Offered for sale is a still sealed original pressing of Shinin’ On by Grand Funk, with the original 3D glasses and poster.
This copy was pressed for and sold by the RCA Music Service record club but has the same cover and contents as the copies sold in stores.
About this copy: This copy of Shinin’ On is an original sealed 1974 pressing on the Capitol label, but pressed by the RCA Music Service. This copy was originally sold by mail order only.
As the album is sealed, the record is presumably unplayed. This copy should contain a 3D poster to go with the 3D glasses that are attached to the cover.
The wrap is 100% intact with no rips, tears, or holes. Beautiful copy!
A great copy of a Grand Funk LP that is notoriously difficult to find complete.
Background: Shinin’ On was the eighth studio album by Grand Funk, and reached #5 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the title track as a single, and a remake of “The Loco-Motion,” which had been a hit for Little Eva in the early 1960s.
Allmusic.com gave Shinin’ On this review:
After racking up their biggest success to date with We’re an American Band, Grand Funk Railroad decided to keep a good thing going by retaining Todd Rundgren as their producer and continuing to push their sound in a pop/rock direction. The end result has its moments but is not as strong as We’re an American Band. … Shinin’ On’s best songs are the ones that became its single releases: the title track infuses its hard-driving, spacy rock groove with some surprisingly ethereal vocal harmonies and the cover of “The Loco Motion” turns this dance classic on its ear with a stomping beat and a screeching guitar lead from Mark Farner. …Shinin’ On is too unfocused and uneven to win over non-fans but Grand Funk Railroad fans will find plenty to enjoy on this album.
