Moby Grape was one of the groups to come out of San Francisco in the late 1960’s, with a sound that blended folk, blues, country, jazz, rock, and, of course, psychedelia.  The Grape was known for having all five members not only write the music, but also to serve as lead singers.  Unfortunately, mismanagement, both by Columbia Records and their manager, hindered their success and popularity at the time.  Fifty years later, they are recognized as being one of the bright lights of the San Francisco scene, deserving of greater recognition and respect.  Here is the Moby Grape album discography.
