Arthur Russell - The World of Arthur Russell

It's not easy to describe Arthur Russell. He was a pioneer that helped redefine 70's dance music but he wasn't just limited to that. His music ranged from cello compositions, to weird left field disco, to psychedelic blues, to percussion heavy jazz-funk, to no wave implosions. This great compilation from Soul Jazz records gives us a taste of everything and includes some mined blowing remixes by 70's disco masters Larry Levan, Francois Kevorkian, and Walter Gibbons.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this now deleted, rare-as-moon-cheese nugget. Much love & thanks to Arthur the pioneer, innovator & free thinker. "I wanna go back..." Indeed.
