||De-mystifing Spence and Oar|
If you listen the !991 extended CD edition of Oar you see that Skip was not really half insane but just half serious in his attemp to make a solo album.
By Woody (Woodbridge, NJ)
||Up a creek without a paddle|
Way overated DIY recording from the late Spence. Oar has a couple of good moments but that's all. Why do people insist that this half insane artist is a genius.
By Steve G (NYC, NY)
||truly strange,but compelling none the less|
if you love moby grape,then by all means don't even question purchasing this music. there's alot to think and feel with this one,the tragedy of skip spences fall from sanity,his sense of humor,love of music,the loss of what might have come out of that fertile brain until the mental illness ended it for him.
By a reviewer (naples,fl)
||The American Syd Barrett|
Bless his soul. Often referred to as a genius????. Poor 'ole Skip. Buy the Moby Grape records instead to remember this lost soul.
By budnell (Pineville, Louisiana, USA)
There's something strangely compelling and eerie about this album. Mostly written whilst Spence was incarcerated and grappling with mental illness it covers a lot of ground from country to rock to psychedelica to.
