Grand Funk Railroad (Mark Farner, Don Brewer and Mel Schacher) broke out big in the late sixties with a huge rock sound that emulated the hard working sounds of the town they grew up in, forever making Flint, Michigan a familiar name to millions. From the release of their very first album "Grand Funk" and over a career that spans decades of many hit recordings, GFR has truly stood the test of time.
With multiple gold and platinum albums under their belt, and historic sold out shows like Shea Stadium, the brass at Capitol Records in 1972 honored this power trio with their first greatest hits collection the gold and platinum "Mark, Don & Mel."
The album was a blockbuster as it reached the upper rungs of the sales charts, making this a smash hit with both rock and pop audiences, proving once again their career was of historic merit. Filled with multiple hits spread out over 4 big sides, the amazing album takes off with the classic “Time Machine” plus more power rockers like “Into The Sun” “Inside Looking Out” and “Heartbreaker”
