Following the enormous success of the first six Grand Funk Railroad albums, Capitol Records decided that it was time for a summary of the first stage of the band’s career and a two-LP best of was assembled. The next studio album, Phoenix, would feature keyboardist Craig Frost, who would eventually become the fourth member of the band so this release is comprised of the power trio era hits.

Mark, Don & Mel features the classic tracks “Time Machine,” “Heartbreaker” and “Paranoid,” which received heavy FM and AM radio play back in the day. The album also includes the band’s first truly huge Top 40 single, “Footstompin’ Music.” The closing track is the epic full-length version of “Closer to Home/I’m Your Captain.”

This release marks the first worldwide legitimate appearance of Mark, Don & Mel 1969-71 on compact disc and features a new mastering done especially for this release by Grammy® Award winning engineer, Vic Anesini.
