Moby Grape album by album in a bit!!! Dark Magic by Moby Grape Dark Magic was the Grape's signature psychedelic long song. In the same way that Dark Star by the Dead, and Quicksilver's Who Do You Love were for those epic long song bands. The decision to not include a studio version on their first album, instead creating an album of short hook laden tracks featuring each member, was a career changing decision. Of course, I wouldn't trade any track on what is one of the greatest debut albums ever, period, for any band. But imagine a double studio LP with some of those psychedelic Fillmore/Avalon Ballroom staples like Dark Magic?! Or live Avalon/Monterey tracks. Kinda mind blowing to think about. It had not been heard in decades until the Sundazed 2004 release of Moby Grape Live. double LP. Here is a 2007 Moby Grape rehearsal with Peter Lewis, Omar Spence (Skips son), and looks like Don Stevenson on the Drums. Practicing "Dark Magic" for The Real Potato, a 2010 album that would sadly never be released. In fact a whole album of songs were recorded for inclusion on yet another aborted album in the strange saga of the life of Moby Grape. (See my thread "The Real Potato" for details).
