Grand Funk Railroad - Into The Sun - Live 1970





On Time is the debut studio album by American heavy rock band Grand Funk Railroad. The album was released in August 1969, by Capitol Records. It was produced by Terry Knight.


"Time Machine", the band's first single release, barely broke the top 50 in the singles charts, reaching #48, however, after the success of their second album Grand Funk (aka The Red Album), On Time went gold shortly thereafter in 1970, one of four RIAA gold record awards for the band that year. The other two albums reaching gold status in 1970 for GFR were Closer to Home and Live Album.


In 2002, On Time was remastered on CD with bonus tracks and also released in a limited edition box set Trunk of Funk that contained the band's first four albums. The "trunk" has slots for twelve CDs to house the future release of the remaining eight albums that were released by Capitol records. Also included is a pair of "Shinin' On" 3-D glasses, guitar pick and a sticker reproducing a concert ticket.


Live Album is the first live album by American hard rock band Grand Funk Railroad, originally released by Capitol Records on November 16, 1970. The first single released from the album, "Mean Mistreater", was released on November 23 and the second, "Inside Looking Out", was released in January 1971.


The album was originally released as a double album on the LP format. Subsequent reissues of the album on the compact disc format have been both double and single disc sets.




Lyrics



Rising, setting, been trying to get into the sun yeah

Wanting, getting, gonna' get more baby when I'm done

All my life I had been waiting, then you turn me on

Now there'll be no hesitating, I'm getting into the sun

Growing, knowing, you learn more everyday yeah

Needing, succeeding, sun don't go away


Things are changing for the better, now I'm not afraid

I'll be writing you a letter, 'cause I just got paid

Growing, knowing, you learn more everyday yeah

Needing, succeeding, sun don't go away

Things are changing for the better, now I'm not afraid

I'll be writing you a letter, 'cause I just got paid
