2012 repress. Musical saw classic from 1920s. Saw & guitar soli played by a wizard of strings. A must have for the listener who like this genre. Innovator of the octo-chorda (an open/alternate-tuned eight-string steel guitar), banjo, singing saw, inflated rubber balloon, and various other "household instruments," Floridian Samuel Pasco Moore (1887-1959) was a darling both in NYC and on the vaudeville circuit during his 1920s heyday. While novelty acts suffered the pitfalls of most soft-soapers, Moore's sound is startling, heavenly, haunted Southern folk, Hawaiian and ragtime, the ghosts of Stephen Foster, and the stretching, endlessly splayed void that he carelessly toys with. Moooohieee!, his first compendium, on which he plays the octo-chorda and singing saw in duo settings, collects 13 of the man's unknown amount of sides.
