Grand Funk Railroad: "Mark, Don & Mel: 1969-71"

Released in 1972, this double LP compilation is not, strictly speaking, a "greatest hits" collection.  It is a gathering of studio and live recordings that represent highlights from the early success of Grand Funk Railroad.  And it rocks like nobody's business (sorry, couldn't think of anything cornier).  But seriously these are tracks you'd never get tired of spinning.

Pictures, art, and news clippings in the gatefold are much more interesting than the plain cover design.

An artful presentation of the producer's "liner notes" adorns the back of the album.

And the inner sleeves featured this great scrapbook collage of news clippings:

This album made its way to an afficiando in California.
