In 1971, Grand Funk Railroad were the pinnacle of American Rock ‘n Roll, selling out arenas of ecstatic fans all over the United States. This no-nonsense band from Michigan defined the sound of early working class Hard Rock groups with their over-the-top sound, Mark Farner’s heavy riffing, hard-hitting bass lines of Mel Schacher and intricate funky drums of Don Brewer.
The Live: The 1971 Tour recordings were made during ecstatic performances in Chicago, Detroit and New York’s Shea Stadium. Highlights include the 15-minute Animals cover “Inside Looking Out”, taking up the whole C-side, a blistering cover of The Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” and the Grand Funk classic “Footstompin’ Music”.
