There’s a sort of low slung feel to many of the tracks here, reminiscent of Watson’s style. ‘Master Funk’, ‘The Funk If I Know’ and ‘De John’s Delight’ are highlights on Master Funk whilst ‘Pretty Brown Doll’, ‘Lil Sis’ and Follow Me’ are the best tracks on E.D.P.

One of the 1970s' most successful hard rock bands in spite of critical pans and somewhat reluctant radio airplay (at first), Grand Funk Railroad built a devoted fan base with constant touring, a loud, simple take on the blues-rock power trio sound, and strong working-class appeal. The band was formed by Flint, MI, guitarist/songwriter Mark Farner and drummer Don Brewer, both former members of a local band called Terry Knight & the Pack. They recruited former ? & the Mysterians bassist Mel Schacher in 1968, and Knight retired from performing to become their manager, naming the group after Michigan's well-known Grand Trunk Railroad.
