Moondog  - Moondog / Moondog 2 download album

Moondog 2 is the sixth album by American composer Moondog AKA Louis Thomas Hardin. This album was the followup to the 1969 album Moondog. Produced with James William Guercio, it featured Moondog's daughter June Hardin as a vocalist. Unlike his previous instrumental album, which was largely performed by an orchestra, Moondog 2 contains vocal compositions in canons, rounds, and madrigals

His influence can be seen in the music of Stereolab and Moonshake among many others. For his own label see Moondog Records (2). Sites: moondogscorner.

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.

This BGO Records reissue, Moondog - Moondog 2, debuted in England literally on the heels of news of Hardin's passing in 1999, and it is hard not to fault label for cashing in on stakes made liquid by the ever-unpredictable vicissitudes of the grim reaper. For many listeners, the first Moondog CBS album is his defining statement, even as what came before, and after, broadens the picture of Hardin's output considerably.
