Produced by Terry Knight, Closer To Home is Grand Funk Railroad's third studio album, and was released in 1970. The album reached gold record status the same year, making it the group's third gold record in one year. The album's inside artwork shows a live photo of the band performing at Madison Square Garden in February 1970.

Closer To Home was the record that really broke them through to the commercially successful level of Metal masters such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Rather than rushing headlong into their typical hard, heavy, and overamplified approach, Grand Funk Railroad began expanding their production values.

Most evident is the inclusion of strings, the acoustic opening on the disc's leadoff cut, "Sins a Good Man's Brother," as well as the comparatively mellow "Mean Mistreater." But the boys had far from gone soft. The majority of Closer To Home is filled with the same straight-ahead rock 'n' roll that had composed their previous efforts.

I recently bought an original pressing of this that was way too noisy to listen to. So I took a chance, and I am more than happy. It's dead quiet, and it sounds right. I can actually hear the "fuzz" in the piano on "Mean Mistreater" without the static. It rocks, and I'm happy to own it.
