Moby Grape - It's a beautiful day today


I played this the first time, lip synching and all, and thought it was neat. Then I found I had to play it over and over and over. I don't know if it is Skip Spence or Peter Lewis on the background vocal but it's hypnotically gorgeous. Tinges of Grace and Marty. Friends I knew from the scene said they were definitely the most talented Bay Area band of their time. Mosley looks like a member of the Four Seasons. What a tragic end for most of the participants. Was looking for murder in my heart for the judge but this is truly excellent.

Skip Spence was long gone by then. Saw Moby Grape at the Fillmore with It's a Beautiful day. Great concert.
