"This twenty-five piece selection is entitled Madrigal Book 1, and is a nod to the system Johann Sebastian Bach used for his Well-tempered clavier. Here, Moondog passes through all the major and minor tonalities, following the cycle of fourths. The album spans twenty years of composing and bohemian life in the very heart of Manhattan, on its streets and under its porches. The record features pieces from the early 1950s as well as later canons written in June 1968. All are autobiographical, or at least reflect the state of mind of their author. This collection constitutes a marvelous window on Moondog's universe. "--insert

Moondog, born Louis Thomas Hardin (May 26, 1916 - September 8, 1999), was a blind American composer, musician, poet and inventor of several musical instruments. Moving to New York as a young man, Moondog made a deliberate decision to make his home on the streets there, where he spent approximately twenty of the thirty years he lived in the city. Most days he could be found in his chosen part of town wearing clothes he had created based on his own interpretation of the Norse god Odin. Thanks to his unconventional outfits and lifestyle, he was known for much of his life as "The Viking of 6th Avenue."
