Grand Funk Railroad: Closer to Home

This week’s video relating to music alluded to in the novel The Ten Weeks is Grand Funk Railroad’s “Closer to Home.”  It’s their performance of this classic in Shea Stadium, New York, on 9 July 1971.

On the album with the same name, the song ends with a very effective fade out.  Unfortunately, that couldn’t be replicated in concert.

In the novel, it’s mentioned right at the end of the book, but I’m not going to do a spoiler here.
