SPOILERS BELOW

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.
* 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.
