Features No. 1 Hit "The Loco-Motion" & Includes Bonus 3-D Glasses!
The original album was packaged in a cosmic 3-D sleeve that had a pair of 3-D glasses attached to the album jacket. Each Audio Fidelity Shinin' On SACD slip case includes a pair of 3-D glasses so the brilliant art work that we faithfully reproduced on front cover, back cover and center spread can be viewed as originally intended.
In 1973 Grand Funk were riding high off the success of the An American Band hit album and tour. For the band's next album, Shinin' On, Grand Funk retained the extraordinary Todd Rundgren as producer. The result is that Shinin' On is widely considered pure Grand Funk and belongs standing among other great hard rock albums. The songs are tight, the vocals are excellent and Don Brewer, Mark Farner, Mel Schacher and Craig Frost took the band to another level.
Shinin' On's best songs are the tracks that became the hit singles. The SACD opens with the dynamic title track augmented by Craig Frost's keyboard work and pumped-up behind Don Brewer's aggressive vocals the track infuses its hard-driving, spacy rock groove with some surprisingly ethereal vocal harmonies. The cover of the Carole King and Gerry Goffin penned "The Loco-Motion" turned that dance classic on its ear with a stomping beat and a screeching guitar lead from Mark Farner that shot the chuggin' pop remake straight to #1 on the Billboard singles chart and helped produce tremendous album sales.
