MoondogMoondog – The Viking Of Sixth Avenue ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual instruments of his own invention, and in a minimal, rhythmic style that linked together primitivism with higher musical ideals. Moondog's often been called "the father of minimalism" – and while his experiments of the 50s prefaced the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and others, his work was also much more personal, and had an earthy intensity that's still tremendously powerful even decades later! This collection is one of the first to dip into the earliest of Moondog's recordings – his recordings for the Mars, SRC, Brunswick, and Moondog labels – which are presented here alongside selected tracks from his albums for Epic and Prestige, also of similar vintage. Nearly all the tracks here offer a very primitive blend of percussion that's sometimes mixed with unusual woodwind or stringed instruments – nearly all of Moondog's own invention – and the package also features some great notes on his long career, plus some photos that are as gripping as the music itself! Titles include "Down Is Up", "Big Cat", "Bumbo", "Rimshot", "Rabbit Hop", "Instrumental Round", "Be A Hobo", "Dog Trot", "Oasis", "2 W 46th Street", and "Why Spend The Dark Night With You".

Stockhausen/Pierre Schaeffer/Pierre Henry/etcAdventures In Sound ... CD
El (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $8.99
An amazing collection of experimental sounds from the European scene of the postwar years – key electronic and musique concrete recordings from some of the most important composers of the 20th Century! The package is a great introduction to this important stretch in music – and features recordings that are every bit as mindblowing now as they were over 50 years ago – really revolutionary sounds and tones that went onto have an undeniable impact on modern music, yet which still sound even more amazing here in the original source recordings. Includes "Poeme Electronique" by Edgard Varese, "Voile D'Orphee" by Pierre Henre, "Diamorphoses" and "Concret PH" by Iannis Xenakis, "Studie Nr 1" and "Gesang Der Junglinge" by Karlheinz Stockhausen, and "Cinq Etudes De Bruits" by Pierre Schaeffer.

New Charlotte MoormanCello Anthology Vol 1 – WBAI Concert New York – Sept 12th, 1964 ... CD
Alga Marghen (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A well-recorded concert performance from Fluxus legend Charlotte Moorman – done at Judson Hall in 1964, and featuring Moorman on a host of wonderfully diverse material! The music here really represents the forefront of 20th century composition for cello – almost a whole new medium, given the lack of solo cello works from previous centuries – which also makes it a rich tapestry for new ideas. Pieces include "Synergy", composed by Earle Brown for tape and cello; Giuseppe Chari's "Per Arco", which was written for tape and "reactions of a cellist"; "Plus Minus" by Stockhausen, which is done here with Nam June Paik and his Robot K-456; Terry Jennings' "Piece For Cello & Saxophone" with Jennings on soprano sax; "26' 1.1499" For A String Player" by John Cage; and "Duet II" by Toshi Ichiyanagi, with piano from Nam June Paik.
