Listen My Friends! The Best of Moby Grape is a compilation album by Moby Grape, released in 2007 by Columbia Records as part of its "Legacy" series.


The compilation was released in the year following a final judicial determination that the members of Moby Grape had a right to ownership of the band name and related royalties, rather than their former manager, Matthew Katz.[2] As noted rock music reviewer Richie Unterberger commented, "...almost every track is impressive, making a case for the band as one of the '60s outfits who most adeptly blended rock, folk, blues, and country with touches of psychedelia, as well as showing their post-1967 stuff (at least the best of it) to be sturdier than is usually remembered."[3]
