Grand Funk Railroad

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Grand Funk Railroad - We’re An American Band We’re An American Band
Pop Audiophile - LP 21692 EMI
Sealed 1999 Limited Edition 180gm HQ. This Classic Grand Funk Is Pressed On Yellow Virgin Vinyl And Includes The Original Stickers And Gold Foil Gatefold Sleeve. There Is No Wear On The Foil Jacket-It's Just The Way Our Scanner Renders It. “Having Made Several Changes In Their Business And Musical Efforts In 1972, Grand Funk Railroad Made Even More Extensive Ones In 1973, Beginning With Their Name, Which Was Officially Truncated To "Grand Funk." And Keyboardist Craig Frost, Credited As A Sideman On Phoenix, The Previous Album, Was Now A Full-Fledged Bandmember, Filling Out The Musical Arrangements. The Most Notable Change, However, Came With The Hiring Of Todd Rundgren To Produce The Band's Eighth Album. Rundgren, A Pop/Rock Artist In His Own Right, Was Also Known For His Producing Abilities, And He Gave Grand Funk Exactly What They Were Looking For: We're An American Band Sounded Nothing Like Its Muddy, Plodding Predecessors. Sonically, The Record Was Sharp And Detailed And The Band's Playing Was Far Tighter And More Accomplished. Most Important, Someone, Whether The Band Or Rundgren, Decided That Gruff-Voiced Drummer Don Brewer Should Be Employed As A Lead Singer As Often As Guitarist Mark Farner. Brewer Also Contributed More As A Songwriter, And The Results Were Immediate. The Album's Title Song, An Autobiographical Account Of Life On The Road Written And Sung By Brewer, Was Released In Advance Of The Album And Became A Gold-Selling Number One Hit, Grand Funk's First Really Successful Single. Despite The Band's Previous Popularity, For Many, It Must Have Been The First Grand Funk Record They Either Heard Or Bought. Elsewhere On The Album, Farner Contributed His Usual Wailing Vocals And Guitar, Singing Of His Heartfelt, If Simpleminded, Political Concerns. But We're An American Band Really Belonged To Brewer And Rundgren, And Its Success Constituted A Redefinition Of Grand Funk That Came Just In Time.” William Ruhlmann, AMG.... more details

Grand Funk Railroad - Grand Funk Grand Funk
Pop New - LP SKAO 406 Capitol
Sealed 1970 Gatefold Original. "Their Second (Album) For Capitol, Is Characteristic Of The Classic Rock Radio Sound That Would Permeate The Airwaves Of The Late 20th Century. Grand Funk Railroad Was A Seminal Force In Giving The Friendlier Side Of The Heavy-Rock Sound Its Charm And Making It Stick. Built On Fuzzed-Out Blues Riffs, Simple Lyrics, And At Times Seemingly Unnecessary Jamming, Grand Funk's Songs Are Mild In Nature. Far Less Extreme Than Black Sabbath, But Slightly Toothier Than Fogaht Or Bad Company, Grand Funk's Major Influence Is From The Loose, Blues-Based Power Trio Formula Of Bands Such As Cream And The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Grand Funk Combines Rawness With Radio-Friendly Melodies And Vocal Harmonies That Would Become Their Trademark Sound. Hordes Of Bands To Come, From Foreigner To Bon Jovi, Would Emulate Grand Funk's Sound And Style, Focusing On Good-Time Rocking Material While Attempting A Few Token Social Commentary Pieces. This Is A Good Album As Far As Early Hard Rock Goes, And As Grand Funk Railroad Would Move Farther And Farther Away From The Type Of Roughness And Loose Arrangements Found Here, It Is Well Worth Picking Up As An Example Of One Of Their Early Efforts."

Grand Funk Railroad - Good Singin' Good Playin' Good Singin' Good Playin'
Pop New - LP 2216 MCA
Sealed 1976 Embossed Cover Original, Cut Out Hole. “After The Surprisingly Dark And Subdued Born To Die, Grand Funk Railroad's Original Lineup Rallied To Record One More Album In 1976. Also Onboard Was An Unlikely Choice Of Producer, Avant-Garde Rock King Frank Zappa. As Odd As This Marriage May Seem, The End Result Is One Of The Best Albums In The Grand Funk Railroad Canon. Zappa's Production Forsakes The High-Gloss Style That Dominated The Rest Of Their Mid-'70s Output, Instead Opting For A Live-In-The-Studio Approach With Minimal Overdubs. This Style Works Well, Allowing The Group To Funnel The Solid Song Craft They Had Developed During Their Hit Making Years Into A Loose, Energetic Soundscape That Harkens Back To The Finest Moments Of Their Early Power-Trio Output. Indeed, Songs Like "Can You Do It" And "Out To Get You" (Featuring A Guest Guitar Solo From Zappa) Crackle With The Kind Of Hard Rock Energy That Had Been Lost On All The Girls In The World Beware And Born To Die. However, The Songs Do Not Get Buried Under The Power-Trio Theatrics: "Just Couldn't Wait" Is A Dynamic Fusion Of Pop Hooks And Rock Firepower That Highlights The Group's Oft-Underrated Harmonies And "Release Your Love" Injects Catchy Singalong Choruses To A Country-Inflected Slice Of Rock. Another Highlight Is "Miss My Baby," An Anguished, Epic Power Ballad That Shows Off The Group's Sound At Its Most Subtle And Atmospheric. To Sum Up, Good Singin' Good Playin' Is An Album That Will Please The Group's Fans And May Even Win Over Other Classic Rock Enthusiasts With Its Combination Of Well-Crafted Songs And Gutsy, No-Frills Production.” Donald A.
