Thu, 31 Dec 1998 02:06:39 (NAME) Hans Muis (EMAIL) HMUIS@CSEM.NL (LOCATION) Netherlands (SONG) Omaha (MEMBER) Bob Mosley (RATING) **** (COMMENTS) After searching about a few months I finally found a website with Moby Grape. I already thought the only thing left for me were sweet memories and the records. No stories about the present & future. Keep going, you do a great job.


Wed, 30 Dec 1998 22:41:00 (NAME) Greg Gleichman (EMAIL) gleichman@stanford.edu (COMMENTS) A comment about the concert page. I was at a concert in 77 or 78 at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium. Moby Grape and the Ducks were the bill. I don't remember if Mosely played with The Ducks, but he did play with the Grape, as did Corny Bumpus. I do remember that Neil and Jeff Blackburn played with The Ducks that night. Some months later, I went to a show at the Rio Theater in Rodeo Calif. The Ducks were billed, but Neil wasn't on stage with them. Lot people, including us, had really come to see him. Don't remember if Mosely or Blackburn were there.
Wed, 30 Dec 1998 15:13:11 (NAME) AD (EMAIL) alde@rocketmail.com (LOCATION) NYC (SONG) Rose Colored Eyes (MEMBER) No favorite (REFERENCE) Just surfed on in! (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) A true tragedy in mythological terms ... But not to despair because these fuckers are still alive and kicking. As a teenager in the 60's I leaned towards stuff for the British Isles. I didn't really care for Amrerican music ... But .. Fuck ... the Grape ... how can I describe it... from funk to country to blues to pure unadulterated kick ass driving rick and roll. I think the only other group that could ever give the Grape a run for the money was the "Band" and I think that puts Moby Grape in pretty good company. I was sorry to miss their gigs at the Wetlands here in NYC ... but if these guys plan on comming to these parts again ... I will be there! I only saw them 2x in the 60's and still can recall bith experiences vividly. I knew that I was witnessing greatness...

Bob Mosley graduated in 1961, I guess. So, was I ever surprised in the summer of 1967 when Bob Mosley's face was starin' up at me from the record bin at Thearle's music store in Mission Valley Center. Bought it - wore it out - bought it again (without the "finger"). Wait a minute, Thirty-one years .... ?

I say "accidently" because I "judged a (record) by it's cover). How cool that Don was flipping off the camera! (Didn't some jerk decide to retouch it on later releases?) Didn't Skippy live in Ojai for a time...? I really have no "favorite member"...what for? I heard those guitars and I was in Nadasville. It's just too bad that so many young people today are followers and must idolize the Beatles. It's great to see young musicians knowing what was up then...and now... ...and ever...THE GRAPE!!!

Hopefully, the band can reintroduce all their past music once they win their lawsuit. I hope they finally get the recognition they deserve. It would be great to hear MG again, either through cd's or live .In my opinion, MG is the most underrated and overlooked band to come out of the 60's. MG was (is?) an incredibly talented band.

Just had my breakfast some toast & grape jam. I'm from N.Y. area trying to get some of the old gang together [at least the ones that are still alive] to go to the Wetlands shows in NYC on Nov 19 & 20. Is it all of original guys or what? Man, Moby Grape, Quicksilver & Sons of Champlin - 3 frisco groups that never got enough of the credit or fame. Well now that Moby Grape is back on the road is just great. And if you are not aware The Sons just put out a brand new live cd that kicks ass. They have been playing the west coast between Bill Champlin's gigs with Chicago. Well any east coasters planning on goin to the Wetlands show give me a shout out at GHenry1480@aol.com. First saw them at Fillmore East A couple of weeks b4 the closing of the Fillmore. Believe it or not Elton John was the opening act. Love all of Moby Grapes stuff but the 1st album and Moby Grape 69 are my favorites. See Ya Greg the Jersey Gypsy

As a full-time musician here in Nashville, I can tell you that I run into players all the time who remember the Grape with great love and respect! I never saw the Grape live, but did manage to see the Rhythm Dukes in '70 at a all-day music festival at Urbana Junior High School in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. They were great, and Jerry Miller was definitely SMOKIN'. I hope the reunited Grape make it to Nashville sometime. Best of luck in the fight against M. Katz!

(RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) The first time I saw Moby Grape on TV. was in Holland in the sixties. They performed at some lousy Tv show. And it was seen they were in a very bad temper. I'll never forget that performance, I thought it was impressive. In 1970 I bought my first Moby Grape album, when I was at Art-school in Stockholm., and I became a fan for life. I have all the albums, and some solo albums of Bob Mosley. Everything was/is very hard to get, in regular music stores overhere. I recenttly have internet, and Your site is one of the first I looked for. I want my collection completed. Since 1970, when I listen to music, apart from other favourites, I always listen to The Grape. Especially when I'm working in my studio(I am a visual artist) Your music is very valuable for me. And I know many friends in Holland, who are also fans for more than 30 years. with friendly regards, Herman van den Boom

A couple years ago, in my conversion to CD heyday, I actually allowed myself to let go of '69, 20 Granite Creek and Truly Fine Citizen. Earlier this year, Whilst perusing one of the local used vinyl shops, what did I find but these fine Grape albums with my signature on them (an old habit of mine to try to prevent theft back in my wild and reckless youth) I convinced the shop owner to trade them to me for taped versions of the first 2 albums which I had the sanity to keep. Unfortunately, the poster from my 1st album disappeared eons ago, but the cover is the original c/w finger. I was pleasantly surprised to see Jerry playing guitar along with Jay Geils on the Bluestime CD. And was really looking forward to their coming to town a year or so ago, unfortunately all the dates in the local area were cancelled.

I picked up a copy on CD and it has the original cover art ("finger") on it. The only problem with it is it was recorded at a time when about 35 minutes was all you could cram on two sides of wax. If you guys had recorded that album with todays technology, it would have to be considered in the top three all time rock-n-roll recordings. (By the way, I think its there already in its original form)

I was looking for some examples of psychedelic posters of the era, so that I can use our group photo from the reunion as well as a montage of photos from that time to make up a commemorative poster to send on to the people who showed up. It was neat to find the repository of guitar tab of all the songs! I would LOVE to have a tablature transcription of the melodic recurring guitar run from "8:05" -- any idea where I could find that? Keep on keepin' on!!

Really, the main reason that I surfed on over here was that I used to receive "Truly Fine Citizen" from Scott Sather (via email) and now I've noticed that it's missing. I miss it. Thanks. I'd reiterate my story of how I turned on to the Grape, but I'm sure that's already in your guest book from last time. Thanks again. Oh, I forgot... I finally had the money recently to acquire a copy of "Vintage Grape," but now I can't find a copy. Any advice where to get it cheap (not import)? Thanks.

(MEMBER) Skip Spence (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) Being a Grape fan is sometimes frustrating, cause even in the sixties there was usually only a small circle of people who knew AND appreciated THE record (the first album, that is). Having played it for over 30 years now, I'm still baffled by the richness and variety of the singing, playing and melodies and lyrics of the songs. "Omaha" has always been a big favourite (I still owe the original Dutch single release with photo sleeve) it also was the very first Moby Grape song I ever heard. Thanks guys for having made the greatest record ever.

Can't believe I found it and it has tons of great info I always wanted to know! The 1st Moby Grape album has ALWAYS been one of my favorites. This album and the 1st Byrds album are like part of my "fiber"! I play them frequently and never tire of the songs. I'm 47 and have been playing music myself for over 30 years currently playing bass for "The Satellites", who specialize in 60's music - (American & British Invasion). I love Bob Mosley's bass work and the great harmony on that 1st album. I totally agree that Moby Grape were UNBELIEVABLE musicians and their songs and licks still blow me away, even after 30 years! Please let me know of any future concerts near Baltimore. Thanks.

Sun, 19 Jul 1998 10:50:02 (NAME) Rennie Selkirk (COMMENTS) Ooops! I didn't see your "Library" link. So scratch the suggestion in my recent email. One thing I would say is that some of the color combinations in the web page make it a little difficult to read some of the stuff. For instance, the white type on the 'wiggly' purple on the Guest Book page. Might be better in simple black. Also the 'used' link color of red kind of gets lost in the purple too. One solution might be a more finely detailed and less intrusive background pattern. Of course it's gotta have that goofy late-60s free-love psychedelic look to it! (Seriously.) Cheers, Henry J. B.

Even now, at 47, I'd love to know just who played what on the first album. I remember seeing the Grape on the "Mike Douglas Show", playing LIVE, with the crappiest sound ever broadcast over national TV! I only wish the Wow version of "The Place & the Time" had been included on the double CD.

Great band. When I listen to newer bands like the Jayhawks, their harmonies and writing remind me of the Grape who had country rock down way before the Eagles,etc. Skip was always my favorite- great writing. I hope the orginal five will write new songs and do a new CD together before one of them passes on to a better world. I wish all of them the best and hope they keep singing and touring. Quite simply-ahead of their time and the best group of American songwriters and singers put together in one band. God bless you for this web-site.

Great news to hear you've managed to kick that manky Kat into touch (finally). I found the site as I produce a radio show in Oxford for a local FM station, currently focussed on modern music :( - but I'm trying to switch the focus to 60s psychedelia and the like, so was doing some web research. If anyone can help me with any information, anecdotes, tips of unheard of material etc... I'd be really grateful. Also, a Grape interview would be a real winner! I've got to submit a proposal to the station management in a week or two and hope to gather as much support as possible before then. If there's anything I can help anyone out with I would be MORE THAN willing :) It really is good to see things going so strong. Keep it up - I'll keep coming back and will spread the word. hasta manyana danburt

I was a musician in the 60's and 70's and a major fan of the Grape. Don and his wife Janice have been here in Sedona on vacation for the past week and have had dinner with my family and me three of the last five nights. Last night my son and his guitar teacher (Bill Barns) and Don and I jammed for about three hours, playing old R&B songs, some Grape tunes, and some of Don's new material. I'm delighted to report that Don is married to a terrific woman, is doing well in business and is healthy and happy. Don is as sweet and gentle a man as I have had the pleasure to have known. He still stays in touch with the Grape members as much as possible. Jerry Miller flew up to Vancouver last year to be best man at Don's wedding. He tells me that Skippy and Bob are doing much better these days and that Peter is in fine voice and good health. Peace to you all. George

Also, I am on the faculty at SFSU and teach a rock history class. Perhaps one of the original band members would like to come and talk to my students one day. Unfortunately, we can only offer a very modest honorarium (about $75, perhaps a little more), but it might be fun and might also be a way to draw for any upcoming concert. Let me hear from you.

Then bought the rest of the album's & solo efforts. Love the vocal's & guitar work of the Grape, & it's interesting Miller, Mosley & Co are still rockin'. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. P.S. " HE " has got to be one of the most beautiful songs ever, the guitar work is immaculate.

I live in a small town and as far as I know no one around here has ever heard of them, it's really sad. I try to recruit people into being Moby Grape fans, but usually it s not very successful. I think this is a really good web page. Keep up the good work.

Nice guest page, too! Reading some titles still gives me gooseflesh. I still have the first five on vinyl, the first album twice - my very first copy became too scratchy. I once placed an ad Hitweek saying "Jerry Miller is the best guitar player in the world" - it was a long time ago, but the band can still bring tears to my eyes. And I still don't know all the words to the songs, especially *oar* is a tough one... "her hair hanging northwards, as she travels south..." "dawn to dusk a lifetime..." I know it's only rock'n'roll, but I love it.

One of the albums was Moby Grape. Somewhere lost is my MB Album. This Page is the best. Thank you. I saw them in Concert in SLC, in the late 60's, they were in the middle of a tune when the power went off. The stage crew had it back on in seconds. when it came back on they started the song right where they left off. Been signing there songs in my band since 68.

I was hooked!!! I wanted to run away to SF but my parents wouldn't let me. I believe that my mother bought the LP as either a birthday gift or Christmas present. I remember how great the music and lyrics sounded but there was no poster in the Canadian pressings! Today I searched into my vast record collection dusted off the old MG vinyls (4) and I tried to relive the glorious golden past of the sixties. MG welcome back to the nineties!!! P.S. do you have any of those original MB 1st LP posters left? I would like to buy one. Lastly do you remember the underground magazine called 'Paperbag' that was published in the late sixties. Where can I find a copy? Please advise.
Sat, 24 Jan 1998 10:11:19 (NAME) John Pierce (EMAIL) jp@ns.gemlink.com (LOCATION) Culpeper,Va. (SONG) Gypsy Wedding (MEMBER) Bob Mosley (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) the grape represented everything that was uplifting, hopeful and chaotic about growing up in the sixties. the thing that separated them from the rest of the hippie pack was their sophisticated musical range. Here's a test: Listen to some of the recorded output of most of the other san francisco based groups of the time next to any grape song. no comparison. the grape stuff still sounds fresh to me. alas, talent of that magnitude comes with a cost, and it was inevitable that the band would implode. i love the grape and will always have a special place in my heart for their music and that time. john pierce

There is so little variety and every one trying to follow a guided path to success in the industry. People lose sight of their creative nature for the possibility for financial gain. I think the time is ripe for a Moby Grape Tour. The quality of the music is great and now is the time.

Have since built a decent collection of vinyl and now CD's. Always knew Moby Grape was cool but could never find their albums. When I found Vintage, I got into the right frame of mind and listened to these songs I had never heard before. I was absolutely blown away! The best rock music came out of Bay Area in '65-69, esp '67. Although a loyal Deadhead, I gotta say Moby Grape is even better than the Dead! Thanks, Scott, for bringing this page to the world. Have a grapeful day!!

Played with a band through high school and tried to play any Grape song we could. I took my album with me to Viet Nam and played it every chance I could. Many of my navy buddies became "Grape Fans" back then. On my return to the real world in 1973 some of my belongings were lost in-transit as you have already figured out my treasured Grape album was gone forever. I was lucky enough to see them live on three occasions and nobody can ever steal that memory. Thanks for listening and Thanks to Moby Grape for all the great music. Sure would like hear the original cuts again! RT

I bought WOW! based solely on the cover (but that's the way it was in the 60's, you know?) and loved it. Believe it or not, I never heard the debut album till the 80's (I'm slow, I suppose). I wore my vinyl copy of WOW! to nothing. One day I thought of it again and went searching a local small CD store when the silver discs were just beginning to appear. Lo and behold, there was a European 2-CD import but the $40 price tag stopped me (I didn't' have as much disposable cash, even then) Now I thoroughly regret not hocking my life away and buying it. I'm very disappointed that the San Francisco Sound disc is truncated. If you know of a way to find the 2 disc import, PLEASE let me know. Thanks again. This place is fun. These guys should have been big stars! Charlie, yet another grey-headed aging hippie Cherokee boy (there are actually quite a few of us!)

I found out about the 10/12 Pozo show (which I attended) through this page, and I will continue to watch for upcoming shows. (NOTE: Short but excellent show in Pozo). I saw the boys live in '68, then '97 - they've still got it! It will be a crime if they don't get back into a studio soon. Also, we need to do something to get the following issued (or reissued) on CD - Moby Grape'69, Truly Fine Citizen, Fine Wine, Bob Mosley's solo LP and later EP, Legendary Grape/Melvilles.

I let a friend borrow my second copy a couple of years ago and he's somewhere in Asia now. I had Wow!, but it's long gone. I still collect vinyl, so I hope to find it. I didn't care much for anything else after that. I thought that the first album has held up well for 30 years. Don't know about WOW!...haven't heard it for about 25 years. I remember the hype. It fell flat. Too bad. They were a real band.

I was lucky enough to see the grape recently at the thursday nite show at the wetlands in new york. I have to admit I wasn't sure what to expect. Unfortunately the last time I saw them was on the 20 granite creek tour and the band was not in very good form, but this recent show was simply amazing! Since the show I have a renewed interest in the band and their recordings. You have two recordings on your site that I'm trying to track down. The first is the cassette only "legendary grape" and the other is titled "black magic". I would appreciate any information you may have on how or where to obtain these recordings. I would also be interested in getting on your grape newsletter. thank you very much and I'll recommend your site to other grape fans.

After discovering your beautiful site on the Web, I went out and got the '93 compilation and went home to tune in. I really like what I've heard so far, which is the first of the two CDs. I wish the guitarists did more jamming on these cuts -- they're fantastic! Thanks for turning me on to this band. Peace. --Jill

Just have to keep comin' back over & over again. The 'First' Moby Grape album was the best thing to come out of the San Francisco music scene until The Sons Of Champlin's "Loosen Up Naturally" came along in 1969, IMHO. When the stage curtains opened at the Santa Monica Civic in July of 1967 and Moby Grape opened with, as I remember it, "Hey Grandma", I knew I would remember them more so than the Yardbirds who were headlining. Jerry Miller's musicianship, Bob Mosley's vocals and Skippy's energy and stage presence made for one of the top ten concert experiences of my life. Damn, it was a pleasure to have been part of those times! Hey Linda, who went to her prom with Skippy!!! If you see this message please get in touch with me. I knew you in North Hollywood/Van Nuys in the late 70s when your boyfriend was Gregg, who drove that 914 Porsche! I was his foreman at the awning shop, remember?

(RATING) **** (COMMENTS) I was there the last show at the fillmore in 71 shortly after the 20 granite release. I went to SF by bus just for it. slept in the bus station that night. I'll never forget it, I wasn't stoned except on the music. Grape has been my favorite band since I heard their first album. I don't know what the release date was but I know I was the first one to buy it in fresno. They only played here once and I missed it. couldn't afford $3.50 for a ticket. I heard they said they would never play fresno again. well, I'm still waiting. I have seen the grape several times through the years and I would love to again. It isn't really fair of you to ask for a favorite member of the grape when they are such a diverse group. with so many musical and personality differences. I find them all to be admirable and respected for their personal contributions to what I consider to be a great part of '60s-'70s rock. Your website is a great monument to them and I appreciate it.

I got turned onto the Grape 15 years ago and have been a fan ever since. I still feel that their debut album is one of the greatest recordings ever to be released (only wish they were given additional time to jam on some of the tunes!). Recently saw them perform at Big Boulder in the Poconos and was blown away by them. Hopefully Skip and Don will join them next time around. Please email me if anyone has a copy of the 8/9/97 show at Big Boulder. I'll be happy to trade other sixties tapes. Look forward to future news on the Grape and additional shows.

Their recent visit to nyc makes me imagine they'll be up here, too, but I see no mention of such a thing on the gigs page. What's the scoop? In any event your pages are great, especially the old interviews. The story of Skip and Bob are touching. I'd love to see Bob in person playing after what he's been through. Thanks -Ely

Just about all of the first album + a lot off Moby Grape '69 +...(no more space!) (MEMBER) Peter Lewis (REFERENCE) Just surfed on in! (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) I've been visiting this site religiously for the past four months when I first discovered it. I can't believe I forgot to sign the guestbook right away, but the timing is actually great because I just saw the band at the Wetlands on the 7th. I haven't come down yet! What a treat! I didn't really know what to expect. Who would be there? Would they be "rusty"? Would anyone's talents be diminished? They played a set of close to an hour--all songs from the first album--and then said they were "just warming up", and would be back to play a longer set. That first set was good, but the second was fantastic! Jerry Miller was on fire! Several L-O-N-G solos that were incredible. Peter and Mosley's voices were as strong as ever, and the harmonies were perfect. It was just so great to be able to see these guys again, let alone to be standing about six feet away from them in this great little bar and having them sound so great. The only other time I had seen them was in '68 at the Wolman Skating Rink in Central Park, NYC, right after Skipper had left the band, and the concert was awful! I have been carefully educating my sons in the music and story of this great "lost" band. Two of them (ages 18 & 21, and huge music fans) came with me and were also blown away by Miller and loved the whole show. So I've been doing my duty with regard to the next generation! On the way off stage after this second set (which must have been close to 2 hours), Jerry Miller promised that they would return to NYC much sooner next time--I can only pray that he's right! Peace & love--eric

No doubt they were a terrific influence on me and my playing when I was younger. I can't believe I missed the gig at the Wetlands. Web page is wonderful.

They recently did a Red-White-and-Blues with eleven bands (Jerry Miller and Co. included, of course!) spanning three days. All the artists were required to "cover" an artist or band for an entire set. There was some purple music in the air...Saturday night was headlined by Lydia Pense and Cold Blood.

I'm knocked out by the entire record. At this point, I've been a professional musician-guitarist for 30 years and I'm still learning things from their records. I've been looking for the words to the 1st album since day 1. I remember "Hit Parader" or some teen magazine had them. I saw them once and that was it. Now, tonight, 30 years later, I" able to see all the lyrics. My one and only time seeing them was in Lake Tahoe, June '68. They were 4 pieces. I'm on a family cross country trip and the folks let me go to some club to hear them. Opening act from San Fran was Queen Lilly's Soap"-never heard from them again. The 2nd act was a San Fran band called Santana Blue. Guess who? Lastly though, Do you hear the bass drum pedal squeak throughout the entire 1st album. I swear I do. Let me know if anybody else does also. Keep up the grape work. All the best, Darryl Berk

I hope that a Fender bass will find its way back into Bob's hands one day. He inspired me as a bass player, and I hope he will feel it again for himself.

Their debut album was one of the best rock albums ever made. In an era of big-time, big money rock reunions it's surprising that Moby Grape has been rather overlooked. I hope all the band members are well, playing for fun, making lots of new music and that there will be a big demand for their previous music. It's still as fresh as when it was first recorded.

24 Apr 1997 06:28:47 (NAME) John Montifeltro (EMAIL) jmonti@tpgi.com.au (LOCATION) Melbourne, Australia (SONG) Hey Grandma (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) I grew up in a mining town in northern Minnesota about 12 miles from Hibbing (where Bob Zimmerman lived). I first heard Moby Grape on their Columbia album where the boys were photographed wearing their hippie garb. My middle class sensibilities were somewhat rocked by the fact that one of them was extending his middle finger out as he rested his hand on his knee. Anyway, I was a Rolling Stone, Bob Dylan, Byrds, and English Beat group fan, but I'll never forget the great sounds of this band. I am looking for the best versions of their shortlived career on CD. Any reviews/suggestions? Thanks.

(SONG) The Whole First Album (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) I remember searching the record bins at Rose's Department store as the only long haired 17 year old in my Virginia home town for albums and buying anything that had a psychodelic cover . I found the first Moby Grape album in the "Hippie Music" section buried behind stacks of other non-sellers, and took it home w/ all my other treasures. Of course once I played it I wore out my father's stereo learning all the songs, and my affection for this music has not died to this day. These guys helped define my craft, and my love for good Rock and Roll, and I would like to thank each of them personally for what this music has meant in my life, and to the creator of this Web page for helping to keep it alive. WELL DONE GUYS!!

Shortening things a bit was a good call. While reading the last issue (with the Bob Mosley chat), I was taken back to the time when I first heard the Grape. I remember very vividly how passionate I was about the incredible music of the era. In particular, there were three albums that had the power to absolutely overwhelm me: "Are You Experienced?", "Sailor," and "Wow." There is so much power, beauty, anger, passion, and tension in Wow, that it's hard to take it all in. The Grape had the vocal chops to be mentioned in the same breath with the Beatles, but were better musicians. And Wow is every bit as innovative as Sgt Pepper's. How could anyone listen to a lyric like "He...awoke and told his friends things he'd seen and heard, but could not comprehend..." in that haunting (and haunted) voice and not be moved? And how could anyone listen to "Super-powered, de-flowered, over-18 Irene..." and not smile? Who before or since has combined guitar and bass to greater effect than the Grape does on "Rose Colored Eyes?" or has harmonized with more profound beauty and sadness than on "Bitter Wind?" The Grape moved me profoundly in my youth they move me still. Thanks again for a great page!

They've been such an inspiration, more so than many other more popular bands during their time. I just can't say enough.

I firmly believe Jefferson Airplane lost a great songwriter and generally great guy when they swapped Skip Spence for Spencer Dryden. I have listened to the Airplane's material after the first album (which Spence drummed on), and I can conclusively say that Spence was not only a more interesting drummer but a great songwriter. Dryden seems to have contributed only two songs to any Airplane albums ("A Small Package" from AFTER BATHING AT BAXTER'S and "Chishingura (spelled right?)" from CROWN OF CREATION), and they sucked. Just two minutes of pure noise each. Now Spence wrote SONGS, folks. Good stuff. Even when he was just the drummer. I still like the Airplane, but I like their early '66 lineup (with Spence and singer Signe Anderson, who was replaced by Grace Slick) better than their later lineup. Keep up the good work! Oh, and could you maybe get some more chords for Grape songs? Thanks so much.

For some reason both their music and band members were left out in the cold and totally unappreciated (like the 13th floor elevators) while others sold out to the establishment, (airplane, dead etc.) to make big bucks and bogus music..... Thank God that the Grape can live again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to stay informed of any live appearances scheduled anywhere in California or Nevada. I saw the House of Blues show and was knocked out! Miller was brilliant and to hear Mosley sing "Mr. Blues" was a dream come true! I hope that their plans for a new album come to fruition. Let us know where we can get any solo or group recordings. I'd like a copy of the Melvilles cassette from 1990 if anyone knows where it might be available. Thanks, Matt

Their synergy together was phenomenal! I stumbled across moby grape because WOW was being marketed as a 2/4/1 album set WOW and Grape Jam - an off-the cuff improvisational exercise. I was very cost conscious, being a kid, so a 2/4/1 deal seemed intriguing. It wasn't a popularly known band, so I was pretty sure I wouldn't be nauseated. I glanced at the back, and I saw my current heroes, Al and Mike. Done. I took it home and was immediately enthralled. These guys were in the belly of CORPORATE and still had an edge! GEE-WHIZ! favorite tune on WOW Miller's blues. IT CRANKS! I still have that album, and still listen. Love the 35mm proof liner. Sorry I can't play the 78rpm cut anymore -- Arthur Godfrey? What a rush!

Few bands before or since (and there's been a lot of "since") had the Grape's sense of melody, intensity, and outright skill." Wow" still stands as one of the greatest rock albums in history. 'He', 'Motorcycle Irene', 'Murder in my heart...', the Arthur Godfrey thing recorded at 78RPM...incredible still. Anyway, thanks. I like your page!

They are a great band and their musical influence is living on through the generations, and is having a very positive influence on people and the lives of people. I have spoken my bit, so Peace all.

(SONG)  what else, "Omaha"  
(COMMENTS)  This is great! I've been dabbling with the internet for about 2 
years now - mostly e-mail - I'm highly mobile, and that has posed a problem. 
But a few days ago, I was strumming my guitar playing a Cippolina / 
Knopfleresque version of "Pride of Man", when I decided to see what I could 
find about Quicksilver on the web. Low and behold, I found out that all of my 
adolescent guitar heroes were on the web (even the ones that are dead!) I hit 
"2400 Fulton Street", found the Quicksilver homepage, and also Barry Meltons 
(If I ever need legal help, I now know who to contact), and now its the Grape. 
About a year and a half ago, I purchased the double cassette compilation put 
out by Columbia, and was just enthralled - not only by the music, but also by 
the narrative written by David Fricke. That was my tape of two summers ago! By 
the way "Bitter wind " is a close runner up as my fave with "Omaha".

They had everything (or almost), and lot's of people never knew. I saw them at Wollman Rink in Central Park NYC, I think very late 60's, as a trio (one of the best live bands I'd seen - Bob Mosley, Jerry Miller, drummer?) I'd love to find a CD reissue of Moby Grape '69. Their music still holds up today (unlike many other of my 60's faves). Thanks for this page.

When robert plant played tacoma- Jerry was back stage....you know LZ copied lots from MG. Lots of folks remember MG and lots don't...My generation the so called "generation x" gets me, because so many people like to think they're hip and they know about music-,but when you ask them if they've ever heard about MG they always say "who????"-you are doing a great thing by having this Web page. Thank you. Hey, if you know about anyone in this area who is into the MG and playing music let me know. i have lived quite alot in 25 years-from being a suspected terrorist at 15 in JFK airport-to travels around the country-getting rides in limousines-living in New Orleans playing music with friends of the allman bros. band-and living in ecuador, SA for 4 years where my future wife lives-music has always been constant. You know, it's really strange how i met Mr.Miller-when i first came out to Seattle, I happened to be on a bus trying to find the employment office-i was asking the driver for directions when this scraggly guy told me where to go-after he gave me directions he blurted out that he was a roadie and he had worked for rod stewart, jerry miller-"jerry miller?", i asked,-the very same one (this guy's name is rob colby-he's homeless-i was too for a time after i got out here(so i relate very much to Mosley's plight) 6 months later i went to see jerry at chicago's. I also managed to meet david rae-Gordon Lightfoot's original guitarist and author of "mississippi queen" and stayed with him and his wife on bainbridge island. well I gotta go(at work)give me a call-206-623-7720.

I spent many nights between Feb 1967 and whenever listening to the Grape... Difficult to remember specifics, but in the more sober late 70's my dreams came true and I got to meet them at a gig in S.

This is the first time I've written to anyone's home page, but just couldn't resist when it had to do with the Grape. Thanks for the opprtunity.
15 Oct 1996 05:26:46 (NAME) Paul Nutter (EMAIL) pnutter@indiana.edu (LOCATION) Bloomington, Indiana (SONG) 8:05 (MEMBER) Don Stevenson (COMMENTS) In the Summer of 1994, I think it was July 1 to be exact, I headed out to San Jose to see my aunt & uncle. I changed planes in Salt Lake. When I boarded the plane I noticed a man in my seat. He was maybe in his early 50's. He moved over, and before I sat down I put my bag in the overhead compartment. I noticed there was a case for a fly-rod in there, I asked the man if that was his, and instant conversation! We talked about fishing, where to go, what was fun to catch, and some how we got to talking about the military. I had gotten out of the Air Force a few years ago, and it just so happens that he was in the A.F. As our conversation flowed about military life, and life in general, it drifted towards music. He asked me what type of music did I like, and I was a little nervous because we were having a great conversation and I didn't want it to stall. I told him that I liked a lot of groups from the 60's. I mentioned groups like, Buffalo Springfield, Cream, CSN&Y, Hendricks, Joplin, and many others. I noticed this gentalman starting to straighten up in his seat as I mentioned these groups. When I was finished, he asked if I had heard of a group called Moby Grape. I'm going to stop with the story right now. I've lost track of time, and have a mid-term exam in ten minutes. I'll write back and finish my story!!
Ok Scott, the mid-term is over, where was I?? Oh ya! This guy tells me that he used to play in some blues bands around the San Fransico area throughout the 60's. He goes on to tell me that he hung out with Hendrix, Garcia, Joplin, and the lot. Then he starts talking about Moby Grape and the unique sound that they had. He went on to tell me that they were just inches away from being one of the top stars of the late 60's. He told me how their first album was released the same day that the Beatles Sgt Pepper was. He went on to tell me other stories about the group and made an hour and a half flight seem like 10 min. We walked down to baggage claim together and he told me of the two C.D. set that Columbia had put out. I went out that day and bought it, and have been hooked ever since. Before we parted he gave me his business card. His name is Gordon Stevens. He still lives in San Jose, and owns a recording studio called Sonic Images. I think it's a great story on how I got hooked to the Grape, and I thought you might want to hear. Since that time, I have also shared the wealth with friends and family members. Many of my friends have bought Grape C.Ds and are still enjoying the ride. I play my Moby Grape C.Ds at least once a week in the liquor store I work at. As a matter of fact, thats the way I found your web site. I was mentioning Moby Grape to a customer last Friday, and see came in the store last night and told me of your web site. Another interesting Grape story took place last year. I had a geology class, and at the end of each class our professor would ask a rock&roll trivia question. We got to talking one day after class about music and I mentioned Moby Grape and a big smile came to his face. He said that he saw Moby Grape on one of their east coast tours in the late 60's or early 70's. I let him borrow my C.D. and he came in the next day all smiles. He said: " I'd fogotten how much good music they had." Ever since I met Gordon, Moby Grape has popped up somewhere at least four or five times a year, and every time it does the person is all smiles. Hope that brings a smile to your face. Paul (friends call me The Nutman, you to please.)
14 Oct 1996 19:14:05 (NAME) Bruce Moyer (EMAIL) multitape@pipeline.com (LOCATION) Washington DC area (SONG) impossible to pick (RATING) *** (COMMENTS) I was trying to put my finger on why I kept feeling Moby Grape was so influential to me even though they were not "BIG". Personally I never felt they were very representative of the psychedelic scene. Then I hit upon this idea: while the Band is somehow credited with producing truly "post-Beatles American music", I think the Grape did it much better. Truly American, truly rock and roll and truly original.

The "opening" acts were Sonny & Cher, the 5th Dimension, and Glen Campbell (whatever happened to them?)The headliners were the great Moby Grape. Of the hundreds of records I collected from that era, the Grape's first album still gets regular play in my house. Love your page! I'll be back!

As a guitar player who spent countless hours learning the licks off of Miller's Blues and Ain't No Use, I should be citing Jerry Miller as the favorite guy, but Mosely's hollering really gave them soul. Yeah, that's it. Moby Grape is my favorite soul band.

(MEMBER) Skip Spence (RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) Thank you very much for doing the page! Having found it very hard to get hold of Moby Grape/related music/info over the years, this has come as a real bonus for me. I'm far too young (36 now) to have seen the group or anything like that, but I first heard them when I was about 14-15, having already read about the San Francisco groups & having heard the Grateful Dead/Quicksilver/Jefferson Airplane & not really cared much for any of them, & they were & still are a total revelation. I like all sorts of music & go along 100 percent with Duke Ellington when he said that there were only 2 kinds of music, good & bad. No prizes for guessing which category the Grape fall into! One question I have to ask you is: could you possibly provide me with the catalogue # of the "Oar" cassette release? I recently enquired about which formats it was available in & was told CD only.I had an LP re-issue copy stolen many years ago & now only have a cassette player, so I'd be really grateful for any help you or anyone you know could give me with regards to this. Many thanks again, look forward to hearing from you... Richard

(RATING) ***** (COMMENTS) A few years back I passed a hole-in-the-wall tavern in North Seattle. My false teeth went flying because the marquee said "Moby Grape". I couldn't believe it - The Grape played at the first rock show I went to in Southern California (hollywood Palladium w/ Jo Jo Gunne, Albert King, and Quicksilver-something). My friend in Calif had touted Peter Lewis as the fastest guitarist in the world. This was in 1971, I think - turned out to be a Grape reunion. Lewis wasn't real fast that night but the whole band still was great. Then in Seattle, around 1991 or 92 I think, this group at this litle tavern still played their hearts out, with ten times the facility of most bar bands. I was so entranced by the guitar (Jerry Miller?) playing that I didn't hear the lyrics at all. They've not been here again, so I'm interested to hear of their current activities.

That was the first time I saw Moby Grape. They were absolutely one of the best acts at Monterey, playing a blistering set that was musically brilliant with the three-guitar onslaught and visually exhilarating because of Skip Spence. He was every bit as good a performer as Mick Jagger and the Grape electrified the crowd. The next time I saw them was about 6 months later at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. Skip didn't show up that night (Jerry Miller kept saying "He'll be here") and the show was lackluster. The opening act that night was the Jeff Beck Group featuring an unknown, spectacular, lead singer-- Rod Stewart.

14 Feb 1996 08:10:08 Hi Scott, It was strange. I clicked on the button to submit what I had written in the guest book and it brought up the page for mailing you. Maybe the problem is the OS/2 web browser. Anyway here's what I tried to send you: The web pages are *GREAT*!! If you're interested, I can scan the CD covers of "Oar" and "Fall on Amsterdam". What size do you want? What format JPEG, GIF,...? Are uuencoded files OK? I can try scanning the LP covers for "Moby Grape 69" and "Grape Jam". Both are worn, so I don't know how good they'll come out. I can also scan the label of the "Fall on You"/"Changes" single. --Barry

Then we piled on the bike nad went downhill until we reached the Rio Nido Ballroom. There we heard the Grape and Janis' bunch which lator, Johnny, Eric and I considered to be a legendary concert. What great days.

You don't mention the "False Moby Grape" tour that Matthew Katz put togethe, one of the biggest disappointments of the 60s for me. This was a band with only one actual Grape in it. We got $2 back on our tickets, but bummer. I became a Moby Grape fan one line into "Hey Grandma", cut 1 side 1 and haven't stopped being one since. I didn't like the Moby Grape CD because they didn't really present the first album properly. I agree that this is one of the best albums ever.

I added the site to my bookmarks so I can return from time to time. I bought their first album between 1967 and 1969. I performed many of their songs (I am a 45 year old retired rock lead vocalist / blues harp player) for many years including 8:05, Omaha and Hey Grandma. I also performed several Byrds songs including Mr. Spaceman. As a lead vocalist, I have only lyrics to contribute. However, if my memory serves me, the lyrics were always included with the albums, with the possible exception of Grape Jam. Thanks for posting Naked If You Want To. My brother and I still perform for our own pleasure, and the music really helps. If there is ever anything you want to know about music and bands from that era, just let me know. I performed much of the music, and saw virtually every rock band at various venues during that time.
