It may be super old, but this Moondog record is getting on for over half a century old yet it really doesn't sound like it at all. It sounds like something some 'indiephile' musician would composer to transcend time and return to the 40's and 50's. Viking of Sixth Avenue is a Double LP on Honest Jon's.

10/10 Eggwood Customer review, 5th March 2016VIKING MAGIC Blind, homeless, street poet, Moondog was a well known feature of New York street life, due to his elaborate Viking costume. Few realised however, that he was also a composer of wonderful music. Before listening, you could be forgiven for thinking Moondog is a quirky novelty act or that his music is inaccessible - but give it a listen. Moondog was a serious composer and his music is both beautiful and original. This compilation brings together some of Moondog's best moments. Every track is something slightly different, and each is pure gold. Some sound like hypnotic invocations of Viking magic - their enchanting rhythm drawing you deeper in to the music. Other tracks sound like old time jazz and evoke a sense of the smoggy, dirty city life. The music throughout is calm and soothing, but never boring. If you have never heard it before you really need to check this out.
