The End of an Ear is the debut solo album by Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt. The album was recorded in August 1970, while taking a break from Soft Machine (which he would eventually exit the following year). Containing mostly free jazz and experimental music, with no lyrics (only vocal experimentation by Wyatt), it is an unusual album. It includes Soft Machine's Elton Dean on saxophone and Caravan's David Sinclair on organ, who in 1971 would join Wyatt in the group Matching Mole.

Robert Wyatt's End of an Ear isn't a serious attempt to kick off a solo career - Rock Bottom would play that role four years later - so much as it represents Wyatt letting off a bit of steam. The Soft Machine had just recorded Third, an album on which Wyatt's drumming naturally played an essential role but on which his vocals were limited to one song - his own Moon In June, a composition the rest of the band were so disinterested in he had to perform most of it himself
