Moondog is the fifth album by American composer Moondog. Moondog had released no music for twelve years since his 1957 album The Story of Moondog. Finally, in 1969, producer James William Guercio invited him to record an album for Columbia Records. The resulting album compiled various music which Moondog had been working on since the 1950s.
Louis Thomas Hardin (May 26, 1916 – September 8, 1999), also known as Moondog, was an American musician, composer, theoretician, poet and inventor of several musical instruments. He was blind from the age of 16. Hardin lived in New York City from the late 1940s until 1972, and during this time he could often be found on 6th Avenue, between 52nd and 55th Streets, wearing a cloak and a horned helmet sometimes busking or selling music, but often just standing silently on the sidewalk.
Moondog 1955 Moondog And His Honking Geese Playing Moondog's Music. 01. Rabbit Hop 02. Bumbo 03. Dog Trot 04. Single Foot. Originally released on Moondog Records 1955. It's real quirky cartoon sounding music, I can just imagine this fitting perfectly into one of those old juddery black and white cartoons. This was made in the mid '50s, but it sounds much older than that, like at least a decade older. a very jazzy side of moondog. maybe not the most "out there" or innovative work of his, but it certainly is up there with his best stuff.
