Their first album went to #27 in 1969, thanks to hit tunes like Heartbreaker and Time Machine!

Let's be honest--is it ever fair to pan anyone's first album? Believe me, I've heard much worse debut albums than this one. Most bands are just trying to find their "sound" on their first album. I believe GFR discovered their sound from their very first rehearsals.

If there is anything to be criticised here, its only on the production side of things. When Rolling Stone magazine gave their first official scathing review of GFR's music, probably the only thing they got right was, "the drumming guaranteed to send you up the wall!" But that's only because on a lot of the songs here, the loudest thing you CAN hear is Don Brewer's drums. I read where Mark Farner complained that his guitar didn't come out loud enough on this album--which, when he switched on the fuzztone, as he did on "Anybody's Answer", "Can't Be Too Long" and toward the end of "Heartbreaker", could have easily rivaled that of Tony Iommi and Leslie West in terms of loudness, had only production levels been more in the "red". And Mel Schacher, the loudest bass player in the world--where was he? His bass can barely be heard on this album, as if it had hardly been plugged in at all! At any rate, manager/producer Terry Knight and engineer Ken Hamann turned things around sharply for the better on the next album, putting the guitar and bass out front, and the drums in it's rightful, lowly place in the back of the mix, and then putting all the levels in the "red"--hence, the "red" album.

But forget about production for a minute--how about the music. Let's take this one at a time. Rolling Stone called this album, "one-dimensional". Hardly! I've heard one-dimensional albums, and this is certainly not one. However, that's not to say that all "one-dimensional" albums are bad--Boston's debut is "one-dimensional".

This was THE GRAND FUNK RAILROAD in all their raw, nasty, sexual, high energy, Live sounding Power Trio madness. This is a Great debut Album and ranks out there with the great's of the 70s like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. This album was recorded live and one the only overdubs are putting some rhythm guitar where the leads are. It was recorded in one week and that shows, and yet adds to the charm of this sledge hammer album. 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. Don and Mark do great Harmonies and both are excellent lead singers. That magic gave GFR a special sound all to there own, It can't be faked or copied, its something natural to the three musicians. This album along with Live, Red Album (Grand Funk), and Closer To Home, captured millions of fans for GFR who still reminisce about these albums to this day. This edition of On Time is a 24 bit remastered masterpiece of rock n roll from cover to cover. Capitol They Hired David Tedds (A Huge GFR Fan) to head the project and he did a wonderful job. The remastering is wonderful the (Bong Rattling) bass of Mel Schacher is right in your face the whole set, Mark Farner's Guitar is crisp and clean Don Brewer's (competent) drums are clear as a bell and the (wild shirtless) Vocals of Mark and Don are all clear and fantastic. (Parentheses from Homer Simpson). The songs are; Are you ready, Anybody's Answer, Time Machine, High On A Horse, T.N.U.C., Into The Sun, Heartbreaker, Call Yourself A Man, Can't Be Too Long, Ups and Downs all rock and this CD includes new liner notes and Photo's as well as bonus tracks. The Bonus tracks are The original versions of Heartbreaker and High On A Horse, both are very cool. This is a must have CD for every GFR fan and Every fan of Hard Rock.

GFR's first release goes to show you that sometimes music critics don't know jack about music! This is a good debut filled with power and passion that many other rock bands could only dream of doing after even ten albums! Anyway rock was never supposed to be pretty and clean but raw and dirty and GFR delivers with On Time. So go back to a time when rock was revolutionary and artist still had passion for their music and get this CD before your rock n' roll tastes are contaminated from the crap that is coming out today. Play it loud baby!

In the spring of 1969, mankind was thrice blessed by rock and roll: Led Zeppelin cut their first album, the Beatles released their magnificent and breathtaking swan song "Abbey Road" (one of the greatest things ever recorded), and in Flint, Michigan, a band formerly known as Terry Knight and the Pack signed a contract with Capitol Records and released their first album under their new name: Grand Funk Railroad. The album was "On Time," a tour-de-force of hard rock, blues, and soul. I really don't know what else I could say about this album that would begin to do it justice, but I will try.
-People accuse Grand Funk Railroad of being a shallow group. I defend them by saying that as far as 1969 was concerned, this music was heavy, a heaviness only rivaled by British groups like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Mark Farner's guitar is many different voices: one moment it sings, the next moment it cries, the next in shouts in anger or joy (sometimes both). Critics seem to forget that Farner was playing both the lead and rhythm guitars on this album, which meant that he had to lay down tracks which were then overdubbed when the whole band played together. The overdubbing on this album is outstanding, especially when Farner also plays the piano and harmonica on Side 1.
-As far as Grand Funk Railroad albums go, the musical diversity is pretty damn good. Some songs have a splash of funk and R&B (Call Yourself a Man), others are classic twelve bar blues with a kick (Time Machine), others put a hard rock spin on meaningful folk lyrics (Anybody's Answer, Can't Be Too Long).
