Does anyone remember Moondog?

When I was a teenager I used to listen to music by Moondog. At the time I did not know anything about the artist. Today, I did a search of the web and discovered that his real name was Louis Thomas Hardin, and that he was a blind musician in 1999. His music sounds fairly ordinary today but it seemed very strange in the early 1960s.

thanks John, that's lovely.

"The Viking of 6th Avenue"..hmmm. There's something that reminds me of Beethoven who was also versatile and an inventor, as well as 'eccentric'.
