Grand Funk Railroad Release TRUNK OF FUNK VOLS 1 & 2 8TH SEPTEMBER 2017

3 August 2017 Music News Recommends




 Released  8TH SEPTEMBER 2017


There have been many Grand Funk Railroad compilations released over the years but these two sets put the albums in the well named Trunk of Funk and releases them in two bite sized chunks

 For Grand Funk fans looking to replace their vinyl with remastered CDs, these two Trunk of Funk boxes are a good way to start. Included are the group’s first four albums — their 1969 debut, On Time, and their 1970 trio of releases; Grand Funk, Closer to Home, and Live Album — plus previously unreleased tracks. The original Dave Tedds masters have been used and each box has an essay by Malcolm Dome as well as original album credits.(See below for full tracklisting)    

 Extremely popular during the 1970s, American rock band Grand Funk Railroad, sometimes known as Grand Funk, toured extensively and played to packed arenas worldwide. David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine once said, “You cannot talk about rock in the 1970s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad!”

 Although Grand Funk was to enjoy their biggest commercial success a few years down the line (1973’s We’re an American Band), it’s the group’s early era that is often considered its peak by the headbanging crowd. And it’s easy to understand why after hearing the Black Sabbath-esqueSin’s a Good Man’s Brother, the turbo-charged Are You Ready, and the drum solo showcase T.N.U.C.
