Moby Grape

Moby Grape was a band that stood noticeably apart from its main San Francisco contemporaries, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and Quicksilver Messenger Service. In addition to being excellent instrumentalists, all five of the quintet’s members were also accomplished vocalists and exceptional songwriters. Additionally, the unit’s material consistently shows far greater diversity and taste than most of their Summer of Love brethren, eschewing unfocused jams and taking in not only rock, psychedelia, and pop, but also country, blues, and folk. Unfortunately the band was mercilessly dogged by problems ranging from poor management to guitarist/vocalist Skip Spence’s legendary mental instability, and only managed to record a handful of albums before the original lineup splintered at the close of the ’60s. Nonetheless, Moby Grape’s flawless self-titled 1967 debut, which contains the driving, neon-bursting hits “Hey Grandma” and “Omaha,” to many remains the single greatest album of the entire San Francisco era.
