Moby Grape was known for a lot of other things too. Considered, by some as the greatest band to come out of the 60’s San Francisco scene, they were also among the most over hyped. A bizarre marketing decision (they had five songs from their debut album issued simultaneously) almost caused fans to dismiss them as hype. Fans did find that a band that on their debut album could seemingly do it all, as songs that blended Psychedelic, Blues, Rock, Jazz and Country so effortlessly that they overcame their initial backlash and were christened the next big thing. It didn’t happen as infighting and inconsistent future efforts led Moby Grape to become one of the biggest disappointments in Rock history. Still, a cult band representing an important music scene (San Francisco) can’t be completely dismissed and might receive a look from the Hall.
