About this item

Originally released by Prestige in 1956, "More Moondog" finally gets remastered (at Abbey Road no less) and reissued by Honest Jon's. The 16 tracks were all recorded while Moondog was homeless and living on the streets. This is Moondog at his most direct, original, fresh, playful and unpretentious, featuring the Honking Geese, Tony Schwartz's brilliant outdoors recordings (particularly improved in Honest Jon's new version), with interventions from a ship's foghorn, a tapdancer and a cocker spaniel, and signature rhythms for homemade instruments trimba, oo, tuji, yukh, and ostrich feathers.
