Oar is the only solo studio album by American rock musician Skip Spence, released on May 19, 1969 by Columbia Records. It was recorded over seven days in December 1968 in Nashville, and features Spence on all of the instruments. Described as one of the most harrowing documents of pain and confusion ever made, the album was recorded after Spence had spent six months in Bellevue Hospital. Spence had been committed to Bellevue following a delusion-driven attempt to attack Moby Grape bandmates Don. Oar - Alexander 'Skip' Spence.

Oar was certainly not the album anyone expected from this psychedelic San Francisco hipster, an album that was released in February of 69 by the major label Columbia, with absolutely zero promotion, and perhaps a bit of indifference, with Spence riding on his name and past reputation alone.

This is the only solo album by former Jefferson Airplane drummer and Moby Grape guitaristsingersongwriter Alexander Spence, aka Skip Spence. He wrote the material during his six-month confinement to New York Citys famous some might say infamous Bellevue Hospitals Psychiatric Ward, which some New Yorkers refer to as the looney bin. Indeed, Skips tenure as a Bellevue patient came as a result of an incident involving his use of a fire axe as a means of attempted entry to the New York hotel rooms of Moby Grape bandmates Jerry Miller guitar and Don Stevenson drums.
