We're An American Band
Yes, it's the long-awaited new release/farewell document from Pete Weiss & the Rock Band, a swansong of sorts but also a celebration of the music that makes us want to rock. Yeah, Grand Funk Railroad's perennial anthem "We're An American Band" is on here, along with other rarely-covered gems from rock and roll's past. And of course, there are plenty of Pete Weiss originals. For a more complete rundown, read the ironically-titled News page.
