Grand Funk Railroad - Born to Die (USA 1976)

Uncle Roddus album of the day.

Time to do some quick reviews of stuff hiding in the deep dark depths of the Uncle Roddus hard drive. I have enjoyed some of Grand Funk Railroad's other albums and this one from well into their career  being something like their 12th album, is an average slab of mid 70s AOR blues based pop/rock. They were sounding pretty commercial by this stage, although not as blatant as say The Eagles or Fleetwood Mac, but I quite enjoy this one inspite of it being more tame than the psych of their earliest releases. Plenty of good melodies and good tunes but not something I'm gonna rush out and buy next week but deserves a Roddus rating of 3/5.
