I’ve written extensively about the travails of Moby Grape, the best 60s group most people have never heard. Some of my words on the subject are yet to be published, and when they are, it will be without byline. But if you don’t know their music, it’s worth getting to know. And then, if you don’t know their sad story, it’s an object lesson about..something. Not quite as tragic a tale as that of, say, Badfinger, but damn close.
Sundazed compiled all the bonus tracks from the (now out of print) original album CD reissues. It’s a story in itself. Read a full review of The Place and the Time, a worthy companion to the Grape’s official canon.
