The Grand Funk Railroad chapter in the Rock Champions series released by Europe's EMI Plus label omits some of the '70s boogie rock heroes' biggest hits. "We're an American Band" may be the most memorable single of their career, but "Closer to Home/I'm Your Captain" and the twin hit covers "Some Kind of Wonderful" and "The Loco-Motion" are still staples of classic rock radio to this day. Fans looking for a more comprehensive overview of the band would be better off picking up Capitol's excellent 2006 Greatest Hits collection.
