Local band of two brothers and two sisters doing amateur CSN/America '70s folkrock with a humble
vibe. Some people seem to rate this highly but I found it disappointing, with a insipid, spineless feel. "She's Gone" and "Sitting By The Ocean" are usually rated as the best tracks, but even those didn't strike me as terribly interesting. My personal reservations aside, this is a rare album that has sold for good $$$ and should have been in the Acid Archives 2nd Edition book, but was omitted due to a printing error. It's housed in the same generic cover as the Asylum LP.

Family Times Band consisted of two brothers and two sisters who hailed from Newport News, Virginia and originally released this their sole album in 1976 as a private press.
This album runs the gamut from killer hypnotic acid folk psych "Sitting By The Ocean" to West Coast psychy folk rock "She's Gone", 3rd Velvets/Hackamore Brick sounds "All I Need", to fuzzed out rockers "Cause You Know". Overall it comes across as being very much a mixture of the Seventh Dawn "Sunrise" LP and the Art Of Lovin'. And despite the 1976 release date, this album is much more in keeping with 1969-70 sensibilities. Lead vocalist Don Leitzke sounds very much like Mandrake Memorial's Michael Kac.

Instrumental lineup is drums, bass, electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards (piano, organ), male and female vocals. Lead vocals are chielfy male, with female harmonies...
