it much. Cat number on both the CD and case are 7599 25322-2, but have come to realise the two (very small but subtle give aways are:a:) in the 1980s and 1990s, all warner CDs had the artist name written in CQ full stretch font, my copy has Arial Black and...b:) where the bottom of the actual disc denotes made in W. Germany, my copy just notes Made in Germany.

Skunk Black
note: if the Paisley Park logo is missing on the disc, you deal with the unofficial replica: The Family (2) - The Family ...

COLLECTORS: Beware of counterfeits. This album was originally available in very limited qualities on compact disc and notoriously hard to find (on cd) until recently. In addition to advice given below. All genuine Germany /Europe pressings come enclosed in the thick old school jewel case with the pink promotion hype sticker 'Nothing compares 2 U'. As shown in the images for this release. Without this sticker I wouldn't bother as it's less collectible and theres a good chance it's counterfeit. If unsure your better off searching for the Japan edition with the OBI. Know your music! - passion4realmusic

Warning!!!!! There are counterfeits of this album now floating about. CD artwork is not the same, sleeve art is duplicated and the audio has digital clipping at the end of each track.

Astro cat - the person who wrote the notes is incorrect - Japanese version has same tracklisting as eu version but different format of back cover and extra page insertCheets

Er, i have a copy of the japanese print and it does not contain "The Screams Of Passion (Extended Mix)"...!
