This is about as raw and loud as it gets, and back in the day, Funk blew just about everyone away, including Zep. Probably one of the greatest hard rock albums of all time, and absolutely essential!

The item was as described, and arrived On Time! The CD and its case were undamaged from shipping. The CD is crisp and clean sounding. The Hard Rock sound of early Grand Funk sounds great remastered. I really enjoy listening to these heavy hitting hard rock songs. There are some extras that were added on to the original album, which a not bad, and a nice little extra. However the real draw is the original songs on the Red Album as it was called. If you like old Grand Funk''s hard rock style, and you have not heard this album,then do yourself a favor, and get this album. If you do not like Grand Funk''s old hard rock, load and heavy style songs, then this album will not be for you.

Having owned all the Grand Funk Railroad albums from "On Time" through "We''re An American Band" on every media available (LP,8 track, cassette and CD)and spending a lot of money on Japanese Imports re-issues and the like I have come to the conclusion (after comparison side by side) That the 2002 Remasters are by far the best sounding of the lot (barring a brand new original album). Finally Mel Schacher''s bass is out front with the rest of the band instead of muffled in the mix.
Yes they are a little hot, but hey we are talking about Grand Funk Railroad it was meant to be hot! I mean after all the original albums said "Too Be Played Loud" So ditch all the other crap and buy the 2002 Remasters on Capitol, you won''t regret it !!! Oh and why only "On Time - We''re An American Band" the boys (probably under pressure from the record label) started recording junk. Yeah there are some good songs on their later albums, but c''mon "The Locomotion" sucked. "Some Kind Of Wonderful" was a good cover but still the music was suffering.

This album was certainly a pinnacle of sorts for Grand Funk; it''s energetic, raw, &, perhaps, one of their more consistent albums. This power trio never got the respect they were due except for the generation that grew up with them. This was their second studio album & it peaked at #11 on the album charts. The only single from the album to chart was "Mr. Limousine Driver", it barely made the Top 100 peaking at #97.

The album opens with on of Grand Funk''s best songs, "Got This Thing on the Move", one of their best rockers with a driving bass line, the song fizzles a little toward the end but still great. "Please Don''t Worry" is only average. "High Falootin'' Woman" is all right, it''s typical Funk boogie rock. It;s hard to believe that "Mr. Limousine Driver" was released as a single, it''s easily the weakest song on the album. "In Need" is next & completely refocuses the album back to the opening potential of the first song. "In Need" is one of their very best songs & they really stretch it out. It features some more riffs from Schacter who never got the credit he deserved. Farner shines once again on harmonica which most people don''t talk about much, it might''ve been his strongest instrument. "Winter and My Soul" slows it down a little but isn''t a bad song. "Paranoid" opens with voices, an air raid siren & a baby crying before getting into the actual song. This was one of their better songs. The original album closed with the incredible "Inside - Lookin'' Out", arguably the best song in their repertoire. The Animals were the first to record this song; this is one of those few times that the cover version was an improvement.

The album has two bonus tracks: the demo version of "Nothing Is the Same" which would be on their next studio album & an extended version of "Mr. Limousine Driver". These are okay but there''s nothing revelatory. For Grand Funk fans this is one of the three albums to get, the other two being E Pluribus Funk & We''re an American Band. Grand Funk is so raw & powerful, it''s hard to ignore them. But if you listen carefully you can tell that they weren''t a tight group but, of course, bands in those days didn''t have much time to record. This album, along with just about all their contemporaries, was typically recorded in about a week. So mistakes, many times, were left in the final product. B ut that''s okay, too, they represented a lot of the views of young Americans at that time in history. They were a blue collar band & they worked long & hard in order to become successful. I still enjoy their music.

Some records stand the test of time; others don''t. Grand Funk''s Red Album passes with flying colors and a bass lick to the gut for good measure. This record, their second and finest, was recorded in only two days during October, 1969. It''s as live as a studio record can be. Indeed, on "In Need," you can hear Farner stop playing guitar, then start playing harmonica, then stop again before coming back in with his guitar The band is in a groove throughout. This is simple but powerful music.
Now, I''ve heard some critics talk about the band''s lack of proficiency on the instruments. No, Mark Farner wasn''t Eric Clapton. But then Grand Funk weren''t aristocracy. They were a blue-collar band from Flint, Michigan. More importantly, they played together well and their sound was good. Besides, Mel Schacher was a monster bass player.
I cannot say enough for the sound of this record. It reminds me so much of the sound of live rock bands from that era. Standing near their speakers you could feel the thunder of the bass and the crunch of the electric guitar. So it was not only an aural experience but a physical one too. The music hit you in the middle. That sort of sound seems to have been lost, either by technological development or by fashion I''m not sure. In any case, this recording captures that old sound well.
The new CD version of the red album also includes two bonus tracks. "Nothing is the Same" is labeled a "demo" but is sounds like a pretty fine song to me. Also a bonus is an extended version of "Mr. Limousine Driver".

...from my perspective, that is. I''m sure somebody will jump up and slice me into pieces for saying such blasphemy, since there exists some band out there that I don''t know about and had a similar style or something, but this album was way before my time, and I really don''t know much about what kind of music played back then, which I''m sure is the case for many who will read this review. Specifically speaking, the cover of The Animals'' "Inside Looking Out" is hands-down my favorite song on the album, which in my opinion is the best display of the guitarist''s style and best use of the lead singer''s voice and style. A real turnoff for me was the extended guitar solo in the song "In Need", with the man yelling in the background. I don''t know if there''s some story behind that or if the generation of that time was into that stuff, but it just felt dragged out and pointless, kind of like a Jimi Hendrix solo, except without the unbelievable talent of Hendrix that made his solos extraordinary to the very last note. The album as a whole is loud, energetic, but most importantly has a distinctly unique feel, a difficult feat for a rock and roll album like this. Recommended for anyone like myself that likes to dab around in classic rock music as a hobby, not really a must-buy, but definitely not a waste of money for anyone like myself.

"...Inside Looking Out..." - Grand Funk by GRAND FUNK RAILROAD (2002 Capitol Expanded CD Remaster)

With their debut "On Time" released only months earlier in August 1969 (a slow burner that eventually charted in October and rose to Number 27) - their second platter simply called "Grand Funk" followed only months later at the tail end of December 1969 - days away from the beginning of the new decade. Capitol Records saw their investment in Michigan''s finest deliver a Number 11 placing on the Rock LP charts - and hearing its heavier than lead-piping tunes in 2015 (a mere 45 years after the event) - it''s easy to hear why "Grand Funk" with its garish ''red'' cover was both lauded and derided in equal measure (much like the band itself really in certain quarters). But I''d argue if you want gutsy Hard Rockling American Rock `n'' Roll - then there''s a lot to love about GRAND FUNK RAILROAD. And featuring two rather excellent Bonus Tracks with sympathetic 24-bit Digital Remastering - this still-as-cheap-as-chips CD remaster is a fantastic way into this most American of Boogie bands. Here are the hard-hitting details... Released November 2002 - the CD Reissue/Remaster "Grand Funk" on Capitol 5393812 (Barcode 724353938123) breaks down as follows (59:46 minutes): 1. Got This Feeling On The Move 2. Please Don''t Worry 3. High Falootin'' Woman 4. Mr. Limousine Driver 5. In Need [Side 2] 6. Winter And My Soul 7. Paranoid 8. Inside Looking Out Tracks 1 to 8 are their 2nd album "Grand Funk" - released January 1970 in the USA on Capitol SW 406 and February 1970 in the UK on Capitol E-ST 307 BONUS TRACKS (both Previously Unreleased): 9. Nothing is The Same (Demo) 10. Mr. Limousine Driver (Extended Version) Track 9 (along with most of the album) was recorded on 20 October 1969 and is an early attempt at a song that would eventually surface on their 3rd LP "Closer To Home" in June of 1970. This early-take features a different arrangement and Don Brewer on vocals in the middle section. Track 10 is a 2002 Remix with Alternate Guitar and an Extended Ending The 12-page booklet is a rather visually pleasing affair - a centre-page spread of Ticket Stubs, Fillmore East Posters and Hand Flyers, uber rare Japanese 7" Single Picture Sleeves and even Studio Track Sheets. Beneath the see-through plastic tray is a picture of their 2nd-only British 45 for "Inside Looking Out" in its Capitol Records label bag. It was belatedly released in good old Blighty in January 1971 on Capitol CL 15668 with "Paranoid" as its B-side (I believe it played at 33 1/3 because of its lengthy playing time). The informative, witty and affectionate liner notes are by STEVE ROESER feature interviews with the band''s main men MARK FARNER (who wrote all the songs) and DON BREWER. GRAND FUNK RAILROAD were: MARK FARNER - Guitar, Piano, Harmonica & Vocals DON BREWER - Drums And Vocals MEL SCHACHER - Bass The CD remaster on all of their early albums was always going to be tricky - notoriously recorded with no sense of audiophile - but every sense of ''how it feels''. This is down ''n'' dirty American Rock with hiss levels that takes no prisoners. EVREN GOKNAR has 24-bit remastered from original tapes and while the hiss is still there - he''s given more muscle to the overall sound. These tracks come at you with renewed power - not dampened down - but allowed to breath. The all-over-the-place vocals are there - as are the guitar/drum combos - and keyboard interludes - but with more punch. It''s well done. It opens with the "baby let the good times roll" of "Got This Thing On The Move" - a funky groover with a huge Bass Line and fuzzed-up guitar. Things slink into Free territory with "Please Don''t Worry" with Brewer''s cymbals and drum kit way up in the mix. Capitol put out the double-boogie-commercial "High Falootin'' Woman" as the flip of the equally catchy "Mr. Limousine Driver" on Capitol 2691 in November 1969 - weeks before the album''s late December release (it scraped the Top 100 at Number 97). The audio on both tracks is wickedly good even if the solo guitar separation on "Mr. Limousine Driver" is pretty harsh. The near 8-minute "In Need" has always been a fave of mine sounding not unlike the Faces circa "Long Player" (dig that natty little Harmonica/Bass battle half way through followed by great grunge guitar). The Funksters get a bit Bluesy on "Winter And My Soul" - even if the vocals let the vocal down somewhat. Another near 8-minute chugger comes in the shape of "Paranoid" where our boys notice "men outside...come to take you away..." (and with the amount of drugs they were doing - that was probably true). It ends on the 10-minute monster "Inside Looking Out" which features the best vocal on the album. The Bonus Material may seem lean at only two cuts - but they''re both worth owning. "Nothing is The Same" is an early version of a track that would eventually surface on album No. 2 "Close To Home" in June 1970. Audio and structure-wise it feels pretty much the same as the album material - guitars harshly in the left while the drums and vocals linger on the right and centre. The extended "Mr. Limousine Driver" adds on another minute at 5:29 duration and sounds incredible - much cleaner and just as driving with that great guitar boogie in the left channel. That same guitar goes into wild soloing towards the run out... So there you have it. "Grand Funk" won''t be everyone''s cup of Darjeeling for damn sure but that''s the nature of ''awkward'' bands I always feel (Marmite really - love it or hate it). Derided by critics and beloved by fans in equal measure - Grand Funk Railroad were huge back in the day and on the evidence of this cool little reissue - it''s easy to hear why...

This is just great simple high energy early 70s hard rock. Great energy, no pretension, just three guys rocking their asses off. This remaster sounds awesome with a dirty grinding sound, particularly Mark Farmer''s guitar, which is cranked up loud and high in the mix. Mark''s Lou Gramm (Foreigner) tinged voice is fantastic throughout remaining soulful, suitably raucous and still melodic. Grand Funk were often considered America''s equivalent of the likes of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, indeed they toured with Sabbath and got kicked off a tour with Zep when they allegedly blew the headliners off stage. This great album is a fine example of early 70s heavy rock.
