This hits the sweet spot between rock and roll and the "roots" sounds of country, blues, and friends. Hits it perfectly, as far as I'm concerned, with a delicious dusting of California psych. If the debut lacks anything, it's fully-formed songs: Many pieces sound like beginnings, though that does not mean they are lacking. The playing is good and well-rendered, but short of mind-blowing. The high points are confluences of many factors.

I'd never heard of this band. It was interesting to learn about their brief rise and very long, unfortunate fall. There's a cult following around this band that perpetuates a mythology about how they were screwed badly by their manager, and should be as big as The Beatles, and so on and so forth. There's no doubt they were screwed, but it also feels like maybe there were some self-inflicted wounds along the way. In any case, they put together a great debut album with a killer sound. The fact that all five members contribute to vocals allows them to do some interesting things, especially with the harmonies. There's some nice guitar work in here as well. Best track: Sitting By The Window

Very much like early The Who. There’s some really jammin’, rockin’ songs like Hey Grandma and Fall On You and some more country, The Byrds style songs like 8:05. Great guitar playing. Recording quality isn’t the best, also it’s not on Spotify? Had to look it up on YouTube. All short, quick hitting songs, only barely over a half hour

I knew nothing about this band, yet they produced this stunner. I particularly love those slightly bluesy numbers with that distinctive late-60s bass. Whichever of those great singers had that raspy voice, he is a good as anyone. Ever! That manager deserves to live in he'll with Kenny G being piped in.

Weirdly this album isn't fully available on Spotify or Amazon Music (there are some tracks, but they are mostly the 'bonus' tracks from a 2007 reissue). So be warned that if you listen on these services you aren't really getting the actual album. Was able to find it on youtube videos. Pretty great record! Something about this era and this style of music that always feels like coming home to me. I'm not a baby boomer that grew up with this stuff in my formative years (in fact, never heard this record before) - I think it's just that this era's blues-based rock is so foundational if you're a fan of rock music.

This album took a few listens to get but there's a lot more going on here than the first impression that it made. I like the three guitar thing and the fact that most songs were quite short, clocking in at under 3 minutes and one clocking in at under a minute. Unfortunately, there's something to be said for bands whose first album are their best album. But I think after a few listens the songs are well-crafter enough to give this 4 stars. It's a strong album with some good payout for multiple listens.

Surprisingly excellent rock album from a really talented band. It reminds me a little of a lot of things, a little rock and roll, a little country-blues vibe, with shades of CCR, CSNY and the Dead. Some of the more high energy songs can get a little ramshackle or rambling, but when they're focused, it's great music. I absolutely love the guitars, which are exceptional, and in league with some of the best in country rock. I also like the all-band/multi-vocal approach, propelled by a strong lead in Peter Lewis. Go to YouTube for the full album. Spotify didn't have all of it. Fave Songs: Hey Grandma, Fall on You, 8:05, Ain't No Use

Wasn't expecting this. Do people know about these guys? It's like if the Byrds slept with Chicago, and had a baby raised by Meatloaf. Teenage Fanclub must love them, power pop owes them big time. Some of the tightest rocking harmonies that've graced my ears. Every song short and sweet, only two breaking the 3 minute mark. Was this who The Monkees wanted to be?

I listened to self titled Moby Grape album from 1967. One of the previous records was from the lead signer of this group "Skip Spence." I enjoyed these songs quite a bit, definitely one of the better examples of late 60s psychedelia that I've heard. I would like to hear this with better quality and not a random Vimeo. The songs are surprisingly fresh, and the guitar work and harmonies were a step above.

I find the sound of this album kind of appealing. It's very garage-y. The three guitarists are kind of falling all over each, especially on the more uptempo tunes. It could have easily just been a mess, but instead it has a ramshackle charm. The song structures and melodies are poppy, and the harmonies are often strong enough to put it all over. Hey Grandma and Omaha are the obvious standouts--they have a relentless forward momentum and energy, but they're not the only strong tunes. I find it kind of impressive that this same band can pull off the highly specific tex mex influenced ballad 805--it's even kind of moving. There are some nice psychedelic touches here and there, too, although that hardly makes Moby Grape psychedelia. And then there's the sprightly, country flavored Ain't No Use. After that, the quality drops off, as if the members of the band were having trouble remaining focused. If the rest of the album were as good as the tunes I'd mentioned, this would be an easy 4.5 stars, but alas, not.

They sound like a bunch of different bands to me: a bit of country a bit of folk, some psychedelic rock. They like to change up the vocalists a bit, some are more talented than others. I recognize a couple of songs: 8:05 has a nice whimsical 60s feel. Omaha really rocks. I must know it from one of those 60s shows on CKCU. Hey Grandma, Changes and some of the sub 2-minute songs I could do without.

Another band name that makes you shake your head. They and the Electric Prunes must have been sampling the brown acid when they came up with their band names. I had to chuckle when I saw the album was made in 1 1/2 months for $11,000. I remember the Ramones saying Phil Spector made them spend 12 hours recording the opening chord to Rock & Roll High School. I like the raw and biting sound of the guitar solos on songs like Mr. Blues. It is similar to the sound Keef was laying down on solos in the mid 60s. (e'g. on She Said Yeah from Dec Children.) This was an enjoyable Psychedelic album.

This wasn't on Spotify or Apple Music without loads of tracks greyed out, but I found a rogue copy on YouTube. It's ok. Again, it feels like the sort of album that decades down the track is considered highly influential more than it's regarded as a work in its own right. It also gave me a good late 1960s rock feeling and I'm happy that it played a big part in shaping this sound.

Very solid, but it sounds like late 60's psychedelic rock. Which I still enjoy, but this album doesn't age the same way the real greats from that era did (like Jimi Hendrix's stuff). I really enjoyed the vocals, from pretty much all of the band. Come in the Morning, Lazy Me, and Indifference were highlights for me. Definitely worth a listen, not sure how many times I'd go back.

I have the first Buffalo Springfield album, and besides from the song "From What It's Worth," everything else sounds incredibly... dated. This is how I felt listening to Moby Grape. Every song sounded very dated, so old that it just does not break through the era it was made in. I imagine that's what's going to happen to a lot of the music that I knew growing up, when people who didn't live during the 70s and 80s hear it for the first time. Whereas for me it still fits into my head. So as good as the performances were, I doubt I would come back to it.

Unabashedly weird. Not mad at it, but definitely "get-high-to-this" music. Didn't leave a big impression on me, didn't hate it either. Kind of reminds me slightly of credence Clearwater revival, though a little too psychedelic for me. Def prefer CCR. Fave track: Indifference.

Kind of feels like a mixture of sounds that were being used at the time. It's very much your standard 60's rock album. Each member apparently sings/writes the music, so that's a fun fact to know. It's important to blend all of your influences in order to create something new. I've never heard of Moby Grape before, but they got some nice jams.

First time listen, "Mr Blues" reminds me of the British Blues Explosion bands like Yardbirds et al. Psychedelia at it's best. This is good music with some great riffs and driving Rhythm section. Also some nice harmonies for example in "8:05" and "Ain't No Use" which is also reminiscent of CSNY. I suppose this is in the same vein as Buffalo Springfield auguring the onset of Americana and Country Rock too. Fave's "Mr Blues" "8:05" and "Ain't No Use"

Moby Grape: Can’t you just smell the lava lamps burning? Hipper and groovier than one expected and pretty tuneful, but true to the cliches of the ‘60s. One gets why there was some hype here, but it feels just about 55 years old, doesn’t it? More garage than psychedelic at times. Opening side is gritty and driving (save for “8:05” which is quite good) but starts feeling canned by the end. Side 2 is much the more effective. There’s something fun to “Ain’t No Use” and dreamy about “Sitting by the Window.” Overall, the playing seems just slightly above average and the singing maybe slightly below. One wants to say you’ll like this sort of thing if you like this sort of thing – this sort of thing being standard-issue ‘60s rock. Solid effort – but not much more – despite one of the dumbest band names in rock history.

Something of an incomplete grade, since it was impossible to find the complete album anywhere. Amazon Music suggests the entire album is available, but only allows for the same handful of tunes as the other streaming services. Considering the band's mismanaged history, that's not much of a surprise. The songs I did find are all surprising gems, although as a native Nebraskan, I foolishly hoped for more from a song called "Omaha". It's fitting that a band known for having all the potential in the world but relegated to what-might-have-been status has an album on this list that seemingly no one can listen to in its entirety.

For whatever reason I can only access 2 songs and the bonus tracks in Spotify. Probably just as well, hippy folk music from the 60s hasn't aged fantastically. Have you heard California Dreaming? Yeah, it's that but not as catchy.

I only had maybe 35% of the songs because of Spotify, but it was...eh. Basic 60s blandness.

Like San Fran californian hippy surf rock. The kinda stuff that people say The Beatles did really well. Not so much my bag, alright though. Also, album cover looks like it might be The Red Victorian where me Jim and Scott stayed in San Fran. Decent musicians, kinda bluesy at times, but just wasn't loving it. 2/5

Felt like it was gonna be a banger at the beginning but petered out pretty quickly after a few tracks. Spotify version was also missing a few songs.

Moby Grape by Moby Grape (1967) They were supposed to be ‘the next big thing’ upon this debut album’s release, but they fizzled, and the reasons are evident on the record: five members, five lead vocalists, five front men, five songwriters, five egos. Plus, they were atrociously (over-)managed, but that’s backstory. This album could have been great. The talent was there. The opening track “Hey Grandma” shows their ability, and their ability to work together, when they applied themselves. But (except for track four, “8:05”) it really goes downhill from there. Mostly psychedelic rock, but it lacks the absorbing power of Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, The Doors, or many others. A qualifier is appropriate here: I never listened to them stoned. Since they were all five vocalists, it is noteworthy that they didn’t have a smooth vocal blend. Compare with CSN (with even the later Y), and there’s no comparison. Moby Grape was less than the vocal sum of its parts. Similar observations could be made about the competing guitar arrangements and performances. This ain’t The Eagles. The laughably surreptitious flipping of the bird and the cheesy faux political dying of the American flag in commie red on the cover photo adds to the plasticity (Oooooh, they’re so revolutionary, Cindy!). Too bad. These guys could really sing. 2/5

Never heard of these guys. Seems kind of like the Grateful Dead. Ok for me. 2/5

Really really really average 60s rock. I didn't hear anything particularly memorable or genre-defining. The best song is 55 seconds long. Spotify doesn't even have the full album, had to scour Youtube for the rest.

Pues solo se puede escuchar parcialmente, no está completo ni en Spotify, ni Tidal, ni YouTube Music. Lo oído no está mal pero poco más.

There isn't muich to comment on here. It's a 60s rock album. It doesn't offend, but then it isn't setting my world alight either. It's fine.

Honestly felt like all the songs sounded the same, there was nothing unique or distinctive about Moby Grapes' sound.

Didn’t like. Grape Jam is a better album
