The Copper Family's involvement with music goes back much further than the visit by Le. Bob and Ron collaborated on a second album for the English Folk Dance & Song Society. Following Ron's death in 1979, Copper continued to perform and record with his son, John, and daughter, Jill. A four-CD box set of the Copper Family's recordings was released by Leader. Copper's memoirs, A Song for Every Season, was published in 1971. Thirty years later, he received a lifetime achievement award from BBC Radio 2. A group of Bob's grandchildren has also performed as the Young Coppers.

The Copper Family are a family of singers of traditional, unaccompanied English folk song. Originally from Rottingdean, near Brighton, Sussex, England, the nucleus of the family now live in the neighbouring village of Peacehaven  . Bob wrote several books about the family and its songs, beginning with the widely acclaimed A Song For Every Season in 1971. The accompanying 4-LP set (now a collector's item) found Bob and Ron singing alongside Bob's daughter Jill and son John, bringing a further generation into the family tradition. The death of Ron was followed by the introduction of Jill's husband Jon into the core line-up, and some of Bob's grandchildren began to appear with the group.

For some unusual reason, Foobar shows the same album art cover for 99% of my songs. I'm guessing this is an indicator that Foobar is grabbing the covers, but for whatever reason, it doesn't show them. In fact, it used to be far worse.

On this song from its classic 1971 album "The Wall," Pink Floyd asks, "Mother, do you think they'll like this song?" They certainly did. LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out". While we're pretty sure Mama wouldn't approve of violence or forgetting to take out the garbage, she's bound to appreciate an LL classic that samples James Brown and Sly and the Family Stone. John Lennon's song "Mother" is actually a song written for both his parents - his father left when Lennon was only an infant, and his mother was killed in a car crash when he was 17. Boyz II Men's "A Song for Mama". A staple of any Mother's Day playlist, this Boyz II Men ballad is about a family held together by a mother's traditions. Elvis Presley's "Mama Liked The Roses"

Box set including 16 page black & white booklet. Discs are numbered individually as LEA 4046, 4047, 4048 & 4049.

The original release of this 4LP set (also blue labels with silver text) was housed in a thin cardboard wallet-style cover: The Copper Family* - A Song For Every Season which was very prone to tearing and therefore rapidly replaced by this version's more durable hard cardboard box.

The top right hand corner of the back cover reads: "Leader LEAB 404 stereo" above "With booklet".
On back of cover and booklet: "Leader Sound Ltd, 5 North Villas, London, N.W.1."
LEA 4046 has typo on labels: "Pater Beer Night" should be "Tater Beer Night".
Box has green text on spine.

The Recordings were made at the home of Bob Copper, Peacehaven, Sussex.

Mastered at E.M.I.
