The Viking Of Sixth Avenue


Poet, composer, street musician and cosmologist Moondog (Louis Thomas Hardin, 1916-1999) learned rhythm from American Indians and counterpoint from J.S. Bach. Many of his recordings feature instruments he built himself: trimba, yukh, tuji, oo. Sometimes you can hear in the background the streets of New York, where Moondog often slept. A tremendous gatefold presentation and one of Honest Jon's Records most impressive documents to date. Originally released in 2005, now back in stock!
