82. Moby Grape - Moby Grape
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.
