LIVE ALBUM/CLOSER TO HOME




These 2 albums were Mark Farner in all his rawest, sexual, high energy, live bombastic, and energized glory. Two of my personal top 5 favorite albums of all time. They're both in my jeep cd player right now.

My top 5 favorites of Mark Farner tunes:
Into the Sun
Loneliness
Mean Mistreater
Heartbreaker
GFR Live is one of the Greatest Live Album's of all time; there are no overdubs here, only a few tweaks with the audience noise. We all bought this record and recently just bought the new re-mastered version. This album generated millions of fans for Farner and GFR. This music is not dated one bit. It still rocks the house down and new Farner fans pop up from the younger generations every day.

That Farner lead guitar and vocal magic gave GFR a special sound all to their own, It can't be faked or copied, or replaced. It was something natural with Farner's voice and his guitar.
The NEW edition of LIVE ALBUM is a 24 Bit Remastered Masterpiece, of hard rock n roll that never will be dated. David Tedds managed the project and he did a wonderful job.

The songs have all be restored to there proper order and lengths; The track's are; Introduction, Are you Ready, Paranoid, In Need, Heartbreaker, Words Of Wisdom, Mean Mistreater. Mark Say's Alright, T.N.U.C., Inside Looking Out, and Into the Sun.

Closer to Home is my favorite studio produced GFR record. Not because of Closer to Home which was the break out hit of that decade. It featured Mark singing Hooked on Love and I Don't Have to Sing the Blues. It was my obsession as a teenager living on an Army post in Georgia and far away from my home near Detroit. Mark's voice took me home everytime I heard him play.
Closer to Home was also big because I wanted to go home so badly. A city girl transplanted to the south. I liked it down there but I longed for the Motor City.
Here is one of my favorites:
Mean Mistreater/Mark Farner: Boy can Move...

Nobody ever sang as good as Mark Farner. Nobody came close! His voice is beautiful and as clear as a bell. This song really shows it off. He even has more power, better range, and better vibrato than any Italian opera singer.

I think Mark is so in tune with the earth because of his indian heritage......

This is the ultimate "solitude" to be in when blowing it "IN" a high end filled bottle dragging pure Afghan wheat... and you have just the forest around to shelter your inner soul while the speakers float away & hovering the tree tops as you lay below... out of this world GFR brought us all into forest ecstacy!!! Loneliness with nature...
