Moby Grape – Come in the Morning / Hey Grandma

Old-Timer Tuesday
Most of the music posted here is new or newish. However, as a nod to the elders, Tuesdays will now officially be known as “Old-Timer Tuesday”, which will be reserved strictly for music that was written and/or recorded before the year 2000.

1967

Moby Grape was an American rock band that was active sporadically throughout the 1960s and 1970s.

Jeff Tamarkin, editor of Relix and Goldmine, described Moby Grape’s not-exactly-a-legacy succinctly: “The Grape’s saga is one of squandered potential, absurdly misguided decisions, bad luck, blunders and excruciating heartbreak, all set to the tune of some of the greatest rock and roll ever to emerge from San Francisco. Moby Grape could have had it all, but they ended up with nothing, and less.”

That’s tragically accurate.

RIYL: The Rolling Stones, drugs, poor decisions, old-fashioned rock n’ roll, good music
