One of Bob Mosley's finest early period compositions, "Bitter Wind" graced Moby Grape's initial repertoire. It's a beautifully written ballad that uses the metaphor of nature trees and wind to illustrate a man's depression. It's deeply affecting and has a strong spiritual quality to it. Musically, it has a strong, folk base to it, but - as always - Mosley's soul and R&B roots show through. A fabulous early version (which is completely different) is available on the Vintage anthology. The standard release is also on this collection, as well as the Wow album.
