although this album has been often slighted by would be critics of moby grape,to me it stands as an album with the word genius all over it. from peter lewis" "he" to skip spence"s "lou waxman" treat,its pure magic. recorded under less than peacfull circumstances,its amazing they finished the album at all..and fellow supporter david rubinson MUST be aknowledged for his help in making this album possible. david added strings and horns and ,by doing this,the album becomes more of a "mystery" tour! skippy spence' presense on the album is vivid and hes there! both "funky tunk" and "motorcycle irene" are spence gems. jerry miller is especially in fine form on this album..if you ask me,his playing is more outstanding here than on the first lp. "millers blues" only needs one listen to know this man had (has!) what it took. that leaves bob mosley and don stevenson..both who contribute the albums best moments vocaly..stevenson on"cant be so bad" and mosley on"three four" which is one of the most undrrated songs the group ever recorded. bob has a voice like otis redding and he shows its full power on this track. the givaway lp that came with this was called "grape jam' and was in all essence just that..grape..jammin. its ok! it was the 60s man! buy it.you wont be sorry!Was this review helpful?
