No one except psychedelic Renaissance man Alexander "Skip" Spence could have created
an album such as Oar. Alternately heralded as a "soundtrack to schizophrenia" and a
"visionary solo effort," Oar became delegated to cut out and bargain bins shortly
after its release in the spring of 1969. However those who did hear it were instantly
drawn into Spence's inimitable sonic surrealism. As his illustrious past in the
Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Moby Grape would suggest, this
album is a pastiche of folk and rock. In reality, however, while these original
compositions may draw from those genres, each song has the individuality of a
fingerprint. As a solo recording, Oar is paramount as Spence performed and produced
every sound on the album himself at Columbia Records studios in Nashville in the
space of less than two weeks. This burst of creativity was directly preceded by a six
month incarceration in New York City's Bellevue Hospital after chopping down a door
at the Albert Hotel en route to do the same to fellow Moby Grape members Jerry Miller
and Don Stevenson. A common motif to this album is the presence of saints and demons.
Even the straightforward narratives such as the love ballad "Broken Heart" or
"Cripple Creek" -- which feature vocal treatments reminiscent of folkie Fred Neil -- are bathed in unusual chord sequences and lyrical double-entendre. The majority of
the sounds on this long-player remain teetering near the precipice of sanity. Primary
examples include "War in Peace," the epic "Grey/Afro," and the sound effect-laden
"Books of Moses." Comparisons have been made to Syd Barrett, John Lennon, and Frank
Zappa -- the latter especially for the intense sonic collage techniques displayed on
albums such as Lumpy Gravy and Civilization Phase III. In 1999, Sundazed Music issued
what is considered the final word on Oar, which has been remastered and boasts over
20 minutes of additional material prepared by Spence. -- Lindsay Planer (AllMusic)
