Review: Grand Funk Railroad – Mark, Don and Mel

Grand Funk Railroad – Mark, Don and Mel

What can one say besides this time they packaged the LP in a conforming square jacket rather than a silver coin?

This time Terry Knight put his hype on the back cover rather than on the inside.

This time the poster is two square inches larger than its predecessor.

This time it’s a double-album instead of a single album.

This time around we get reprints of rave reviews for the band in the form of album sleeves.

This time we get the song “Heartbreaker” for the third time within seven albums.

This time we get “Are You Ready” for the third time within the same span.

For that matter, this time, we get “Into the Sun”, “Mean Mistreater,” “T.N.U.C.” and “Inside Looking Out” for their third time around too.

Other than that, it’s the same thing. Shit.
