Totally essential two cd collection of some of the most elusive Moondog material of all . When the "Viking of Sixth Avenue" single volume compilation was reissued, we pleaded that here was truly a taste worth acquiring. Louis Hardin somehow managed to find the musical continuities between Bach, native american Sundances, be-bop, Stravinsky and yet still pursue his own musical paths and sound utterly unique. Strong claim, but the music truly bears it out. Drawing the entire disc one from the ultra-rare Timbra released Big Band album from 1995 and pairing it with Moondog's own rhyming notes and insights into each of the fourteen tunes proves a captivating experience. Disc two draws 6 tunes never before released on CD, from "Bracelli" the lovely "magic ring" distilled from Hardin's much larger Creation which is simply put, one of the most beautiful pieces i've ever heard. Reason enough to get involved on its own. Simply as a primer for the man's work this comes with the highest possible recommendation - Moondog was genuinely one of the true earth angels.
