We're An American Band
Label: Capitol Records
Produced by Todd Rundgren, this seventh album from Grand Funk is heavy on the soulfulness, fat guitars and mixture of hard rock and funk that they are known for. A critical and commercial hit upon release in 1973, casual fans will recognize the title cut if they've ever dialed up a classic rock radio station for more than two seconds, and folks curious about what it sounds like when Grand Funk plays Todd Rundgren will want to hear "Creepin'." People who love white dudes with afros singing their chest hair off can just start at the beginning.
