What's this? Moondog on Mudcat? Those first three albums are very precious, and we play his orchestral stuff & madrigals a lot in the car too. In terms of cranky Americana I'd say he's up there with Harpo Marx, Martin Denny, Sun Ra and Harry Partch. Lots of choice Moondog & Martin Denny re-issues cropping up lately - I was looking at a few on Saturday in Probe (Liverpool) which since its move to the precints of the Blue Coat seems to have got very folky. I like a shop where you can buy vinyl re-issues of Shirley Collins albums (in their correct covers) alongside all of the above and more besides - & always good to see Ennio Morricone's legendary / hip status assured in perpetuity. Check it out.
