MP3 of the Day
American author Herman Melville, died on this day in 1891. Melville wrote the novel Moby-Dick which was originally misunderstood by contemporary audiences and critics. He died at his home in New York City at the age 72. Almost completely forgotten at the time, his New York Times obituary called him “Henry Melville”. It was not until the “Melville Revival” in the early 20th century that his work won recognition, most notably Moby-Dick which is often considered one of the greatest literary works of all time. Today we have the song Northern Whale by The Good, The Bad & The Queen.
