MOBY GRAPE - Live Grape

This was semi-serious attempt to revive the group in 1977; the group (Peter Lewis and Jerry Miller, with occasional help from Mosley and even Spence) played dates throughout the year, mostly around Santa Cruz. A document of this exists as Live Grape, released in 1978 (not including any nights Mosley played), and features a number of new songs.
Manager Matthew Katz, who owned the name "Moby Grape" refused to let the band use it; instead they performed as The Grape, Original Grape, or Maby Grope. "That Lost Horizon" and "Your Rider" are good new Lewis songs, and Miller contributes the country "Here I Sit" and bluesy "I Love You So Much" Only diehards need to bother with it, but it is a pleasant listen.
Do not beleive everything you read about this album. It does not sound as Grape at their beginning but it is a great album to listen to.
1. That Lost Horizon 4:48
2. Here I Sit 2:38
3. Honky Tonk 5:24
4. Cuttin' In 4:51
5. Must Be Goin' Now My Dear 3:35
6. Your Rider 3:12
7. Up In The Air 3:58
8. Set Me Down Easy 5:02
9. Love You So Much 3:38
10. You Got Everything I Need 11:25

Thanks for this post! Not at all like their older classic albums, but still fun to add to their collection. By the way, this was briefly available on purple vinyl!
