Music * We hear Portrait Gallery
from Luke Howard. * A smidgen of Julia Kent's lovely Dorval
. * The incomparable Moondog's Gloving It
pops up a couple times (as it tends to do around these parts). * Denmark
by the Portland Cello Project rolls out for quite awhile. * John Lewis and Sacha Distel play the title track
from their Afternoon in Paris album. * We hear To
, from Zach Cooper's Styles Upon Styles. * There's a bit of Eine Kleine Gamelan Music
from The Gamelan Son of Lion (seriously). * Ends on P
, by Labradford.
NOTES * The classic text on Charlie Faust is Lawrence Ritter's The Glory of Their Times:the Story of the Early Days of Baseball as Told by the Men Who Played It, one of the key texts of early baseball history, first published in 1966. * The definitive resource on Faust is Gabriel Schecter, who's written his biography
for SABR, the Society for American Baseball Research, and a monograph called Victory Faust: The Rube Who Saved McGraw's Giants
. * I also want to point you to Rob Neyer's lovely piece
on visiting Faust's grave.
