The sad fact of CBS Records' promotion for Moby Grape is underlined here, wherein they released almost all of the album's tracks as singles, resulting in over-saturation. "Omaha" was possibly the one single on the album that could have gone Top Ten. It's been described as "the Beatles on speed," and that's pretty accurate. A jubilant, hook-laden rocker with a devastating chorus ("'Listen my friends"), it was more than radio-friendly. Written by Moby Grape wild card, Skip Spence, it was about all of the (short-lived) good vibes that surrounded the band in their salad days. It was neatly covered by Golden Palmiminos, with Michael Stipe, in the 1980s.
