Sonically, Grand Funk's second live album, 1975's CAUGHT IN THE ACT, is a major improvement over the one-dimensional sound of its predecessor, 1970's LIVE ALBUM. The performances throughout CAUGHT IN THE ACT are consistent and energetic, resulting in great versions of such GFR classics as "Footstompin' Music," "Closer to Home," "Shinin' On," and "The Railroad," as well as an album-closing cover of the Rolling Stones' classic, "Gimme Shelter." Unfortunately, Grand Funk Railroad would run out of steam not long after the release of CAUGHT IN THE ACT, breaking up one year later in 1976.
