About this item

The late Arthur Russell wrote and played disco non-anthems, solo pieces for cello and voice and tender pop in the late 70s through the 80s. He was a musician of eclectic training with a great ear for dance rhythms and heavy atonality. "Calling Out Of Context" is the record that Arthur Russell was working on for Rough Trade during the last 5 years of his life. It incorporates all the many facets of Arthur's distinctive and diverse music and as such, it was a fitting finale to an incredible legacy. Melodic, innovative and sonically unique, the tracks on this LP are a dreamlike testimony to the genius of NY's Downtown visionary.
