82. Moby Grape - Moby Grape
Release Date: 1967
Moby Grape were another psychedelic group from San Francisco, along with the likes of Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Bruce Forsyth and Elise Dee and the Acid Pill Dropout Factory etc. In fact, guitarist Skip Spence was the original drummer for Jefferson Airplane before he went on to co-form Moby Grape. Out of all the 'classic' albums from this scene, this is one of those that had completely passed me by. I was expecting it to be similar to some of the recent albums I've heard by other bands who were influenced by chemical substances, but I was pleasantly surprised.
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
