Moby Grape - 1968 - Grape Jam

Grape Jam was criticized for its rather loose and mostly improvised performances which contrast sharply with the heavily produced material on "Wow". This studio album was recorded in New York City in January and February 1968. Skip Spence is mostly absent and Peter Lewis does not appear on the album. Never is notable as a probable source for Led Zeppelin's Since I've Been Loving You: the opening lyrics, the bluesy feel and some melodic elements are almost identical. "The Lake" is a strange combination of poetry submitted by a fan and avant-garde psychedelic Musique concrète sound effects somewhat like side four of Freak Out! or Revolution 9. Grape Jam is also notable in that it features a guest appearances on piano by Al Kooper and Mike Bloomfield. The album was the inspiration for a number of other studio "jam" albums during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Later examples of this trend included Al Kooper's Super Session and the 3rd LP of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass. (wiki)
