Baroque American composer from the classical music parody album Baroque Americana by "The Concertgebluff Authaus Orchestra Society." The music was really by Walter Raim (of folk group The Harvesters) and Stan Green, and likely released in late 1966. The liner notes were written by professional liner notist Tom Carlson.

He was born in New England in 1758, and composed "Sheep May See Nelly Home Safely" and "My Grandfather's Two Part Invention" in his teens. He was unfortunately sent to England to study music right at the start of the American Revolution, and interned for the duration, unable to study. Released after the war, he returned home, music forgotten, and made license plates instead.
