Background: Released in late 1971, E Pluribus Funk was the fifth studio album by Grand Funk Railroad. The LP reached #5 on the U.S. album charts and was certified platinum by the RIAA.
The album, made by a band by now popular enough to sell out Shea Stadium (depicted on the back of the album, its cover designed to look like a silver coin), consisted of a series of simple rock tunes with lyrics devoted to the joys of music itself (“Footstompin’ Music”), social concerns generically expressed (“People, Let’s Stop the War,” “Save the Land”), and claims of romantic betrayal (“Upsetter,” “No Lies”). … Grand Funk were still primarily a live band, able to achieve intensity, but with little sense of the varying dynamics and musical textures that might make a studio album interesting to listen to beyond being a souvenir of their live show.
