The Red Grand Funk album is one of my favourites ever! The one before it "On Time" is pretty cool too.

Which live album did you get? Cos the one with the black and white cover is mindblowingly good, i'm really surprised if you didn't like it!

That's this one:

This one not so good:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live:_The_1971_Tour

And this one is not at all good!!!

Kinda like their Kiss Alive I & II

The first, Live Album, is when they were still the Railroad,
a classic Power trio, and before the lawsuit.
What they lack in finesse, they make up in rawness
pulling songs from the first three

Live 1971 bridges between the two main live albums
essentially augmenting Live Album with '71's
Survival and E Pluribus


Caught in The Act is a the template for double lives that would explode '76-'79.
This is after the lawsuit,
they are no longer the Railroad
they manage themselves
Craig Frost on Organ/keyboards has been added
they are musically more ambitious
essentially becoming a hard rock band
with blue eyed soul influences
no longer as raw but a gleaming US hard rock band
with an excellent run between '71 Survival and '74 Shinin On
