As I promised, here's Grand Funk Railroad's 'Into The Sun' video with all info available, re-edited and re-synchronized. Taping was done at a Grand Funk show at the 'Pirates World Amusement Park' theatre, in Dania, Florida. Pirates World was a theme park finally closed after Disney World opened in Orlando [as some friends informed me]
Barry Mahon -the one man crew film maker- who relocated there after New York, was arranging for 'big name groups' appearances at the Pirates World and use to film them with his single camera. (the reason why very limited footage existing from any angle)
The date was January 16 1970, but some of the footage was filmed the very next day... (Grand Funk played both 16 & 17 at the Pirates World)
Then again, as the footage film still was very limited, he would use some psychedelic drawings filling the gap... He also created a psychedelic title track intro for the movie.
Without GFR's and/or Knight's permission Mahon added this footage (plus some sexy scenes) to the original 1967 movie 'Mondo Daytona' and renamed it to 'Weekend Rebellion' in 1970. The promo poster for the two -low budget- movies came as pack (he also did 'Musical Mutiny' w/ Iron Butterfly) refers to the song 'Into The Sun' as... 'On Time' and 'Paranoid' as... 'Paranoia' (!)
In the glory reunion years (actually, 1997) the film renamed for one more time (!) and was thrown in the market in VHS format as 'Get Down Grand Funk' for reasons best left unexplained...
