Moondog (1969)

Came across this album on YouTube recently and I like it a lot.

The artist had quite an interesting life too. From Wikipedia:

“Louis Thomas Hardin (May 26, 1916 – September 8, 1999), better known as Moondog, was an American composer, musician, poet and inventor of several musical instruments. He was blind from the age of 16. In New York from the late 1940s until he left in 1972, he could often be found on 6th Avenue between 52nd and 55th Street wearing a cloak and Viking-style helmet, sometimes busking or selling music, but often just standing silent and still.”

Give it a listen, and let me know what you think below.
