Play More Arthur Russell

    This is a short live record made up of Arthur Russell covers which were not included on the first album of of Arthur covers. Recorded throughout various performances in the UK (and one track in Ireland) with a wonderful band of Scots.

    Big thanks to the crowd at The Blue Arrow (Glasgow) in early 2019 . . . it was the energy of these fine folks that inspired this record. The room was on fire while we performed 'Go Bang!' . . . such an explosively fun moment -- and luckily it as recorded -- I thought it deserved to go on a record!

    This new edition of Soul Jazz Records’ ‘The World Of Arthur Russell’, the seminal collection of Arthur Russell’s essential music, is released on heavy deluxe triple vinyl and deluxe tip-on Japanese style CD edition.
    This album brings together some of Russell’s best-loved and most accessible works including his wide-ranging music, both solo and in groups, including Dinosaur L (the essential ‘Go Bang’), Loose Joints (the equally classic ‘Is It All Over My Face’) as well as rarities such as the 7” only ‘Pop Your Funk’, Indian Ocean’s ‘Schoolbell / Treehouse’, Lola’s ‘Wax The Van’ and more.

    Arthur Russell’s music effortlessly crossed musical boundaries making it timeless. His dance music credentials are faultless and this collection features mixes from Larry Levan, Françcois Kevorkian and Walter Gibbons. Similarly, his songwriting, musicality and performance skills are equally cherished, as composer Philip Glass wrote, “this was a guy who could sit down with a cello and sing with it in a way that no one on earth has ever done before or will do again.”

    When Soul Jazz Records’ ‘The World Of Arthur Russell’ first came out in 2003, Russell’s music had slipped into near obscurity. Nearly 15 years later there are over a dozen releases of his music, reissues of his original albums and more. ‘The World Of Arthur Russell’ is the classic first collection of his work available once more.

    Calling Out Of Context

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. 12 extraordinary unreleased tracks from the timeless visionary genius of the New York Underground.

      The compilation that started the renaissance. In 2002 Audika Records entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with the estate of Arthur Russell to compile and issue previously unreleased and out of print material from Arthur’s vast archive.

      World Of Echo - Remastered Edition

        Rough Trade present a revised artwork edition of Arthur Russell’s seminal classic, ‘World Of Echo’ on CD in an edition of 500 copies.

        The packaging is loosely based on the original LP cover art from 1986, now housed in a tri-fold digipack with a rare image of Arthur, plus liner notes.

        Remastered from Arthur’s pristine original 1/4′′ sequenced masters, ‘World Of Echo’ sounds like nothing you have heard or will ever hear. 18 tracks are featured, including drumless versions of his disco classics ‘Let’s Go Swimming’, ‘Tree House’ and ‘Wax The Van’ along with four previously unreleased tracks from ‘Sketches From World Of Echo’.

        Originally released on LP in 1986, ‘World Of Echo’ is a deeply intimate and meditative work of awe-inspiring grace and remains a timeless work of sublime beauty. Arthur’s aim was to achieve what he calls “the most vivid rhythmic reality”, with just cello, voice, and echoes. Arthur achieved all of this and more with ‘World Of Echo’.

        Arthur Russell

        Calling Out Of Context

          During a short, prolific, and often misunderstood career, Arthur Russell bridged the boundaries between downtown New York's vital rock, avant-garde and post-disco scenes of the '70s and '80s. More than a decade after his death from AIDS at age 41, the full breadth and influence of Russell's work will finally reveal itself with various reissues and collections. Following on from Soul Jazz's "The World Of Arthur Russell", "Calling Out of Context" is a collection of his final, unreleased recordings, including a 1985 LP "Corn" and an abandoned LP recorded for Rough Trade between 1986 - 1990. Mixing funky, avant garde rhythms with pop melodies Russell created some of the most beautiful, off kilter tracks from that time.
