The second Moondog album to be released by Hallmark is The Story of Moondog, which officially was his fourth album and released in 1957. Though considered something of an eclectic taste, Moondog was revered by the beatnik generation and an inspiration to several minimalist composers who came along later. The Viking of 6th Avenue, as he became known, may have appeared to be an itinerant performer but his work attracted the attention of several noted musicians, composers and conductors, including Artur Rodzinski and Kenny Graham, as well as attracting numerous tribute songs, including those by Prefab Sprout and T Rex. With a documentary of his life and career currently in production, interest in Moondog is likely to grow.
