Closer to Home is Grand Funk Railroad's third studio album, and was released in July 1970 by Capitol Records. It was produced by Terry Knight. This album reached RIAA gold record status in 1970, making it the group's third gold record in one year. The songs, "Sin's a Good Man's Brother" and "Aimless Lady", were later covered by South African group, Suck. "Sin's a Good Man's Brother" was also covered by the band Monster Magnet on their first full length album Spine of God. The album's inside artwork shows a live photo of the band performing at Madison Square Garden in February 1970.
In 2002 "Closer To Home" was remastered on compact disc with bonus tracks and also released in a limited edition box set "Trunk of Funk" that contained the band's first four albums. The "trunk" has slots for twelve CD's to house the future release of the remaining eight albums that were released by Capitol records. Also included is a pair of "Shinin' On" 3-D glasses, guitar pick and a sticker reproducing a concert ticket.
In the 2009 film Law Abiding Citizen, the song Sin's a Good Man's Brother is featured in the closing credits, which gained the band some extra recognitionin with today's youth.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
