Description

He was born as Louis Hardin, but in the music world he immortalized himself as Moondog. His avant-garde compositions influenced an entire generation of minimal music composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Now "Moondog", the album of the blind Viking of Manhattan, which he recorded in 1969 under the aegis of producer James William Guercio, is being re-released on vinyl. It is the first pressing of the LP in over a decade and featured all the titles of the original. Inspired by classical music, breathtaking symphonic miniatures (some dedicated to Charlie Parker and Benny Goodman) were created here, which one must have heard in order to believe in their existence.
