After playing in Moby Grape, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Jefferson Airplane, Alexander "Skip" Spence created one of rock's truly visionary landmarks, 1969's acid soaked Oar. His only solo album, the disc was more than a little too far out for the record-buying public when it was first released. But in the intervening decades, it's become a holy grail for sonic surrealists everywhere and an unquestioned touchstone of the recent acid-freak-folk movement.

He has only 3 more days left to finish the album. It's been fast and furious and its also been tough, recording every instrument on every...

            Two of Skip's rare post-Oar studio excursions; "All My Life (I Love You)," from '72, has the boisterous feel of Spence's best work with The Moby Grape, while "Land Of The Sun", recorded in '96 with the X-Files in mind, sounds like nothing else under the sun, and finds Skip sonorously intoning a poem atop a psychedelic bed of sound.Also available as a digital download on iTunes.
