Fricke's Picks: Rare Moby Grape

By |

The 1967-68 outtakes on The Place and the Time (Sundazed) were first released as bonus tracks on 2007 reissues of Moby Grape's Columbia LPs, including withdrawn versions of 1967's spectacular Moby Grape and '68's Wow. Here, on one CD, these rarities — among them rowdy audition tracks and Moby Grape outtakes — are a dynamic alternate portrait of the star-crossed San Francisco band at work, fusing pop, soul, blues and country with psychedelic zeal.
