This is the US pressing of this title which had a very short life due to litigation arising over the Moby Grape name and catalog.

The actual title of track 11, disc 2 should be "If You Can't Learn From My Mistakes".

All tracks are the original mixes with the exception of the previously unreleased tracks (Disc 1, tracks 8, 15-21 and 24 and disc 2, tracks 2, 11 & 23) which are represented in new mixes. "Hey Grandma" and "Omaha" have been extended.

2-24b and c are hidden tracks which appear after a minute of silence after the last listed track.

Several cuts have studio banter attached to them.

Producer's Note:
Except where noted, the material on this set was digitally transferred from original producer David Rubinson's 2-track stereo masters. As a result of his vision and experimentation (i.e.: purposely placing the background vocals out of phase, thereby successfully achieving a unique spaciousness in the mix), some of the earlier cuts will not be entirely mono compatible. We have included the tracks "Omaha" and "Hey Grandma" in their original mono mix form as well.

* 2 CDs featuring 48 classic & rare recordings

* A complete chronicle of The Grape's Columbia recordings including unreleased songs, alternate versions, outrageous studio banter, & much more!

* Notes and discography

"The Grape were the kind of do-it-all combo to come along only once or twice in a rock 'n' roll generation..." - David Fricke, Rolling Stone

"The Very Best of Moby Grape is clearly the rock reissue of the year, if not the decade." - Steve Simels, Stereo Review

"Like wow, man." - A fan

This release also carries a "Parental Advisory - Explicit Lyrics" sticker, although this owes to the included "outrageous studio banter" and not any of the lyrics themselves.

This release is identified as belonging to the "Rock Artifacts" series.
