Background
Most of us know this bloke from his days rampaging through the 60's as part of the power trio Grand Funk Railroad. Farner, Don Brewer and Mel Schacher were part of the American Rock N Roll dream during those years, which stretched out to the mid 70's before the band split. Farner continued on, with a pair of solo albums before putting the band together again albeit briefly for two albums in the early 80's. Mark continued to tour, and at one point had the members of Detroit AORsters Adrenalin as his backing band. During the late 80's, Mark changed direction, and released two CCM oriented albums, the first of which was this one: 1988's 'Just Another Injustice'.


The Songs
Mark has always had a spiritual angle to life, including Native American affairs ( he is Cherokee on his mothers side), so it probably should come as no surprise to see him working in the CCM field. Some of the songs on this album work an absolute peach. The opening 'Airborne Ranger' sounds like a missing track from Kansas's 'Power' LP. 'Judgement Day Blues' is a predictable rock/blues fest, while Farner turns heads with the lovely radio ballad 'Isn't It Amazing'. Who knew he could turn out stuff like this? 'Give Me The Works' is another acoustic ballad, but Mark really shines when he kicks into high-gear, as he does on 'Working For The Winner'. There are a pair of mild AOR tunes with 'Just Another Injustice' and 'Writing On The Wall' to round out the album.


In Summary
This album did see a CD release from Frontline, as well as Benson Records some years later. You should be able to pick this up on Amazon should you wish to progress to the buying stage.
