5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 2 or 3 blues-based rock trio albums! April 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I put this album right alongside "Disreali Gears" and "Are You Experienced". A tight, unified sound from start to finish - never mind that there weren't any radio hits on it. At that time and place, radio hits were beside the point. The music was rapidly evolving, and the power-trio format was the cutting edge of that evolution. Not as frenetic and competitive as Cream, and with a MUCH better rhythm section than the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Grand Funk Railroad was at the top of their game on this one! Led Zeppelin would take the power-trio format, add a great lead singer, and dominate the sound of the next decade. If you're into power-trios, you should DEFINITELY have this album. If you want to hear the very SOUL of Grand Funk Railroad, buy this one FIRST! You can pick up the "hits" any time, but this one is a jewel from start to finish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Alert! February 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
About "Grand Funk" (AKA: "The Red Album"):

Vintage Grand Funk Railroad sound! This record is what defined the Grand Funk Railroad power-sound. ALL of their other records are compared to this release. It gave early heavy metal fans what they wanted. It gave people into funk and soul what they wanted. It gave the politically astute what they wanted. It satisfies the nihilists. There were elements the bubblegum squad could latch on to. It was a huge sound without the haughty, "Creamish" air attached. Simple, but very, very effective! This is the core sound--devoid of any cliché slickness that is duck taped to all-too-many rock recordings. However, GFR didn't seem to strive to achieve this sound; it simply WAS their sound! Everything sounds natural and unpretentious. Mel Schacher says on the liner notes, "I liked the RED ALBUM the best, because I think it represented what Grand Funk was really all about, musically."

About the "Grand Funk Remasters":

First of all, what took so freakin' long to release these records in this format? Why do we have to listen to crappy sounding CDs in this day and age? As Nathan (William Snape) says in "The Full Monty" during one his dad's (Robert Carlyle) clumsy dance rehearsals--"that were crap!" Even the Beatles catalog is taking forever to get released on quality CDs! ("The Capital Albums Vol. 1") Oh well, better late than never, I guess! I just have one last thing to say to the record companies, et al involved concerning this faux pas; guess which finger I'm holding up!

There's a world of difference between the sound of these CDs and the sterile sounding earlier digital releases of the same material; that fact alone justifies buying the remasters. However, the bonus music on these CDs makes them a must-buy for anyone who likes Grand Funk.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Hard Rock Album of All Time. August 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
RED ALBUM was THE GRAND FUNK RAILROAD in all their raw, nasty, sexual, high energy, Live sounding Power Trio madness. This is a Great second Album surpassing there great debut On Time, and helps rank GFR with the Great's of the 70s like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. This album was recorded live and the only overdubs are putting some rhythm guitar where the leads are (al of GFRs Terry Knight Produced were done the same way, as fast as possible and No Frills). Like On Time its a sledge hammer album, but even heavier with the smash songs that GFR used live such as In Need, Inside Looking Out and Paranoid. Red Album which is what we GFR fanatics call Grand Funk, also has the radio friendly songs Mr. Limousine Driver, Please Don't worry, and High Falottin Women. As well as the Sledge hammer rocker Got This Thing On The Move. This was what GFR was all about, Mel Schacher Playing his BOOMING BASS behind the note. Don Brewer Playing his POUNDING DRUMS ahead of the Note and Mark Farner playing his wild rhythms and screeching leads on GUITAR anywhere; before, after, or in the middle of the note. Or to be more accurate Don playing at the beginning of the note, Mel playing at the end of the note and Mark going wherever he wants with his wild rhythms. This sound made GFR something unique and special and gave them a driven sound that made you feel like your moving. Don and Mark do great Harmonies and both are excellent lead singers as well. Red Album is a special album every hard rock fan should have in there collection. GFRs sound can't be faked or copied, its something natural to the three musicians. This album along with Live, On Time, and Closer To Home, captured millions of fans for GFR who still reminisce about these albums to this day. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! September 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
It seems like ever since I first got a CD player, I've been waiting for the EARLY Grand Funk albums to be released. Unlike a lot of bands whose albums were at least available, albeit not remastered, most of the GFR catalog has been strangely absent from the CD racks for years - until now. People tend to think of "We're an American Band" or, God forbid, "The Locomotion" when they think of the Funk, but what they often overlook is how powerful, raw and loud these guys were in the early days. And this, "THE RED ALBUM", is their masterpiece. Capital has done a great job on the remastered sound, with Mel Schacher's booming, heavy bass right up front right where it belongs. These guys were crankin' when this type of sound was critically lambasted - alongside Sabbath, the early pioneering metal of Grand Funk was looked upon as being talentless noise by the critics. We all know now that it was simply a precursor to heavy-metal in general and the Seattle grunge sound in particular. This, along with their first album, "On Time", are testaments to one of the loudest, heaviest bands in existence.

A very good sound and great group. When there wasn't MTV to push the same sound and MBA's did look for what was popular. Distinct group and sound. You'll never find it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Grand Funk.
Grand Funk was not the most talented band in the world. You'll either love or hate this rather simple CD. For me, it brought back memories of my college days.
