Limited Edition 180g Vinyl Double LP!
Impeccably Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso From Capitol Records Tapes!


Grand Funk Railroad (Mark Farner, Don Brewer and Mel Schacher) broke out big in the late sixties with a huge rock sound that emulated the hard working sounds of the town they grew up in, forever making Flint, Michigan a familiar name to millions. From the release of their very first album "Grand Funk" and over a career that spans decades of many hit recordings, GFR has truly stood the test of time.

With multiple gold and platinum albums under their belt, and historic sold out shows like Shea Stadium, the brass at Capitol Records in 1972 honored this power trio with their first greatest hits collection the gold and platinum "Mark, Don & Mel."

The album was a blockbuster as it reached the upper rungs of the sales charts, making this a smash hit with both rock and pop audiences, proving once again their career was of historic merit. Filled with multiple hits spread out over 4 big sides, the amazing album takes off with the classic “Time Machine” plus more power rockers like “Into The Sun” “Inside Looking Out” and “Heartbreaker”.

More gold and platinum treasures follow with rock belters like “Are You Ready” “Mean Mistreater” "Footstompin’ Music" and a stellar interpretation of the Dave Mason classic "Feelin Alright” which all truly represent the great sounds of this mega recording act.

More greatest hits follow as the LP features a nice helping of solid smashes like the huge progressive rock hit “I’m Your Captain (Closer To Home)" "Loneliness” and probably one of the more incredible live tracks of all time “T.N.U.C." In total, the album showcases twelve important Grand Funk Railroad recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time.

In honor of the Band, the Music and the Legends, Friday Music is very pleased to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Capitol Records classic "Mark, Don & Mel” by Grand Funk Railroad as another fine installment in the exciting Grand Funk Railroad 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series.
