I first heard Grand Funk in the back seat of a '57 Chevy goin' up M-24 in late September of '69...."PARANOID" was the first tune to hit my ears (and made them BLEED), and I've been a DIEHARD GrandFunkFanatic ever since that day. I've heard about every GFR tune ever done, own every CD there is, 8 track, cassette, LP, you name it- I've either had it or own it presently and play the hell out of it, still.
Well, my FunkChildren, it's time to put the old records/CDs/tapes away; seal 'em up and save 'em for posterity; there's plenty of reason to do that, and it starts with the brand-new TRUNK OF FUNK, and the first four CDs of the NEWLY REMASTERED (in 24 BIT, no less) GRAND FUNK RAILROAD CATALOG!!
"ON TIME", "GRAND FUNK", "CLOSER TO HOME" and "LIVE ALBUM" are all there in the best sense of every note, phrase, lick, lyric, kick drum, bass run up the scales and cymbal crash- OH, BABY- if you're a diehard GFR fan, like me (and a few dozen other of my pals from around the world), your ears are gonna MELT and BLEED before you're done with these CDs.
You'll smile ear to ear all the while, too.
"ON TIME", the first release from GFR in '69, is just AWESOME from start to finish; the separation of the individual instruments, the definition, clarity and the BASS WHOMP!! that Mel Schacher hit us all with that got the world's attention is all there, PLUS sonic enhancements- you'll swear that this may be the first time you ever listened to this album like this, you can't help ROCKS. This may be one of the greatest BLUES/ROCK albums ever made, but because of Terry ("I'm not a producer") Knight's incompetency behind a mixer, nobody ever knew it before now....take a listen and you'll hear what I mean.

Format: Audio CD
The Trunk Of Funk look's like an old leather trunk and includes the first 4 reissues ON TIME, GRAND FUNK (what we FUNKnatics Call RED ALBUM), CLOSER TO HOME and LIVE ALBUM-all 24 Bit Digitally Remasterred with Bonus tracks and new Liner notes-already inside and space to hold another 8 classic GFR reissues that are to be released over the 7 or 8 months. Each box is a LIMITED EDITION and each is individually numbered 10,000 copies will be manufactured worldwide. Each box also includes a sticker, a pic and some Shinin On 3D glasses. This is a must have for any BIG Grand Funk Fan.
This box set inclde GFRs first 4 album's from their power trio days. All four of these CDs are 24 bit digitially remasterred and are masterpiece's of rock n roll from cover to cover. Capitol 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).
ON TIME is a Great debut Album and ranks out there with the greats of the 70s. 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.
RED ALBUM 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 as well as the radio friendly songs Mr.

This album is a great buy considering the four CD's and other knick knacks which are included.
Grand Funk Railroad's first album, On Time was recorded on 8-Track in June of 1969, just one month before their performance at the Atlanta Pop Festival. Capitol records signed them on the spot after the show and the On Time album was officially released in Sept of 1969. The album includes standards such as Are you ready, T.N.U.C, Into the sun and Heartbreaker, which are songs that Grand Funk played many times live during their career. Other classic GFR tunes are Anybody's Answer, Time Machine, High on a horse, Call yourself a man, Can't be too long and Ups and downs. This was a great debut album for the power trio from Flint, Mi and it sounds much better now since it's been re-mastered.
The second album by GFR was simply called Grand Funk. It's red cover with live pics of Mark, Don and Mel became known as the Grand Funk (Red Album) by their fans. This album was a better recording then On Time and featured Grand Funk in their most raw state. Their hard grinding blues resonated a feeling that was very down to earth and realistic. The band spent a total of three days to record this album and did little overdubbing on it. Many of the songs on the Red Album can be considered as vehicles for their concerts, because after all Grand Funk was best known as a live band. Songs such as In Need, Paranoid and GFR's version of Inside looking out were concert favorites. The album starts off on a bang with, Got this thing on the move. A great jam tune that features Mark's fuzz tone Messenger guitar right in your face, along with Don's hard driving drumming and Mel's great bass work, all working together in unison. The album also includes the songs, Please don't worry, High Falootin woman, Mr.
