The original Moby Grape quintet re-forms, and newcomer Gorden Stevens is added to play viola and mandolin.
David Rubinson is back as co-producer [with the band] and plays electric piano and congas.

Twenty Granite Creek is an appealing "stew" of hard guitar rock, country rock and attractive ballads. It's all here as usual: memorable melodies, fine hooks, and the bands unique singing and vocal harmonies. There were singles from Twenty Granite Creek but they failed to as chart as did the album, probably for all the usual reasons.
