Truly Fine Citizen (Bonus Tracks)
by Moby Grape
Released: Nov 2007
Moby Grape is often seen as nothing more than a vehicle for Alexander "Skip" Spence. But the band was loaded with seriously talented singer-songwriters. 1969's Truly Fine Citizen isn't a masterpiece, but it does feature great contributions from Peter Lewis and Jerry Miller, who steer the band into hard rocking country-soul territory. Recording in Nashville, the Grape sound like an amped up Buffalo Springfield. In fact, Truly Fine Citizen is much more consistent than most Springfield albums.
